Dutch Fabric Quilt

I've been looking through my old quilting magazines and books to get an idea of what I want to do with my Dutch fabrics. I think I've decided to do something with this block . I'm thinking maybe 4 of these blocks set diagonally and then work out from there to make a medallion quilt.

I'm not quite sure what to do with the background though. I feel very comfortable with using white or off white for backgrounds - kind of like all the white walls in my house! I love to see color on walls and in quilts that people use, but when I use it - I feel it doesn't look right. It reminds me when we lived in Colorado and I decided to paint the bedroom a lovely shade of green, well the bedroom looked like it had toothpaste thrown all over the walls! Needless to say - we repainted it white!

Haha I forgot about that AWFUL paint! It really did look like sponged on toothpaste! But very pretty pattern!

Love, Krisi

I bet a white or cream would be perfect for the background. The dutch chintz is so bold and colourful that you don't need much more colour.

That will be a great pattern. I bet it will be lovely.
