I’m such a sucker for pretty fabric. It’s my guilty pleasure. Some women read gossip magazines… I swoon over designer quilting cotton. =)
The fabric I ordered for Johnny’s new quilt finally came! I shared with you all some of my initial ideas for decorating his room in this blog post HERE. Initially, I was thinking a really dark peacock blue for the walls, but I just don’t have the guts for it. There is a pretty good chance we will be moving within a year, and I’m hesitant to paint the walls a color so bold that may not appeal to buyers.
I used one of the prints from this fabric line to select the paint colors. I decided to go with Monaluna’s Monaco line. My favorite was the Scooter print, so I used that as a guide for the colors.
The darker color on the left (Behr Premium Tucson Teal) will be for the walls. The middle color (Behr Premium Mermaid Treasure) will be for a bookcase/cubby thingy. The color on the right (Behr Lemon Grass) will be for the dresser.
Those main colors mixed with accents of dark brown & orange. Swoon. :)
I particularly love these two prints.
The pattern I’m using is the French Window Panes by Sweetjane. I wanted to use a pattern that would showcase the pretty fabric designs, and not be too intricate in the piecing as I am a newbie to quilting. I’ll probably do a solid color on the back instead of a print like this.
I hope to start cutting tonight! Wish me luck.
