zigzag-ing along

i told you i wanted to start another quilt, and it had totally slipped my mind that there was a quilt along happening. it's for a zigzag, which is what i wanted to make next!

i decided to work on a quilt for one of the boys, inspired by their future room design. i had bought yardage of a deep brown my last shopping trip, knowing i wanted some kind of blue/brown zigzag. this is what i have so far:



















i don't know how i feel about the brown now though. i think i may leave it for another project. also, i'm afraid of how all solids will show stains. i love the idea, just not the reality. so i may have to throw in some prints, just for my sanity.

any advice for me? are the colors too girly? i was thinking beachy fisherman sandcastle builder...

i dont think the colors are girly, but i get what you are saying about solids showing stains. i have an eleven year old boy and....well....pretty gross sometimes. just sayin'.

I like the brown...at least it won't show stains, but I also understand about the solids! I don't think it is girly either...but you are asking us girls! ;)

Ok, my husband thought the colors were ok so I'm good there! But I still think I'll keep looking for prints. I really like the yellow, brown, and white together, maybe that will become a living room throw instead!

And why is it, one project always becomes two or three more??? craft ADD!
