Who Said Backgrounds Have to Be Plain?

This is “News Worthy” in more ways than one:

At Spring Market, I noticed a lot of samples that featured backgrounds with words, numbers, texts, and newsprint.  New books flaunt REALLY CUTE patterns that utilize small black and white print fabrics — of either small graphic prints or word and numbers and newsprint, oh my! — as background fabrics.  Using something other than a plain or tonal background gives the whole project punch.  Check out these pics and projects  from three great new books:  A Quilter’s Mixology by Angela Pingel, Wild Blooms and Colorful Creatures by Wendy Williams, and Vintage Quilt Revival by Katie Clark Blakesley, Lee Heinrich, and Faith Jones.  The cool textual dress was an exhibit at Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh.
