    I am going to be making an appliqued panda quilt for one of my grandchildren, I found this adorable black and white adorable panda fabric for the borders. The panda is of couse black and white with pieces of bamboo embroidered within each design.
    I am wondering what color would look good for a background with the black and white, I thought about green but it doesn't hit me just right lol. What is your suggestions?

    red - it goes with the asian theme.

    yellow - it would look like the sun

    blue - it would look like a sky background

    any color that appeals to the grandchild would be perfect. Maybe a variegated fabric or a fabric with mixed colors? Black and white make a wonderful palette for any other color or colors you want. at least imho
