I never realized how directional fabric could be an issue until tonight. My problem is that after I cut the selvage off this very festive fabric, I was left with 40 inches. The quilt will measure 50 or there about's width wise and 60 length wise. That means I need to connect pieces. I tried kind of turning some of it this way and that to see if that helps. I am still not sold that the customer is going to just LOVE THIS, so I sent three different photos. Praying it looks better in the morning, otherwise we might be trying to find a top fabric that matches the backing.
