    Re: Pattern for Floral jelly rolls

    Maybe Jennys Quatrefoil quilt. The fabric you have looks similar to the fabric she used, Fresh Lilac I think it was called.

    Re: background information

    This book 'Beyond Neutral' by John Q Adams is all about using anything but white as a background. Very inspiring and still lots of 'pop'!
