Nice to see all the pictures of your starts. I'm struggling to find the right fabric for my piece.
I want to lightly paint the sky section of the fabric so it is different from the rest of the ground, but I can't find a fabric that I like the base color enough to use. I wan't something that will look good with the rose border, but will also look nice underneath the painted sky section. I'd love to use a green, but whoever heard of a green-blue sky? White is too stark for me, and I haven't yet found brown that I like, or that isn't too dark.
Part of the issue is that the fabric needed is so big. There aren't any stores near me that sell pieces large enough for this piece, and I don't like to order online for stuff like this, as the fabric in person can sometimes be very different from the online picture. It's a lot of money to spend on a piece of fabric I might never use.
Yesterday I tried tea and coffee dyeing some fabric I had in my stash, but the tea dye came out too red and the coffee dye didn't get dark enough.
I'll keep looking, and will be keeping an eye out on the colors you all are using on your pieces. Maybe something will inspire me!
Hoping to get started soon, otherwise I will be WAY behind...
