    I want to shadow and float these as I`ve seen here in some tshirt quilts.
    Would I have to use white or off white or can I use another very pale colour to get that effect?
    Sure luv the board and all sugesstions are very welcomed!
    Thanks Gale
    Forgot to ask those who have done this I`m asumming that the one sashing strip that goes on the left equals the shadow and sash strip on the right. right?

    I think you are on the right track with a lighter pale color. I think a really pale pink with just a hint of texture would be perfect. Beautiful piece of work, by the way.

    A pale pink would be pretty but maybe even a light green?

    Also, I think I would do a binding to match the purpke/blue background after the light border. That will make it really pop and glow! I can't wait to see it done! :)

    Pink is warm and will advance toward your eye as warm colors do. Try it by laying a thin sliver of fabric next to the piece to audition the color, and see if you like it or if it is distracting. I think maybe I'd go with a dove grey.

    I hate being the only one thinking a white on white patterned fabric would be the next one, but I do! It would bring out the center really nice.

    Pink is one of my favorite colors but I don't think it works with this quilt for some reason............. I also think black would be stunning.

    It is so pretty!!! I love the colors & how you have the boarder. I think a pale pink, magenta, black, or gray. So I think you have several choices. Can't wait to see what you choose, but I have patience!
