    Quilt for my husband- Imaginations needed!

    OK here is the challenge. Below is a snapshot of my newly painted bedroom. (Hence the mess) What I need from you, is a specific precut (any type, jelly roll, layer cake ect), and a specific pattern for a queen size quilt that would suit a man in his late 20's, but still pretty enough to sit on our bed. It must match/coordinate with the walls in the picture! I am having serious trouble figuring out what to do with this one! Thanks all!

    How about a Jacob's Ladder? Check out the tutorial Jenny from the Missouri Star company has on youtube. I'm pretty sure she uses precuts.

    D9P would look nice. Or a trip around the world.

    Both would work- any ideas for a specific batch of colors/pre cuts? I am really having trouble with that part.

    Green cream with a splash of purple. Jelly roll or charm pack.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    What about a two color quilt like a double irish chain or tree of life pattern?

    Quilter2theend- what is a tree of life pattern? I googled it and came up with a bunch of different ones. Can you link one that you were talking about?

    I made a Pickle quilt for my son and his wife.... all greens and browns. I paper pieced a brown bear and placed it in the middle. It really was nice!

    Take a sample of the paint color, and go fabric shopping! LOL!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
