possible backgrounds???

In every quilt there are millions of decisions to be made, this is a new pick of two more possiblities the first 3 comments are on the old pic , thanks…. so many people see my quilts and go on and on about how someone can handsew that many but most think the colors and choices just come naturally to me like magic or something and that is the hard part to come up with a ideal and then pick and chose what is going to go into it , I audition fabrics for days and days then just sit and breath with them until something  speaks to me, I think this background which is a black is winning right now , I liked the greenish one but it just wasnt as dramantic as this one ,that is why I have such a large stash I cant walk into a quilt shop and decided anything , I hope that this discussion will help the newbies to see a little of the process they might encounter with making their own quilts, Thanks a million time over for every comment , it does help alot   Linda

  1. I agree with Dale Kathryn,  the blue is too distracting from your beautiful stars…

    Is it possible that you have in your “stash” some more examples…???

    but…….most important…what pleases you…is important…we all have a different eye. ..You have given us so many wonderful Kaleidoscopes…so JUST GO FOR IT….. I am sure it will be different & very attractive.

  2. I love your idea of breathing with the fabrics until they speak to you. I wish I could do that as a newbie.I shall try now that I have more time on my hands. I let you know in time.

    Kind regards,

  3. I dont know how to describe the way I pick and choose fabrics , its close to what one does when you look at one of those 3D pics  , you just got  to seprate the mind from the eye somehow ,I guess feel it instead of seeing it 🙂

  4. yeah I liked that but when I took it outside I saw navy instead of black , a good friend poked into her stash and brought out a wild possible fabric I” get it up and take a pic of it as soon as I can 🙂

  5. I dont know if anyone is still watching the differant backgrounds on here but this one is a weird possiblity  , its the same strange blue green as the little fruit things have on it and even though its busy the stars seem to show up , I guess show up and meld in both
