Here is Robin's Town Square quilt that she was working on at the last guild retreat. I was over at her place a few weeks ago and she showed me all her quilts top that are ready to be quilted....all 17!!! So she said I could pick which one I wanted to quilt for her next as she had her name on my February list. Yet another example of how I have the 'bestest' clients in the world! Yes I know 'bestest' is not a word but I'm using it anyway because they are better than best ;P
So I picked this one...I love brown and blue.
The blue outer border and the lighter print square have a print that reminds me of ripples from raindrops on water. So I chose the "Curlz" panto as it has a swirly water feel.
I think picking out the fabric for your backings is just as important as the fabrics you chose for the tops. Here is a perfect example of a well chosen backing that just flows with the quilt top. When this quilt is on a bed and turned down when about to be used it will look so nice. I have made a few bad backing choices in the past that have really taken away from the quilt top so now I try my best to not buy the 'cheapest that will do' but the 'cheapest that looks the best.' :)
LOL... I just realized these are the colors of my website, no wonder I picked this quilt. :)
