    Default Re: What does mauve look like?

    Callie's mom, DH's sister, told me the nursery colors & I want it to be a surprise. I ventured out to Joann's today & took me forever to locate a mauve. OMG. What they say is mauve sure isn't what I have in my stash. JA's mauve is a purply plumy. It probably would look okay with a light pink. I'm gonna shop a little more in my stash before I buy anything. I'll try to post a pic when I get it done.
    Going back to the comments about green/gold etc makes me want to ask: What happened to blue for boy & pink for girl blankies/quilts? Looking for mauve almost caused a brain meltdown. Sigh. I know Callie will love whatever I make for her baby girl so I will press on.


    Again, thanks for the help. You guys rock!

    Help, pretty please!

    Gina there's several "mauves" out there :

    (this one is more "purple" than I have ever seen for a "mauve" color)

    This thread is more of what I would call "Mauve" ....but of course we all have different opinions. I have a dear friend that asked me to make her a bed skirt, pillow cases & shams from a Mauve color close to this one mauve color (below)

    Hope this helps you!

    I'm leaning toward the first mauve you showed. I guess I could double check with SIL to confirm. She'll just tell me Callie'll love it with what color I make. I have to like it while I'm sewing, LOL!!

    Thanks, Sugar & hope you're having a great relaxing time pouring over the threads. There's lots!
