I cut the 2.5" squares from batik scraps I had and a few strips from a jelly roll. Can't decide on whether to go with light or dark backgroud.
In my humble opinion, I think the dark makes them pop more. I love it on the dark.
I love the dark too. Very classy looking.
why not do both?
I prefer the Dark, Squares are popping more!
I prefer the dark as well.
I like them both...I would be tempted to make both of them...but, of course, that would depend upon how involved it is to put together those 628 squares.
I've started cutting Batiks also (gradually cutting from my 100 fat quarter pile) and was thinking about using black for a background.
I initally thought I'd go with the black, but I made 2 quilts recently with brights and black background. So if I can get a little more of the light green batik I'll go with that, so maybe both.
