    Default Okay, I'm giving in

    Alright everyone, I'm gonna make the jump. You may not believe it, but in the 5 years of operating a quilt shop with the fam, I've never made my own quilt. I've never once quilted. So I'm gonna jump in, I"m doing it. I'm going to make the dresden coin quilt, I feel like I can tackle that, but I'm having a heck of a time picking a pretty fabric that isn't girly. Can you throw me some suggestions? I'll post pics as I go!

    You go Al!

    Walk over to the Civil War Repro fabric - I'm sure something will "speak" to you there. Most of the guys I know prefer the muted and darker colors.

    wild animals would work, or geometrics in primary colors. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Totally agree with some browns and blues - would look great in the dresdan coin.

    K is for Karen .....................Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?
