I’ve been working on this big ol’ monster, and have finally started quilting it!
The value difference between the yellow and the low-volume background isn’t as strong as it could be, but the school colors are blue and yellow. So I was sort of stuck with this, short of using only nearly-white fabrics for the background. It’s kind of a fun “I Spy” sort of thing going with the mix of prints in all the colors.
I’m going to emphasize the difference between the two with different quilting patterns and thread colors. Right now I’m doing the blue bits in blue thread in a paisley design. I think in the yellow I’m going to echo the shapes with gold thread, and then do a meander in all the background.
