I got a bit distracted over the weekend by the scraps from piecing the Sesen curve star blocks. I love that the scraps created by my patterns that use curve star blocks can be quickly transformed into another quilt (the Sky Full of Stars pattern also offers the Hang On bonus pattern and the Pistils & Pollen pattern also offers the Bonus Boquet bonus pattern).
My stack of scraps (Kona Coral and Kumquat) waiting to be turned into something new for Sesen sent me looking at my stash to pick out a background fabric. I have 3 options that stood out to me, and I’m curious to know which you would pick.
The first option is Kona Basil, which I felt could offset the warm colors nicely.
The second option that caught my eye was Kona Purple, which seems to make the warm colors have a lot of energy.
And the third option is Kona Burgundy, which would keep the color story closer to an analogous scheme.
I also created a quick illustration mockup to help me evaluate how the colors work together, because those tiny swatches don’t necessarily give a great perspective. I’d love to know: which would you chose for the background and why?
