See below a picture of the center of the quilt all in purples. Around the center I am placing a "boarder" of applique tulips, as you can see the one on the upper left.
I wanted to include more colors so I decided to add yellows and oranges on the applique tulip, while all the stems and leaves will be of the same fabric as I am showing. Each of the surrounding blocks will have for background the center fabrics.
Question #1: What do you think, will it be ok that yellows and oranges don't show up in the center at all?
Question #2: Should I add some dark purple sashing between the center and this new row?
Your feed back is much appreciated.
Questions #3 about applique: What is tour trick to prevent that the background bleeds through the applique piece?
