Which fabrics give movement without making the overall look too busy? Which colors add to the mood of the images which are already dark in color? I like to be spontaneous with my selections, but with this project I feel I have to weigh each choice to make sure it adds to, not takes away from, the finished project.  I am not usually so careful about my fabric decisions, but I am so excited about getting to use my own manipulated images printed with an ink jet printer directly on to cotton fabric.  Here are the first three (of 9) blocks; with one in closer up view. What do you think?
