I'd decided that best way to show off the rest of that novelty print I used for the rice bag would be to use it as a wide border on a simple little quilt. I was thinking "chalkboard" and wanted black to be the dominant color, then I saw an Irish Chain quilt with a black background and decided that I wanted that.
Now the center is pieced and I'm not so sure. It's not a bad little quilt, but it might not be the best choice for this project.
If I had more of this mottled black print to play with, it would be an easier decision to make.
