Design Wall Monday: Phillip Jacobs Roses!

There is really nothing on my design wall, because I have a queen sized backing I need to make today…  But if there were, it would be this.  I totally love this rose fabric, and have been hoarding saving it for something special.  Now I’m thinking about using it for a baby quilt for the impending (August) great niece.  I just happen to also have these fabrics in stash:  Kona cream, Basic Grey Grunge, and something called Krystal from Michael Miller.

Here are a couple of options I’m playing around with (if I were spending time on this).  The plain sashing mimics Elephant a little more, but I really like the print sashing (which would not look purply like this, much more pink).  I’m thinking.  What do you think?

What’s on your design wall today?

I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday on Patchwork Times.

  1. Congratulations on 100 log blog posts. I really enjoy reading them, hearing your thoughts, seeing what you’re doing. My opinion for heavenly roses quilt.? I’m a fan of pink sashing idea, but either will be very special. Btw I also dread making backings, the bigger the worse!
