Gray is hot . . . . .

Who would have thunk it but gray is the new hot color for baby's room.  Maybe because it lets all the accent colors pop.  Married One has chosen gray for the Sweet Baby Girl's room with accents of aqua, bright yellow and magenta.

Although she doesn't know which quilt pattern I chose or any of the fabrics, she rarely looks at my blog so I feel safe showing some of it.


She loves chevrons so I will be making a simple chevron pattern from half square triangles.  I spent last night cutting the squares, drawing my line from corner to corner and sewing down 1/4" on each side of the line.

Today was spent pressing.  (Along with a thorough spring cleaning of my bedroom ... only 6 months late).  This was the pile from this afternoon.  The 120 4-1/2" squares have been trimmed and I will spend the rest of the evening sewing them in to rows and the rows in to a quilt.

Better hurry ..... only 5 weeks left!!

Blessings, Cathi

My DD did her baby's room in turquoise, lime, orange & grey - things sure have changed through the years, huh? I like this color combo.

Too funny, today I cut out a baby quilt (braid) in grey, dusty pinks, burgs and blues for a baby girl...it is the rage!!!
Congrats on getting your spring cleaning done so early (not late!).
