The quilt is from material I bought about 5 years ago at a local LQS. It was on sale and I loved the colors. They reminded me of prairies. Heather green, a subdued gold and some brick red. Later I found out that most of the fabrics I picked out were Daiwabo prints!
I'm making a quilt that Janet Wickell designed on her about.com quilting site. It is alternating snowball blocks with economy blocks. It makes a beautiful lattice with the squares in the corners of each block. I saw the pattern about 2 years ago and knew immediately it was perfect for my "prairie" quilt.
I just made an audition Economy block to make sure the colors went together well. And ta-da! They did! Very exciting!
