I just had to cut out a background square and make a center circle to be appliqued to one of my Dresden Plate blocks. Sure, I know, I have only made three out of the twelve "plates" so far, but I love to have a finished Inspiration Block to cheer me on while I complete the others. I got the blades and the circle prepped and pinned to my background before something unfortunate came to my attention.
This is what I need help with---My background fabric is a lovely pale cream that was part of a Fig Tree collection. Actually, it was in several Fig Tree collections. It is the perfect cream, verging on the palest of yellows. Well, I don't have enough for my block backgrounds, lattices and border for this Dresden Plate quilt. That's ok, I can substitute something else. No harm, no foul, I haven't actually cut out more than just the one background square and nothing is sewn down yet.
Hopefully, there is a Fig Tree Fanatic out there who can advise me. Is there a Moda Bella Solid that is a dupe for the Fig Tree creamy yellow? There actually is a solid in the Moda Bella line called Fig Tree Cream. Do you think that is what I have there? I can still order it and the whole thing will just be too good to be true.
