    The new PURE fabric line

    I loved the new pure fabric line when I saw it. I bought a charm pack and started laying it all out. But as I started laying out the charms I started to wonder if this line was a little girly. Yes I know the colors are blue and brown but some of the charms may be to girly. They sell the charms here so I was wanting some feed back from my quilting gals. Do you think its to girly for a boy quilt or do you think its not. Be honest I can handle bad opinoins, lol.

    I don't think they're too girly. The blue and the chocolate are very appropriate for boys. If it's the charms with the hearts on which are looking a little girly maybe you could take those ones out and substitute something else in. Do you have any other fabrics which might go in?

    Have you seen any other quilts made up using pure? I saw this one and I don't think it looks at all girly:

        If your colors look anything like the one jrchapman showed us it's perfect. Boys don't mind small hearts do they?

          Where did you find that picture. If so where there any instructions. Its a cute quilt. I thought abought taking the hearts out, but it still looked girlie to me. But after the pic you displayed I think it was the way I had it layed out.

            I don't think it looks girly at all. Of course I can't see the little hearts on it, but from here, that quilt looks great!
            Love the pattern.

              The picture was on the makelifesweet blog (the makers of the pure line) but it's designed by Rachel Griffith at ps I quilt. There's more information on her blog but no pattern because it was in a magazine: http://www.psiquilt.com/2010/06/coin-collecting.html.

              It looks like she sewed the strips of a honey bun together to make the blocks and then sashed them. You could try cutting the charm pack squares into 2 or three and sewing them together.

                I agree - for once this is not a girly line....I am so frustrated trying to find fabrics that aren't outdoors related that are boy friendly....and the Pure line is boy friendly in my book!!

                  Thanks gals for your feedback. A special thanks to JR for the visual. Sometimes a different look at something works better. That did the trick. my design just wasnt working out in my mind. I went to her blog and got a good look, thanks. My weekday evenings are jam packed so I wont be able to work on it until this weekend grrr.
