Slowly but surely, I will have this “new kid’s room” thing figured out. First of all whoever decided that it should be near impossible to photograph yellow on grey? I don’t know where my skills are lacking, but I’m just not able to get this image to be true. Anyhow, this is the problem; I am currently having a little issue with the fabric I ordered to make curtains out of, I’m totally into the pattern, I think I am secretly a little obsessed with chevron patterned items these days but I am just not 100% on the color. It seems to be a little bright goldenrod and I was expecting a more true yellow color. The question is, would you just say screw it and use it anyway cause it’s probably close enough, or would you start over with something new? Here is the fabric against the grey wall and next to some fabric swatches I used in the quilt.
For reference, here is the most recent version of where I am with the planning and purchasing, things have changed a bit, and I’ve settled on some art work. The quilt is nearly finished and I am using this Amy Butler Optic Blossom fabric on the back of it, which I adore. I’ve got some items that are more yellow-lemon yellow, and a lot of my fabric is more of a true yellow. What do you think, does the cornhusk-chevron fabric work? Lemme know!
