    Scrappy Dresden Plate update & ?

    I have been working on this little project all day and want suggestions as to what color background you would like to see them on?

    Original post:

    I got six plates from the scraps.

    Very cute - what about that pale teal that is in the scraps? That's the color on my screen so I hope it matches in real life...lol.

    They are just beautiful! I'm not good at picking colors without auditioning them actually next to the blocks but I would lean toward a very pale yellow or white or cream. Whatever makes them pop!

    Your Dresdens are darn cute! I think I would see how they look on cream or pale yellow/green.

    I like your Dresden's, I would go black or a very dark brown, all your colors including the very lights will really stand out

    I am thinking you should lay them out on a chocolate (pretty) brown. I never thought I would like that as a background but recently saw one with a chocolate brown background and colors very similar to yours and it looked wonderful.

    I think a solid white will go well with your Dresden plate, it will make the colors stand out. Good luck to you.

    Hi. Try grey or black with a bright yellow centre in all of them and a thin binding in the same yellow.

    Very nice color combinations.
    I'd like to suggest either a brown or blue, both a deeper shade of the colors in your fabric

    Your Dresdens are wonderful! I'd like to see them on either a pale aqua or yellow background.

    I actually think a dark color would make them pop. Maybe a dark green?
