Don't you love this tiled wall?!? This one would be relatively easy. All the HST's would be black and white. The small stripes would be intense brights, nearly neons. The palette would depend on the backing I choose. Do you know of any non-floral voiles? This print from the new Koi line is in voile, but the colors aren't quite "Matt." I think if I picked the cleaner, brighter hues of these colors it could work:
The second inspiration picture is a poster titled "How Very Tokyo." It's a designer's perception of the city on paper. I'm sort of in love with it.
Sourcing all those large text prints would be hard, but really fun! It might actually give me an excuse to use spoonflower. I bought a ton of that Ikea text script, and it would be pretty useful for this. But could I find enough text varieties to make it interesting? Maybe if I included more color...? This quilt would definitely be more expensive, but I don't mind if I'm making it for him. And neither will he! Haha.
Here's pic of that large ikea text print:
So what's your input? Any backing suggestions? Any ideas for text prints? I really want to make both of them!
