I really wanted to mount these 43" long color palette strips on black. But I'm trying to lighten up, so I am forcing myself to work with this fabulous Kona bone cotton. Only two of palette strips have their white sides actually sewn on. But I am loving how all the colors are popping in contrast to the light background. After being so up in the air about what to do with these great color palette strips, I'm glad to have finally seen the light.
