This quilt would look good sewn up in almost any fabric! Make sure that the two fabrics you select per block have some contrast. Also, make sure that the blocks contrast with the background fabric. If you are quilting this quilt on your home machine (rather than sending it out to a long arm quilter) you may be able to reduce the yardage of the backing fabric to 1 1/2 yards. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 42" x 48"
