That sounds yummy, Suz. Do you have a picture? I'm working on a collaged fabric panel (sparked by an article in the Feb/March issue of Quilting Arts Magazine) where collaged, embroidered, embellished blocks will be appliqued onto a quilted background. It's very monochromatic in blacks and browns. I think I might try a narrow flange of subtle color like brick red between the background and the appliqued blocks.
