I want to make a non-wearable piece, just a pretty bead and embroidery picture, and I'm having trouble deciding which fabric should be the background. I started out with a whole bunch of fabrics and narrowed down over a few hours.
The two contenders are both pieces of muslin that I free-style marbled years and years ago. As you can see, the one above is subtle and doesn't interfere with the focal pieces.
BUT, the other has more of the colors of the flowers in it, and seems to be a slightly better match, although it is a busier pattern. Which would you choose?
