My co-worker and her husband are expecting their first baby in the next few weeks. The nursery is yellow and gray, with painted chevrons on the walls. I managed to knit a sweater and hat in the proper colors, but drew a complete blank for a quilt. It was the gray that stumped me. Gray? For a baby?
Being reasonably intelligent, and able to swallow my pride, I posted my dilemma in the question and answer section on the QCA website. One lady suggested I look at the gray as silver. That was enough to nudge me out of my block, and off to the fabric store I went. Happily, there was a quilt show later that week to augment the first batch.
That silver really adds a nice touch, don't you think?
