It may not surprise you that from all those options, those few blue/teal fabrics caught my eye. I've been looking for the perfect recoloring for Starlight Plaid for some time.
The original quilt in greys and red was very bold. These fabrics make a softer version. You can see how the prints blend a bit to soften the edges in this close-up.
Trying to do justice to the whole collection, I went back to the oranges, which made me think of fall, which led me to Leafy Pathways. A customer at the local quilt shop once told me every quilt needs a "party girl" fabric, a fabric that sticks out just a little to liven up everything else up. I think the pop of teal fits the bill.
The prints add a lot of texture and interest to a simple design.
Finally, because I gave the teals a quilt all their own in Starlight Plaid, I thought I'd try to give the rest of the colors a quilt all their own as well. Here is Connecting Geese, reimagined with a light background instead of the original dark.
The colours in the collection are strong, as you saw in Leafy Pathways. Pairing them with a light background gives them a lighter touch.
