I used a Hoffman floral, some of the scenic backing fabric which has horses, lots of green tone on tones and lots of blue tone on tones. To keep things casual I used some plaids and checks. I wanted a denim and green woods theme.
The backing is a scenic print with horses. Backing needs a good seam that is pressed open. The scenes run right along the selvage which I needed to trim off because I purposely have not washed this fabric. I do want some shrinkage to get a nice puckery effect but I don't want that selvage pulling up.
I decided to match the water ways more than the horses.
