First of all - do you like the new look?? I'm loving this color scheme of orange and blue right now. But I change my mind often, so don't be surprised if it looks different again in a few weeks. :-)
I need to get my brain into boy mode. For my whole life, I've never need to think in terms of boy colors or boyish things - and now that we're having a BOY I need to forget the pinks and purples and figure out how to decorate for my little man.
One of the first things I want to make for this guy is a quilt. I have never made a quilt, but have done a bit of sewing in my day, and I have found some patterns that look super quick and easy (which is exactly what I need). I have been looking through fabrics to find some boyish colors and I'm LOVING the grey, orange, aqua color scheme. So - rough draft, here are some fabric options.
It is hard to find non-girly patterns. There is a lot of paisley, floral, and just cutesy stuff. It is pretty much polka-dots and animals for boys. I'll have to keep looking, but I am liking this color scheme for a quilt. We'll see!! But I'll have to get working on it soon, I think!! :-)
