This one uses the fabric from Dandelion Girl by Fig Tree Quilts.
If you want to choose all your own fabric I would suggest choosing a fabric with a print that has several colors that you love. You can pick it to match the room where the quilt will go or use your favorite colors. You will make sure all your fabrics coordinate with this fabric. For example:
When this fabric was chosen it was for a block swap with friends. We each made blocks and chose this fabric to use as the central fabric. We could choose any fabric that coordinated with this one. In addition to the brown we used fabrics in the red, green and blue. Most people used cream as a background color.
This is the finished quilt. The main fabric was used in the outer border.
This piece was used in one that I will hopefully get quilted and bound in the next few days. If you were using this fabric as your central piece in addition to other oranges you could use the teal, green, brown and white colors to find fabrics that coordinate. I will post the quilt to this in the next few days so stay tuned!
Now you know a little bit about choosing fabric. If you need help feel free to give me a call. Remember, the first class is Wednesday February 18 at 7pm at the church!
