Dreamin & Scheming

aka... I should be doing something else...LOL. I guess fabric selection is one of my favorite parts of the process. Here's what I've pulled for Judy L's BOM.The stripe is the inspiration fabric.... I might use a bit of it in the outer border but I know Judy mentioned this pattern is not suitable for directionals. The light gold print will be for the setting triangles area, *a* darker gold (not enough of that one in my stash) will be the sashing & borders, the greens will be in the blocks. The reds and blue will add the pop to the blocks and possibly sashing. My only dilemma is which background to use. Above is my first choice... an oatmeal color print that blends nicely with the stripe fabric. Below is a lighter cream on cream that gives more contrast but still works. I have time to mull that one around. Let me know your thoughts.

Oh, I like those! My background preference is #1 but I'd solicit Judy's opinion!

Hi Karen
I like the second choice of background fabric the most. It seems to bring the other colours to life more. I love your stripe - it would be great in a border but if that wont work maybe you can work little bits into some of the blocks.
