Now this one is relatively recent. I had a relatively small piece of the sunflower fabric which I loved. Then I found the batik that is the outer border. I usually do not go for batiks but this one appealed to me. I guess because it looked rusty! Everything else came from stash based on those two fabrics. This one has the almost white background with really pale green flowers. Bought especially to back this quilt. It is not a fabric I would ever buy and I even wonder why I chose it for the backing. But then, this quilt is a bit of a departure from my normal thing anyway.
Now this one was lots of fun to make. I was experimenting with deeper brighter colours. Certainly not much contrast on this quilt, now is there? It has the blue checked homespun backing. I had never used homespun for a backing but had alot of this because it was supposed to be curtains in the flag room in my last house. It never quite became curtains. I thought the depth of colour backing complemented the front of the quilt really well.
