Pastel Trellis Quilt: Getting Started

Back when I first started designing my son's quilt, I decided that I wanted to make a softer, more feminine version. I went to my stash to see what I could come up with as far as prints that have, for the most part, one main color on a white or cream background in colors that were more me. From there, I matched each print with a solid that coordinated. I didn't have all the solids on hand so I had to do some shopping, but it really helped to have a Kona cotton solids color card on hand. Here is what I came up with.
These colors and the combination of them are very much to my liking. This pretty pile has been stowed away for about nine months and I've been dying to get started on this project. Hopefully it doesn't take me as long to finish this quilt as it did to finish my son's.
