It was also difficult to decide without seeing the fabrics in person. Unfortunately I don't have any great local shopping options. So I decided to pull out my very small solid fat quarter stash and "test" a few options before committing to the full quilt. I found a number of color combinations I liked, but not necessarily ones that gave the transparency effect. In the end, I tested the following color combo and liked it enough to buy more fabric to finish a quilt.
The colors are Kona Garnet, Terracotta, and Persimmon. I realize it doesn't have the same transparency effect as some of the other combinations, but I love this colors and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
I plan to use Garnet for the backing and binding so I don't spent to much time debating that decision. I have some Aurifil thread that matches the Garnet. I'm not sure about how I will quilt yet. Straight lines for sure as this is what I love but I might try some triangles? Not sure yet.
I have also purchased the fabric to make a purple version. Someday. And I may use this pattern to make a baby quilt.
The quilt is fun to make! You can find the details about how to make your own Quilting Jetgirl website. I am really glad I joined this quilt along!
