Oh, let me tell you...This quilt is super soft and SO fun to sit and look at (if you are crazy like me). I used natural colored muslin on the back which helped 'lighten' the quilt - I think I'm definitely a fan of muslin backing now. The solids have been sitting in my stash since Spring Break and I just couldn't figure out how to use them until this quilt. I was really scared that the burnt orange/red tumbler block would bleed BUT it didn't - phew! The solids are Moda and are, what's the word? luxurious! I used Michael Miller's 'painted canvas' in a bright lime which somehow works. Love it, love it, love it! This quilt is currently available in my shop.
