So I am sure by now, you have all seen the Blogger's Choice Bundles that have been popping up everywhere for the Quokka Quilts challenge. When I saw it come up I figured it would be the perfect thing to get me thinking about really picking out some colors for my new Master King size quilt. And I mean, come on, If I won the fabric for my bedspread all the better right :) (Not that I think I have any chance of winning, there are some amazing color mosiacs over there, I feel sorry for those poor judges, tee hee hee)
So, I stopped and thought, and pondered, and started looking at color swatches. I found so many ideas that I loved. And then I talked to my husband (Since it is his bed too I figured he should get some input) and after some debate (he drives a tuff bargin) we came to the decision that we wanted something calming, relaxing, and in his words, no "girly" stuff. I later clarified that "girly" stuff includes anything in any tone of pink, red, or purple and also includes any prints that have any form of a flower on them. Which from my original color ideas left me with one option of a nice combination of earthy tones in the green tones of our walls.
So off to the Fat Quarter Shop I went to look for some fabrics that fit the "rules". I went through every single fabric in the shop. (Ya, it was so much fun!!!!!) I can't believe how many great prints I had to "throw out" because they had flowers. It is a little harder to shop for strictly masculine prints :) But in the end, I was super happy with what I ended up with. And here it is :) What do you think??? Is it calming and relaxing?? Is it masculine and in no way girly??
