color trends: more options.

 Helen had it spot on... I had this quilt on my design wall, you know, the one I SAID would be the one that would live on my bed.. that it just might be the one!  (the one that has been staring at me all week on my wall, and I ran out of fabric for! oh yeah! that one!  I Gotta say, I love it!!! Now I better finish it! I have half of the top pieced... Just got the extra fabric in the mail... It goes together so quickly... I better just do it...
Well, after all that playing around, I made the bed up as I normally do with the blankets I use on it right now... The turquoise looks really good on it too! Dang it!    Although that's a queen size, I through it over my hubby's quilt because it's freezing in our bedroom, and hot everywhere else in our loft.. go figure!


Well, you all were right.. I will rotate them,  My Favorite is the African Fabric quilt. I think I will trim it down so I can still get that zigzag border on it... It really warms up the room...  I really adore the fabrics... And look! If you watch the color trends for FALL, Pantone has their colors for this year listed... My rug sums it all up!  Thanks for all your ideas yesterday!  I so appreciate you input!  I also want to get the brown gray and purple one done, and the top solids quilt... Good to cover all my options...  haha!
Lastly, just because it's very odd...and made us laugh....We came across this guy in the subway the other day.. his sign says,
"YOUR SMILE IS BEAUTIFUL!"

 Only in NYC... my friends... we see it all.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Ha!! I knew you would do that!! It does look great on your bed. You are a dynamo, can't believe it is almost done. Must be all that extra iron. It is your spinach, right? Love the subway guy!

  2. Girl, where do you keep all these quilts??? The solid looks really good - much more controlled look. I agree about the African, make it smaller and add the border interest. Thanks for the tour.

  3. I really love the turquoise quilt there. It also plays well with the rug. They make a great combo.

  4. Your quilts are all so beautiful! I can't decide which one I like best so I would rotate them (probably every day). I do adore the turquoise color and I love those African prints so much. Might have to add that to my shopping list for the next trip to The City. ...only in NY...

  5. Yesterday I came late to your post about choosing just one. I have to say the African fabric one just jumps out. They all look great but this one I keep coming back to, since some of the others you didn't want to risk with your dogs. (We have a black lab and would like to invite him up but he's huge and we only have a queen size so he has his own bed.) Anyway....it's wonderful you have so many beautiful choices and I love the idea of rotating them!

  7. The turquoise really does look good with the rug, but the one from the design wall looks pretty awesome.

  11. I like that one too! Oh my, they just look great! Now if you need someone to babysit the few that are queen sized....

  12. Dang! How could you choose? I love 'em all. So if it is cold in your bedroom, just use 'em all. That's what I do. But wait, I do love the napkin quilt. And I also really like the turquoise, but yet the African fabrics are oh so nice. Yup. just throw them all on the bed and snuggle!
