I originally had picked out traditional blues, but somehow these fabrics didn’t “speak” to me. When I saw this adorable fabric with the tools I just knew that this was a winner!
I love to pick a variety of patterns for my quilts. Since my focus fabric was a busy pattern I chose a simple stripe in medium tones. It is hard to see, but the white fabric has little white stars on it. I think that these fabrics compliment each other very well.
I am using the tool print fabric for the back of the quilt and a light blue border will complete it.
I like the simple pattern to allow the fabric to make a bold statement. Each fabric is allowed to shine, whereas a more complicated pattern would not allow your eyes to appreciate the prints I selected.
I will use a very basic quilting stitch so as not to take away from the prints on the fabric…mostly stitch in the ditch should do very nicely.
I am sooo happy I did not choose the expected “boy colors” for this quilt. I went into the store with one idea and happily left with something unexpected!!!!
