Thank you for being excited about the Maggie Quilt Pattern! I thought it would be helpful to share a little more about the version of the quilt on the cover and walk you through why this collection worked well here, to help you make decisions about your quilt.
I have been a big fan of Alexia Abegg's work ever since her Marcelle Medallion pattern (remember when everyone was making it?) so now when I get a chance to work with her fabrics, I am so excited! The Golden Hour collection is - no surprise - really beautiful and would work great in a variety of quilt patterns.
I wanted to use it in a pattern that would highlight my favorite print in the collection (the Mountain print, it is the neutral background fabric and the navy print used for the radiating star points). I am always on the lookout for prints that will work well mixed with other collection and that print fits the bill.
