picking and choosing

I haven't done any sewing since the middle of the week, but with all the laundry I was doing yesterday, I thought it would be a good time to throw in the background fabric for my fans. I originally thought I'd go with a crisp white-on-white, but once I put it next to the white/red floral border fabric and laid the fans out, it just wasn't right.. the background of the floral isn't as white as I thought it was. Thankfully I had this muslin-ish cream in my stash, and with the addition of a deep pink inner border, I think I found a good solution. Still ultra happy that I won't need to buy anything for this quilt. It's surprisingly simple how easy it is to use what you have once you set your mind to it.
