    Re: Ophelia quilt question

    I bought this fabric for a quatrefoil quilt for my mother, work in progress. I have a cream linen looking background, deep red and green for the accent squares. I will post pics if I can ever get in finished, keep getting sidetracked, lol. I do like how it is looking.

    This is just beautiful! It really gives me a sense about how mine might look if I choose this pattern.

    I bought Ophelia to make a Prairie Flower quilt, but haven't started it yet. I also bought French Vanilla for the solid.

    Friendship star sashing quilt would work with this fabric also.

    Jenny did a tutorial of this fabric line. The tutorial was Under the stars. I ended up making a crib size. That fabric was perfect for it. I took a pic of it and uploaded it under my 2016 album if you want a looksee.

    The fabric is lovely and actually has nice "manly" / neutral colors. Maybe patterns like:

    Double Slice Layer Cake
    Alter Ego
    Disappearing Hour Glass

    Oh, there are so many that would go well with this fabric -- you can't really go wrong!
    You are so right... you can't go wrong. When I purchased that fabric, I was thinking along the same lines... that it would be something my husband would like.... and he does. I am going to go check out your suggestions.

    I would love to see a photo! I can't believe that two of you ladies did the same with the same fabric!

    I would love to see a photo of this, if possible. It sounds like you and I have similar tastes.

    I like either quatrefoil or the prarie flower.

    I really do like those colors! But, I also dig the story of Ophelia!
