Baby Quilt... Driving Me Crazy
My head has been spinning, guys. I have a friend who's about to have a baby with his new fiance and I wanted to make them a quilt. I found out from another friend that the nursery's bathed in extremely neutral and colourless tones. The fiancee (edited, thanks to nerdpants Carly :P Hahahaha...) apparently hates the colour blue and only put a thin stripe of it in the nursery to appease everyone. Umm... Okaaaaay... I hope that baby doesn't end up being a dullard. I love bright colours for babies so this is a huge challenge.
Normally something pops into mind and it all just happens like magic. I have been pondering this baby quilt for DAYS. I don't work well with pastels and neutrals. Everytime I come to some kind of conclusion, I suddenly don't like it anymore and change my mind.
I've picked these solids and the yellow dot (yes there's blue but she's having a boy so she needs to just suck it up) and no pattern I come up with seems to fit. The Flock of Triangles by Denyse with the solids as the geese and the dot as the background looks like it might be it. It'll probably have the same effect as this quilt? But is there enough contrast??? SEE!?! In the time that it took me to type all that, I'm second guessing myself again!!!
I might have to take up drinking if this continues much longer.
