Good job! You had a big challenge since the team worked three different shifts.

Your grid fabrics for this quilt are a good compliment to the book. These would sure make it quicker and easier for someone to do the designs in the book. The digitally produced grids eliminate the chance for measuring errors.

I would pick the Renfrew top. No matter what pattern the fabric will be hard to choose. khowardquilts

This is really cute. If this was set at mirror, it could look more continuous. With just a little cropping of the original image so there wasn't part of a tree on the edge it would flow from one repeat to another. I'm just an amateur designer on Spoonflower that stared out with edited photos, too. There is always something more to try. I use Paint.net, and GIMP mostly. I started with Picnik, but I like that I can set an image to 150 dpi at the start. SUMO is fun, too but it is set to 96 dpi.

I would choose the Secret Agent Trench Coat. I have no girls to sew for at this time. (khowardquilts)

I forgot my username when I commented the other day (khowardquilts). I just spent some time hunting up my Kona cotton charm squares. I finally found them. Kona cotton appears to have a lower thread count than the current quilting cotton, but may actually be the same weight as the treads appear a little coarser. Quilters like it because it hand quilts easier with the needle passing between the threads more freely. THE GOOD THING I SEE ABOUT IT FOR PRINTING IS IT APPEARS TO BE FREE OF THOSE LITTLE FUZZY SLUBS AND LINT THAT CAUSE WHITE SPOTS TO APPEAR ON THE PRINTED FABRIC, (but I can't be completely sure just looking a a couple of squares). The printers may stay cleaner if that is really the case. I have washed some of the 5 inch charm squares because I was using them with washed fabric. Shrinkage didn't seem much different than the other fabric. All cotton is going to relax back to its original shape.

Then my fabric would match the Kona charm squares I won a while ago! That would be great.
