Now, I can concentrate on bebe quilt number three!
Sunday, I sorted all the feedsacks and vintage cottons by color so I could get a sense of possibilities
In keeping with our gender neutral color scheme (so as to have it finished before bebe arrives), we thought about purple. Not the largest pile after the sorting, but enough, I think.
If we could find out the bebe's gender in the next week or so (and if it were to be a girl) we could consider this group! I love the bubble gum pinks!
My favorite fabrics are feedsacks because they are so sturdy and nearly always have been pre-washed. (I guess if a feedsack wasn't washed promptly after the "feed" was removed, it would probably be eaten by bugs, so the "unwashed" probably wouldn't survive!)
I think this is the group that we will use. Lots of prints and a couple pieces of yardage that could probably work for the back, if DS decides to use something besides flour sacks. Blue, but not bebe boy blue, so I think it still fills the neutrality requirement.
The design is by Nancy Page and was a serial published as a block a week in the newspaper in 1935. All the designs in the series are really cute. It will be difficult to narrow it to just twelve that I will need for this project. Anyway, I was so happy to be able to start right in. Thanks Martha, for sharing with me!
