Shades of Grey Ragg Tagg from Fat Quarter Shop

Eventually I want to make a quilt to honor my baby's eye color.

His eyes are blue/gray. Cool, eh?

This fabric from Michael Miller would work.

Here is a custom set from fabricworm. I'm liking all the gray!


This blue polka dot is a must-have! So sweet and perfect for commemorating a baby boy!blue

Now my dilemma is finding the right pattern! Any suggestions for a quilt pattern? Needs to be beginner friendly, and probably more on the modern-ish side. If you know of a pattern that would work, leave it in the comments!

Linking up to QuiltStory, thanks for the inspiration to look into my fabric selections today!

Linking up here, I finally quit procrastinating and wrote a new post, despite all the sickness in our house. Now I need to quit procrastinating and finish some blocks on a quilt I'm working on! Yikes.

  1. Absolutely love the blue and grays combos, Michael Miller has such great fabrics in that colorway! I'd love to see it!! Pattern...hmmm so many great tutorials out there. I just did a coin quilt tute that would be really cute/modern (just leave off the flowers!) Cluck cluck sew has some good patterns too. Good luck! We're following now too :)

  2. I'm not a quilter so I have know idea of a good pattern to use, but with those beautiful fabrics, you really can't go wrong.


  3. Nice selection! Something pretty simple would be to take two favorite prints, cut into squares and then border each square with polkadots, then put a border around the whole thing-maybe the stripes. There are a lot of options-have fun!

  4. I'm loving the fabrics you are looking at - each one is really great. Thanks for visiting Redo 101 and commenting on the bathroom redo - just visiting back to say hello!
