Stop me before I use white again

I’ve finished the four rings of petals for the lovely Bloom quilt, and I am so in love. These were seriously addictive to make, and came together really easily (once I remembered to use my 1/4 inch foot, idiot that I am). I’ve used a mix of Denyse Schmidt fabrics with Flea Market Fancy, Hope Valley, Sugar Creek, Aunt Edna, Daisy Mae and even some Katie Jump Rope. Did I mention that I love it?

it’s 40 inches across!

Now on to background choices. Because this is for my (king size) bed I am thinking that a sheet is the way to go, rather than breaking the bank with quilting cottons. Maybe in a really pale grey or blue. I’m really going to try to avoid using my usual white. I fancy a change, although I am pretty sure I’ll chicken out when it comes down to it. I am also toying with the idea of handquilting, mainly because of the impossibility of wrestling with the enormousness. We’ll see.
