Working on some simple patchwork. It's for a new and exciting venture that I'm working on! No, I can't tell you about it yet, but soon!
Every once in a while, I'll ask Duane (my husband) his opinion on my current quilt top. Last night I held this one up for his inspection. This is somewhat similar to asking him if such and such a dress looks good on me. I mean, seriously, he doesn't have a lot of choice in his response!!
But I do love the fact that he's pretty honest, and I love trying to figure out a typical guy's tastes in color and design since it's not something he spends much time thinking about. It's kind of crazy, but if I were to make him a quilt, I wouldn't have any idea where to begin! I just never know what he'll like, or not like.
So this was our mini conversation:
Me: (sheepishly holding up quilt) Do you like the colors in this quilt?
Him: (looks up from book, slight pause) well... it has red...and blue...and white...and I really like those colors, but the mauve-y stuff and the green not so much
Me: (maeve-y?? colorblind much?)
Him: You put such unusual colors together, kinda reminds me of Tommy Hilfiger or something.
I have no idea what that meant, but I like the sound of it, so I'm taking it as a positive!!
