    Love how the Grey just softens things up and marries all the colors together. I also like the uniqueness of your design.

    Such a clever way to display the hexagons. I love the vintage look of this quilt.

    I agree.
    The background is not something I would have considered personally simply because I would be afraid, but it really works and has encouraged me to be more adventurous in the future to try to go outside my usual comfort zone of calico for backgrounds. Thanks for sharing your lovely work.
