Ok....so this is our bedroom. My DH loves blue and by now you know that I love red! (And I absolutely love love love our wrought iron bed!) Do you know how hard it is to find a quilt that has both red and blue in it? Then try to find one with black accents. Almost impossible! I found this one at JC Penny 2 years back that had all my colors in it. It was never my favorite, but I figured at some point I'd stumble across one that I truly loved.......... Not so much as it turns out. I've had this crazy idea for the past few years that I could just make my own quilt. Sure.....why not? <----- insert hysterical laughter here.
So I've been trying to find fabrics that would work. Nothing really blew my skirt up. I did have a momentary infatuation with Sweetwater's new "Hometown" line but the blue is really more an aqua and although I really do love the more modern fabrics, I'm more romantic at heart, especially when it comes to our bedroom.
Then last week.....it happened! Totally out of the blue! Totally unexpected! I was looking online to find a good deal on a jelly roll I need for an upcoming project and I fell totally in love with Moda's "Shades of Blue"!
Creamy yellows, cozy shades of blue, dramatic black and hints of red! I had never even heard of it before! It must be an older print because it was hard to find it anywhere online. This one quilt shop had a jelly roll, layer cake, charm pack and some yardage. I didn't hesitate to buy it! Have you ever had an emotional response to fabric? No?....just me then :) I can't believe that I found fabric that makes me sooooo happy! I can already picture it on my bed!
Now if I could just decide on a pattern..........
