I've mentioned before that I am taking Rachel @ Stitched in Color's Penny Sampler class. I am a little ashamed to say that I haven't even started the Penny Sampler blocks yet (yup, slacker, I know). Our first applique practice project is the Dogwood Blossoms quilt. Since I've had Madrona Road sitting (...languishing...) in my stash since I became interested in quilting, I decided that it would be the perfect line to use for this project

Now I need your help deciding on a background print. I got the spots at the expensive LQS in my area. It's hard to see but it's more of a warm gray. The solid on the right is Kona Iron. I'm leaning toward the print, but if I use the print I have no idea what I will use for sashing. If I use the Kona Iron, I can use one of the gray prints from the Madrona Road line as sashing... What do you think?
