Spots or Solid?

My kids have the flu and have kindly passed it on to me. They're super generous aren't they?

As a result my brain is fuzzy and my ability to decide anything, at all, has gone down the drain...

Help me decide on my block background - spots or solid?

I'm kind of leaning towards the spots... But maybe the solid works better... Argh. Help!





Which do you think works better?

  1. I like the spots but it also depends on if the block is going to be used on it's own for something or if it will be surrounded by other blocks, in a quilt for example, because the backing would have to suit that too.

  5. I think the solids look better. Your other fabrics already have a bunch of things going on.

    My kids have been generous with their germs lately too. We are lucky moms! At least you are finding time to do something productive!

  9. Well, I like the spots, but then again, I would probably alternate spots and solids if the applique is going to be put on separate square backgrounds.

    Oh I don't know, the spots looks really good too !
    If you have more than one, you could alternate the solid and the spots ?

    I know, it doesn't help !

  13. While I love the spots I think the solid works for the background here since the other fabrics are pretty busy.
    Hope you feel better soon!

  16. Not to add to the confusion - but my eye was more drawn to the one on the solid blue :)

  17. I like the idea of mixing the two backgrounds. The solids looks flat to me, but still pretty.

  24. I would use either. If I used the solid I would use a dense quilting pattern to showcase the plate. Get better soon. x

  26. Definitely the solid, though it was a tough choice. And I understand your germie pain. My little Sunshine has been sick since Saturday night and it has been a rough road. Feel better soon.

  28. Hope you feel better soon.
    I like the solid background. I think the spots make it look a little too busy.

  29. The solid showcases the beautiful work of the dresden plate and really makes it pop. Spots just blend all the work together. I'm just sayin'. . . .

  30. Solids. Definitely. Shows off your dresden better.
    So many different opinions! I guess this hasn't helped at all really has it?
    Hope you get better soon,
