Trying to decide which fabric I want to use for a background.
I have layed these fabrics out, looked at them several times.
I have taken pictures and looked at them. Still can't decide.
I like the lighter color, but---like the airiness of the greener fabric
These fabrics are from my stash, really didn't want to make the trip to buy more fabric. But I want whats best for my quilt.
Maybe neither one will work? Maybe I do need to go buy
more fabric for a better choice? LOL
Thought I'd see what the majority of quilters liked best.
Let me know which one you like best or if neither fabric works.
thanks

I prefer the lighter fabric. Your blocks are beautiful! Be sure to show us the finished product!

I think the 2nd background looks the best of the 2 pictured, especially if you are planning on using the green & sunflower fabrics as borders.

The lighter fabric makes the blocks the focal point, so that is what I would use.
