Even the one next to it with the with, then pink and blue fabric I have not seen before either. And I never seen the blue one in the middle before either.
    Please correct me if I am wrong, but this is what I have seen in the stores and also on the fields at events.
    Enjoy your project.

    Initial Audition Fabrics

    Reserving the right to change these but I am thinking:

    Blueish - Ts
    Brown and Pink - Star
    Burgundy blueish - Shoo

    All with teaish backgrounds.

    Here's my first stab at fabrics. The farthest right is dull green; the left is rust; the others are brown. Looking for some plum or maybe more green.


    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Evie-- Does the print in the third stack feel CW? Let me know if I need to find something else or go shopping! --I think this really feels CW!

    After going through my stash, I realized I don't have a lot of prints that will work in the quantity needed, so I ordered a bunch online today. Will post pics when they arrive.

    The top blue on stack 1 is a little brighter than it looks, more a "cadet" blue with navy print. The dark in stack 2 is really a dark brown with (either) a darker brown or black print. The "white" on the third stack is actually a tan. I guess the camera's flash whitened it a bit. Does the print in the third stack feel CW? Let me know if I need to find something else or go shopping!
    Evie, as long as the 'white' in the third stack is tan, your color choices are perfect. I love the sets you put together.
