These fabrics are the results of my run out to quiltfabric.com in Willowbrook. Left: a batik with more blue than black. Next: another batik but with more black (these are very similar fabrics. Next: a blue-black mottled fabric that is very rich. On the right is a pure black fabric. So now the issue is which one Christopher will prefer. My goal is for Chris to make a decision about which fabric without driving from Evanston to LaGrange. However,it's so hard to tell from photos.
This second picture shows all three of these fabrics next to an edge of the quilt banded on both the top and bottom with black. But it's hard to tell. Clicking on any of these photos will enhance the details.
I've had a good day of sewing and almost feel as if I'm back in the saddle again. Thus, the song title!
