    Which would you choose?

    I am working on the Tradewinds pattern and can't decide which batik to use as the "background". I think I like them both, but don't want to start cutting till I'm sure. Which would you choose?Name:  tradewinds1.jpg

    I like 1. I think it blends better with the fabrics.

    #1 matches the warmth of the other fabrics. #2 is a cool fabric.

    For me the first one is much more pleasing to the eye with the combination of your fabrics so 1 vote for #1.

    Should add.....the other fabrics contrast with #2 and your pattern pops up due to this. Both would work based on what you want to accomplish.

    I have surprised myself by actually preferring the second one. I really like the first one, it's very warm and tones down your batiks, but something about that cool white fabric in number two really makes your batiks "pop"!

    I don't think you can go wrong either way. Both are gorgeous! If warm is what you're going for then number one. If you really want to make the batiks stand out and shine, then number two gets the job done beautifully.

    #1 is more restful. #2 has more pop. Personally, I like the look of #1.

    I like the warmer color. Not the white. It blends really well.
