Wine of the Day: The Winery at Olney - Montepulciano
My lovely coworker Kristen is pregnant with her third! Which of course means I am embarking on a new baby quilt adventure. She and her husband have decided not to find out the gender, so neutral palette it is. I decided on gray and yellow for a number of reasons. First, she told me she was thinking about painting the nursery a light gray. Second, I like gray and yellow together. Third, I thought I could make a mature baby palette out of these colors. Upon fabric selection I decided to include light tan as well to add interest while staying neutral.
I once again am making up the pattern as I go along. This will include 3 strips of 2"x6" fabrics in grays, yellows and tans with strips of a yellow/gray patterned fabric between and around.
I decided all of this and cut all my 2"x6" strips in the same day. Then, I laid it out how I wanted the colors to look. Clearly, Kahlua approved so now I can move forward.
Here is a close up of the fabrics so you can get a better sense of the patterns.
I do think the fabrics are mature for an infant quilt but I didn't want to go too baby or cartoony with this one. Also, I find that a lot of baby fabrics are not gender neutral so that eliminated a good deal for me. I think with the light yellow as the dominate fabric though, it will still give it a softer, babier feel to it. Thoughts?
Bria helping was a rare sight so I had to make sure I captured it! That's her hiding in the hole in the background. Actually, she is the most helpful because she stays out of the way!!!
(I think I made up a few words in this post, no judging)
