i saw this quilt on Flying Bird's blog and i instantly feel in love with the back ground fabric. (image source here)
i went to ikea's website and it's not available for online purchase (guess they really don't want my money) and i'm just not going to drive to downtown atlanta to get it...our ikea is not easy to find.
but i do have this fabric in my stash (penny for scale)....it will basically give the same effect- a very large scale B&W. plus i won't have to worry about keeping it directional
