    While waiting for my D9P to come back from being quilted I decided to start on this. I don't have anything pieced yet, just cut. Do you like the background? or should I use different and should I change any of floral squares around? Not a very good picture. The floral fabric is really pretty.

    That's really really pretty! I think white or black would make the flowers pop! Your placement looks great to me.

    That looks really pretty!!! I have a lot of Oriental fabrics I have not figured out how I want to use them cause you kinda need some big squares to show off the print. I like this idea!!

    Looks great as is. As a side note the politically correct term is "Asian" not Oriental. That word/term may offend some people. Just an FYI :>

    Sorry, guess I'm not politically correct. I'll say my Asian fabric, sure don't want to offend anyone.

    I was referring to the light colored fabric you have around the flower blocks. Just test it out, black may or may not work depending on how dark your flower blocks are. Sometimes when you're looking at a computer screen the colors are not as accurate as they are in real life.
