Better Pics of basket blocks

Ok I made new pics of the basket on the two background fabrics. There is no glare this time and the colors show better in the pic. At this point I am still undecided which I like the best. But I am trying to make my choice based on my moms likes also. Anyhow, here are the better pics. Made these this morning outside standing in the cold! Had to come back in and grab another cuppa to help warm me up. Here is the blue on blue........
And here is the blue on white with no glare...........
I am so in love with this basket quilt! I have enough novelty prints to do an "I Spy" baby quilt from a swap several years ago. I also have squares from another swap that represented each state that I have not put into a quilt that would also make a great baby size quilt that will most likely find themselves turned into little baskets.........after this project of course. I have been making a list for future quilts using these little baskets. My bucket list keeps growing!lol Thanks to all of you who have already commented below and a great big hug and thank you for those who are sending blue fabric my way. Well gotta run and cut out more baskets.

Almost forgot, during all the trauma in the previous months I missed my 200th post somehow. So I will be waiting until my 300th post to do some kind of drawing so stay tuned maybe it will not take long to make it to 300. Especially since I will be documenting my progress on moms quilt every week.

Happy Stitching,
Wendy

Hi Wendy,difficult. If it was my quilt I would use both and also more different whites for the background.
But you know, I like scrappy quilts.

Oh, Wendy! Now I feel bad for telling you there was a glare. White is just like that in a lot of pics.

I still think I like the blue on blue better just based on the pics. But I don't think it's a practical choice for your background, because some of the blues you use for baskets may not play well with this lighter blue. I think you are going to be better off with the white for a lot of reasons.

Congrats on your 200th. My next post will only be 100, and I'm almost at the one year mark. I want to do a giveaway, but have no clue what to giveaway.

I can see why you're having trouble choosing which one to make, Wendy, as they're both nice! Martine has a great solution, doesn't she? That'd be my vote too.
