Since I am not planning to include the flowers in my version of this quilt, I wanted a background fabric with some pattern to it, but not a really busy print. It's always hard to judge fabric colors on the computer, and photos on different websites showed wide variations in color. I was hoping for a light silvery grey, but I was a little afraid that this fabric might be too dark. However, I am very happy with the print and the colors in it. The fabric is Chromadots, a wide backing fabric from Blank Quilting. I got three yards, but am counting it as 7.5 yards because it is extra wide. You can see it here with my first few 9-patch blocks.
My usage for the week was 1/2 yard for two Scrappy Trips blocks and another 1/2 yard for more black Bowtie blocks to use in the border of my Rainbow Bowties quilt.
Used this week: 1 yards
Used year to date: 1 yards
Stashed this week: 7.5 yards
