    oooo I went to look that up and I love it! Never thought about if they made solids. I'm making this for me so I'm going to look real hard at his solids. Thanks!

      These shot cottons are woven with one color in the warp and another color in the weft. So it gives a different effect depending on the angle. Not a flat solid at all, which is why I like them with the Kaffe prints.

        Lorie, here's one of the Kaffe solids and it's on sale. They are all pretty! The shot cottons Midge mentioned would look great.

            I like the shot cottons, too. How about the ice?

              Oh the Ice is so pretty! I haven't seen that one in person. I do have a piece of the color Dill which would look great with the JR also. Looks like fabric.com doesn't have it, but Liza Prior Lucy has it on her site.

                What a pretty color. That might match my Caribbean JR better. Now I have to decide which one to use!

                  I find the contrast with white too much with KF -- I did one, and it just isn't my favorite quilt. If I was doing it again, I would go with grey!
