My second idea was to use yellow with very little design as the alternating blocks, since every lamb piece has some yellow in it,I thought it would brighten it up a bit, and maybe not look so.....blue and busy.....but now I think it looks a bit over whelming......like too bright!
However, I am going to make a border using these two fabrics and some of the backing fabric as well. I could use the backing fabric it's a dark smaller print with moons, stars and clouds. But I didn't want the front block fabric to be the same as the backing fabric, and I don't have enough of the light blue print for the entire back. I could piece the back using the yellow, dark blue and light blue fabrics, that could work.....I just don't know....if you have any ideas, I welcome them wholeheartedly. I am distraught, since this blanket has been in my head for years, and to find that it doesn't seem to be working out the way I thought it would is sad for me.
