This is a wall hanging that I'm making of a civil war hospital or field cot. It is with Civil War Repro fabrics. There is a strip between each column of blocks (no sashing), and then bordered with the same fabric. The original design has a light beige or cream colored border/strips. I don't want a cream border to blend too much with the beiges/creams in the blocks, but I don't know what other color I would use. I'd like to stay with the original design of beige/cream, but this is where I get lost. Should I use a darker, almost brown? A tan? A solid? A print?
Color choice has never been easy for me, and apparently after 3 years I'm still struggling. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
BTW, the second picture is just amusing (to me anyway). We were would supposed to get scattered rain yesterday! Alot of the snow has already melted. You have to love March!
