And thirdly...success!

"Rick Rack Road" has languished since the failure of this fabric below to marry with the many purples and greens in my pieced rows. But I found a replacement at my LQS...

Check this out! It is totally a fabric I would never ordinarily go towards, not being a big florals fan, but it has the right background tone and all the soft purples and greens. What a difference! I saw the fabric first on the bolt but only brought home a fat quarter to test it out.
Summer is over so it will have to be my summer quilt for next year, but I'm glad to have found a light print that blends so well with the scrappy look of my rows. It was worth the search!
