Running water line for Refridgerator..

Hi... I have a quick question..

We are moving our refrigerator to an opposite wall during a kitchen remodel. I need to re-run the water line, and I have about 25 feet of 1/2 Pex left from a prior project... If I "T" off a 1/2 supply line and run the PEX up through the attic and down out behind the fridge, what is the easiest way to connect the 1/2" line to the 1/4" copper line required for the fridge?

Should I use a stop valve? And if so, what kind of connector can be used between the stop valve to get it down to the 1/4"?
