One of the husband's cousins has "commissioned" me to make a quilt. After we went back and forth a bit about her color preferences and other aesthetics, we settled on the Houndstooth pattern from V & Co.I really love this pattern - it's a nice bold graphic, but I can see how with linen and white, or a softer color, it would be a mellow quilt as well - even soft and sweet for a baby.
She liked the colors blue, green and gray as she has three boys. I pulled a few I thought were nice from my stash. I also threw in a white and a linen since I think either would provide a nice neutral background and contrast with the colors.
I think a white/linen/light blue combination would be light and breezy and have a real beachy feel. The navy and a light background would be striking and bold. The greens would be very natural looking if paired with linen and white. There really is no bad combination in my opinion, just possibilities. What is your favorite?
