I've got the blues - and browns -again. As in I am getting ready to start another quilt with those colors. A co-worker of my hubby is getting married in mid-July and I thought that a lap quilt (with a pair of matching pillowcases) would be nice to make for them (just wish I had known a bit sooner)... I checked their registry at Linens and Things and they have tan sheets, chocolate brown blankets and a blue throw listed.
Since I already have lots of brown binding (still) - I can run with those colors easily. I don't want a repeat of Joe's quilt pattern - and continuing on my quest to try new patterns when I can - I decided to go with this one. I really liked the blues I used in Joe's quilt, so I will pick those same fabrics up again, and I have lots of tans/creams/browns in my scrap bin, so I can run with those for the scrappy patches. I think a cream thin middle border, and perhaps a lighter almost wedgewood blue for the inner border would really make it all pop nicely with their color scheme.
Awww -that means I need to go fabric shopping tomorrow - drat.... (hee hee!!!)
