A few days ago, I mentioned that I would be making a baby quilt soon. I have been waiting to see what color(s) they painted the baby's room.
Well, it has been painted orange and white! What a refreshing idea!
However, orange and white both are the LEAST represented colors in my stash. I have only a few pieces of each.
So, in spite of my pledge not to buy more fabric, it looks like I have no choice. I might get one piece of each color from my friend in Florida, but I may have to reluctantly visit my favorite neighborhood fabric store.
I haven't decided what pattern I will use, but I love making bargellos, and so it will probably be some form of a mini-bargello. I hope I can find some novelty fabric with those colors, so I can fussy-cut some pictures in the bargello strips.....and put some pictures in the border.
My very favorite part of making a quilt is auditioning and choosing the fabrics, so I am happy to be starting the project now. The baby is due in early June, so I hope to have it finished by then.
