ISQ has become known for their background/neutral fabrics. It's because I'm a background junkie. I admit it. No doubt about it. I love them. I've got LOTS of them. (Seriously. LOTS!) .....And the sad part is that I want more! I truly believe that the right background will MAKE the quilt. You can choose to use one background or many when you make a scrap quilt. They're the unsung heroes of quilting fabrics!


P&B Baby Fabric
Isn't this a sweet background fabric for a baby quilt? This is another of my "finds" when I visited my distributor! I know this is a discontinued P&B fabric but I can't find the original fabric code for it. The background of this fabric is cream and the design of teddy bears, duckies, rocking horses, rattles and blocks are all in white. I might have to stash some of this away! (You just never know when you might need to make a baby quilt!) (*)

Apple Cider 15 Background
This is one of the newest of P&B's Apple Cider background fabrics. I think this one is going to chop up beautifully! I think this fabric will work with both reproduction fabrics and more contemporary prints because it's such a nice design. The background of this print is a rich cream color and the design itself is a warm tan.

Apple Cider 15 Background
Ooohhh! I like this fabric! It's kind of a twisty, turny, paisley, almost steampunk design! This looks kind of old fashioned but when you REALLY look at it -- maybe not so much! The background is a lighter cream color and the design is a warm tan.

P&B Apple Cider Background
Isn't this a nice little background print! It looks kind of old fashioned but I think it would work well with lots of different fabrics. The background of this print is a very light cream (or a creamy off-white?) with little tan sprigs.

Background Beauty
I found this fabric at one of my distributors and I'm not sure who manufactured it -- but I sure like it! It's a wonderful quality and the white-on-white design looks like dandelion heads blowing in the wind! I haven't had a chance to use it yet -- but I know some of it is going in my stash! This is a true white-on-white design and DOES NOT have a pink cast to it! (We put a red fabric behind it so that you could see the design more clearly.)

It's become hard to find some darker backgrounds these days but P&B has come through for us again! This tan background with the darker tan design is really pretty and I think it could be used in both reproduction and contemporary quilts. (At least that's how I've used it!)

OOohhhh! Isn't this a pretty background!!! I love the old-fashioned look of this fabric! The background is a slightly darker tan than the usual P&B backgrounds and to me the background gives it more of an "antiquey" look.

P&B just keeps producing wonderful background fabrics and this is just another example. I believe P&B has discontinued this fabric but I did find a bolt of it at my distributor's warehouse so I grabbed it! The background is a creamy tan with an overall darker tan design.

This was another great P&B find hiding at my distributor! There were two versions of this fabric and this is the slightly darker version. I love this little wallpaper design. It looks kind of old-fashioned but I've used it in several quilts and it works with almost anything.
