I thought I wanted brown for the backing, but the brown in the top has a "red" tinge to it and it is old so it wasn't easy finding something. I think Bernice and I looked at every brown there was at The Village. Then we spied this blue with the exact brown in it. I only buy length and add for the width. On a long arm, length is really, really important.
It was approval, by the way!
I chose the pantograph "Woven" which is a Jodi Beamish design available at Willow Leaf Studio
The pattern is quick and it is easy and in the right colours you can do it for either a woman or a man and it is modern.
and I nearly forgot!
I used an OMNI-V thread for this one. It was the perfect blend of brown and blue for this quilt.
