Black It Is!

I took the batik strips that I cut for tomorrow's Ami Simms String Quilting workshop to Needles Quilt Shop this morning to audition setting fabrics. I tried several different fabrics and after a few minutes I had it narrowed down to two choices, lime green or black. I liked them both equally as well and was having a tough time deciding until my friend, Kathy (blogless...hint, hint Kathy!) suggested the black batik with lime green quilting and binding. That was all it took...black it is!

Yep I know what you mean I would have been torn between those two colours also but sounds like the solution is going to be great, Can't wait to see it in the next stage.

Oh boy I can't wait to see the finished project. How about showing us tidbits now and then as you go ;>) p-l-e-a-s-e?

This is going to be so beautiful. Very striking batiks, and the black really sets it off!
