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 Apple Cider 14 Background
I really like this little overall prints! This one has a cream background with a slightly darker overall design of sprigs and leaves. This is the lighter color of two colorways. (*)

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!) (*)
