Funny, isn't it? You will spend quite a bit of time picking and choosing all the various components necessary for the backround in each of your quilt blocks. The majorty of the time, after the main portion of the block is complete, you no longer "see" the background in itself. Since I did spend some time yesterday choosing and assembling a few background blocks, I thought they deserved a little recognition of their own. The one with the reds and blues was not actually chosen by me, but by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs for the second block of Night Before Christmas. The other two are the backgrounds for the two-part Block #5 of Rabbits Prefer Chocolate, again by Bunny Hill, with fabrics selected fromt the ones supplied in the kit from Bears Paw Fabrics.
