Quilt for Baby...

My SIL is pregnant with her second, and it's time for me to make another baby quilt. Kevin and I were at Joann's looking for home decor fabric for curtains (it was 60% off- but we couldn't find anything that we liked...) and I picked out some gorgeous fabrics for a quilt.

I probably should have picked a design first!

I'm have 4 colors for the front: pink, purple, blue, and green and the backing will be yellow. Kevin picked the yellow, but I thought it was just a bit too bright.

I need to figure out a design- anyone have any 4 color ideas? I was thinking about just making a basic 9 patches using pink-blue, pink-green, and blue-green and using the purple as a border for them all. The purple kind of has a different value then the rest (that is- when I take my contacts out, I can still see the pattern... the others it fades away) so I thought it might be too busy to mix in with the rest.

This weekend I'll scan the fabric into the computer and play with a photo editor to come up with some ideas. If I actually do that- maybe I'll post them to vote!

See some other fabrics too? The pink and black are for a purse for me. The fat quarter- just because it was the prettiest fabric ever. But they didn't have it in yardage. :(

Ohhhh fun!! I would love to be a quilter but I haven't made it that far yet. I am so excited to see how it comes out!

You are a busy girl with all the projects! I can't wait to see what you create with these fabrics. Linda is a quilter, so I'm sure she would have some ideas for you...as for me, I am not a quilter even though I wish I was :) Good luck
