When I'm looking for some therapeutic sewing, I make 4 patches. So 4 patches were on order for today in the sewing room.
First I made a small pile of yellow/purple. One of my favorite color combinations.
I paired them with a Betty Boop in Las Vagas focus fabric and casino tokens as the remaining border. Pattern here. I had to adjust the pattern slightly as all I had of the Betty Boop focus fabric was a 40 x 44 piece. This combination just wasn't working for me (sorry for the blurry Betty's).
Then I made a small pile of black/white 4 patches. Did I tell you that I love to make 4 patches?!
When I paired these 4 patches, I think the whole top looks better. (More blurry Betty's, sorry) I think I'm leaning towards using the black/white combination. To me, it just seems to make the quilt *pop*. Just to be safe, I thought I would ask the design team for input...so what do you think looks better? (if you ignore the blurry Betty's and just look at the color combinations)
