This will be our first class project when we return in the fall. I found making the background all one color created a more contemporary quilt, and of course is faster. For those who do not know, a traditional tessellation would have another color in the background so that each block intersects with each other. Blue is my second favorite color. It is very calming, and reminds us of the ocean and the sky, both very calming to look at. While my background appears grey, it is black and white. Hopefully when I post the completed top with its border, you can see the crispness of the background. Did you know financial institutions use blue in their advertisements as it also represents stability and trust? Now those are two words I'm not sure I would associate with the banks of today. Happy Quilting!
