For Sherri's 50th birthday, my present was a commitment to make her a quilt - colors are her choice, pattern is my choice. Though if I can narrow it down to a couple of patterns, I'll get her input. I didn't commit to a timeline, which is good since she has already had another birthday.
The color inspiration for the quilt is her living room area in her new house...earthy beige/browns with grey and the pop of colors being rust/orange and blue/turquoise. The overall feel is cozy modern (is that a thing?).
My next step is to find a pattern - I don't want anything too traditional. I have a couple of ideas so I need to look up those patterns and choose which I want to move forward with. I'd also like to pick out some fabrics or at least pick out some samples in the colors I'm looking for.
