Star Surround Quilt-A-Long

I've bought the fabric and now I'm blogging so it's official! I am participating in the Star Surround Quilt-A-Long organized and hosted by Melissa at Happy Quilting. Yay!

The fabrics I chose for this quilt is from the Hand Drawn Garden line by Anna Maria Horner. I got a great fat quarter bundle from West Wood Acres on Etsy.

Isn't it gorgeous!?!? Here is a sample of what the finished quilt will look like...

You can find out other layouts and fabric requirements. Intrepid Thread is also selling bundles specifically for this pattern with a coupon code! Go to Happy Quilting's blog post here to get all the details.

Since I am also participating in the Swoon 2013 quilt-a-long and that is also a large star pattern, I want to make sure this one is very different looking. With that said, I don't want to use a white background fabric, but I just can't decide what background fabric I do want. Humph! I'm leaning towards a grey/charcoal or one of the solid colors in the bundle. What do y'all think? Any input would be awesome! Maybe I'll take some audition pictures and post.

Have a great sewing weekend!
