This is my first post here, although I've been reading for months. Since I'm relatively new to quilting...here's my question for you "seasoned" sewers out there:
Do you pick your fabrics first and then find a pattern, OR choose a pattern and then shop for fabrics?
I have always had a pattern and then chose fabrics. My current project (twin size bed spread for my daughter) is the reverse, and I'M STUMPED as to what to do with 4 solids and one print. My daughter picked the solids (she refused to even look at prints!), & I managed to find a print the went with all of them.
Do I keep searching for a pattern or start over buying fabrics, and put these in my stash?

4 solids & one print - now I need a pattern!
