    This is what I put together while watching Mare Stare.
    It's the Yellow Brick Road pattern.
    I wished the color came out better.
    The color is actually a dusty rose/mauve.
    It's a baby quilt for some friends of ours.

    I fell in love with this fabric, but could only find the 3 prints. I found what you see in the little border, and that will also be the backing. There are colors in that which match the rosey color.

    Here you can see almost the actual color. The border will also be the backing.

    Thanks Joyce.
    You can see a little bit of the print with the rocking horses on it. I just thought that fabric was waaay too cute! Found the other 2 matching, but couldn't find anything else to go with it. When I found the blue....I was a little upset because I KNEW that there HAD to be a "pink" one to go with it. The balloons and the dress on the little girl match the rosey/mauve color, so I decided to go with that.

    Thanks all. I'm thinking I am going to tie it, just to "stay" with the theme of the fabric. The fabric is old fashioned looking, so I figured it I tied it, that would keep it in the old fashion sense. Make sense to anyone?
