Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions on the fabric choices I had selected for the Pillow Talk Swap. The previous photo didn't show the fabrics accurately, so they appeared more neutral than anything else. I did add a couple blue fabrics for that pop of color, though.
I'm pretty sure I've decided on a design so I made three log cabin blocks today. They measure about four and a half inches. I love these bikes.
I hope it all comes together the way I imagine it. I have something fun planned for the back, but I've never done anything like it before, so I hope it turns out. Most importantly, I hope my partner likes it. I've decided that it's hard to get a feel for someone's tastes just by looking at pictures they favorite on Flickr. Ah well, I'm sure everything will turn out fine. I'm sure I'm just stressing about it for no reason.
