It's so subLIME

I spent the day today at my mom's sewing. I finally went back to working on my purple and lime wall hanging. It took about 8 hours but I've finally got it ready to assemble. I had to finish up the border pieces today and I made the corners. Now that I've laid it out on the fabric that I chose for the background I don't like it. I think it needs to be on black. This week I'll have to go out and get some. I'm thinking of a marble or mottled black, something similar to the black in my Friday Night Block of the Month quilt. The green just doesn't make it pop and I think the black will do that.

I must have moved while taking the picture because it came out kind of blurry. So, what do you guys think? Black Background instead?

Wow! I just don't know what to say, that is beautiful. Looks like something right out of the books...Don't know about the background, you're the expert!!! Great Job!
I've been waiting for you to start working on this again, I love it...

I love it. It's so me. If you can't find a place for it just think of your friend across the water. LOL

How about a very deep purple.maybe a Moda. It might not be as harsh as black and will fit in with the purple you've used.

I would love to see it against the black. I do think it would make the colors pop more. Boy, that is a beauty! Rhoda

Wow! That is Gorgeous! I'm thinking a dark purple bali or something like that or a mottled black might work. Definately something dark and you can't go wrong. Catching up on my comments. That's a bummer about your neighbors. I probably would have said " Let's see if the police want to go though the garbage and see who's it is." Hope your back gets to feeling better soon. Ran a 5K yesterday - I don't run - with my daughter and messed up my leg :0( Ouch! Love your dogs purse and her bandana, they're really cute :0)

Let me start out by saying I've seen this wall hanging in person and even pictures just don't do it justice, it's fantastic. The background piece just doesn't do a thing for it so I'm with Jen and I'd like to see it sitting on a piece of black to see if that makes it pop.
