Simple Enough

Yep, I'm a sucker for a new quilt pattern. An even bigger sucker when the pattern is super simple. Simple enough to make at my kitchen table, simple enough to make with a little boy playing nearby, simple enough that I don't have to rely on much brain get the idea.

I saw this pattern when I was browsing through some of my favorite on-line quilt stores this afternoon. I can imagine this quilt made with a variety of different fabrics. Lots of ideas pop in my mommy-drained brain! I've been wanting to try working with some Asian-inspired fabrics, and this quilt pattern just might be an option for me.

I have looked at lots of Asian-inspired fabrics lately, but I'm not convinced what to buy. I'm not sure I like the typical red and black fabrics. They look very traditional and lovely, but it's not what I envision for my house. I did see some muted golds, blues and tans that were beautiful too. I'm just not sure (those who know me best won't be surprised to hear me say that)! I'll be *forced* to look at more fabric until I find what I'm looking for! Any ideas? Send them my way!
