May Fabric Preview

I know I am a bit behind in my blocks but I have my fabric ready at least. So MH helped me decide on the fabric for our quilt (it is not just for me). So we want to quilt to go in our living room. We used this picture as our inspiration (we love natural things... very organic). This is a painting hanging in our dining room (same space as the living room).
With that in mind, DH picked the main fabric I will be using for the backing and the boarder. I am also thinking about making a couple blocks with this. Our lucky number is 8 so I want to make some extra blocks so we have 16 total (I get 11 from all of you so I only need to make 5 more... if it happens). We love the colors in this and how much it looks like the pebbles under water like the above image.
So everyone is getting some of the black and white pebbled fabric (on the bottom) and one of the colored fabric. Sorry this picture sucks but my camera has been acting up lately. So everyone will get either: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple. Please feel free to add any fabric you want that matches your color (pink with other pinks, etc).
So you know we like anything organic and earthy so go crazy. Please have fun with this. We are totally excited about this. Whatever you do we will love it. I can't wait to get started on my parts of this. Oh, and those I still owe squares to, they will be posted on here and then mailed out ASAP. I forgot them today when I went to the post office. Sorry! Thanks everyone!
