This image shows what the final version might look like with the yellow sashing. I put some of the squares onto a folded section of the yellow flannel.
The other fabric I have for this project is black. To me the yellow is such a contrast that it looks a little too harsh.
I think I like it with an additional border of black. Once I get a couple of strips cut, I'll audition the blocks again.
These little animal characters are so well done. I also like that the printing includes upper and lower case letters. I've seen other panels with just upper case. It doesn't appeal to me as much.
So far, so good.
