One of the things I've been most excited to make for our baby, whether it was going to be a girl or a boy, was a quilt! I've been looking at fabric and planning what I'd use if it was a boy, and what I'd use if it was a girl since I got pregnant...okay maybe even before then :) Finding the perfect boy fabric was tough for me, I'm kind of picky when it comes to boy style/fabric/clothing, and don't like anything too cartoony or sterotypical (vehicles, sports, etc.) I thought I'd decided on this fabric line, and I still like it a lot...but then I saw this collection and fell in love:
It's called "Constellations" by the designer, Lizzy House. I think it's perfect! It comes in three "color schemes", but they can all go together too. Now I just have to decide which colors I want to go with. It's pretty much down to the outer two stacks. I'm not too keen on the yellow and mint/turquoise shade in the middle row, but I do like the second from the bottom in that stack.
The stack on the right is the one that jumped out at me the most. I like the brighter shades of blue that this one uses, but I'm not too sure about the purple. Depending on what pictures you look at on different websites, it either looks very purple, or mostly blue.
I also like the look of the stack on the left. Luckily I've found a seller on Etsy who will let me mix and match to create a custom bundle! Now I just have to decide which 9 to go with, and I would really like to know what you think (hint, hint, leave me a comment)!!
So, on to the quilt pattern.. this is what I've chosen. It's simpler than I'd planned on (check out my Quilts pinterest board to see some others I thought about), but I kind of like that about it. Believe it or not, it took me a while to realize that it basically looks exactly like the triangle prints in the fabric I've chosen!
So, depending on which fabrics I choose, the quilt will turn out looking a lot like one of these:
So seriously, what do you think?
