Can anyone please help?
I am in the process of picking fabric for a quilt (for my mum) and she has chosen Kaffe Fassett collection of brights
(I don't know why the first sentence is as it is - can't undo, I'll keep going)
and I am choosing an easy pattern of 'split 9-patch'
My quandary is that the pattern asks for a 'neutral' fabric for the pinwheel pattern, which is fairly dominant and I have no idea what to choose. (By the way, Mum wants me pick what I think is best - greeeaaaat!)
I bought a creamy self-patterned colour as a neutral but it seems to stand out too much and reading through Kaffe's books, his quilts do not use white/cream, especially in his bright ones.
I am scared to just add a block colour as I don't want this to stand out either against all of the pattern. I have bought 3 fabrics so far, but one is too muted, other too strongly patterned and maybe too dark
What to do???
