    Default Idle time coloring

    I have this pattern called Surprisingly Red that is, obviously, in reds. :-) I want one in browns and blues for my living room. I have the fabric already and I'm chomping at the bit to work on it but I have two other quilts in the queue that I need to do as gifts.

    Just using MS Paint and picking up the colors of the fabrics to color in the major parts to see how it will look. I really like it!

    Love your color choices and envy your talent and bravery to do that beautiful pattern. I could only dream! I have a collection of browns and blues that I have gathered over a year that I want MY quilt made from. Pattern pending!
