the boy one has a (slightly obnoxious) turquoise blue fabric i found yards of thrifting awhile back. i am using it for the sashing, with a bright dot print for the centers. the dots are sort of getting lost in the cutting though - may have to rethink this. go with a smaller print.
the girl version has white sashing, and i am trying to avoid dark colors and keep it light and pretty. some of the prints are so precious, i've been collecting these for several years now and it's pretty liberating to finally begin using them! my kids don't really need more blankets, so these may become charity quilts or make their way into my etsy shop.
i've also been pulling fabrics for my do. good stitches blocks for september. grape, tangerine, gray, and white. yeah, not too many of those in my stash. so i stopped in my LQS today, and they were having their fall crawl shop hop! 10% off and prize drawings, hooray! tomorrow i will go to garnett to hit my other LQS, and see what they have going on.
