I finally settled on a fabric for the vase. This does still look a little busy in the picture but goes well with my other 2 blocks. I like busy and scrappy!
This was my orignal fabric choice for the vase but it felt just a little too "light".
This was my second choice because I really really like this fabric! Again it did not feel balanced and needed a little grounding.
Lesson learned...you can always use a favorite fabric somewhere else but go with that which makes the block "work"! Now to the stitching.
