Fabrics!

This is the fabric for Lucy's bedding & window valence - I am going to make a quilt but it won't be a "traditional" patchwork style, but I haven't yet determined exactly how it will look. I'm still bouncing ideas around in my head. I wanted to get the fabrics so I can match paint for the walls (the top lavender shade will be the wall color (at least the bottom half of the walls, then a dark blue border with hand-painted words... then white above that).
I had my mind made up that I wanted lavenders and blues, and it was not easy finding fabrics that fit my mental image. I am a little ADD when it comes to decorating, and I get frustrated at the fabric store when I can't find the colors and styles that I made up in my imagination (irrational as that may be). I wanted to incorporate kind of a starry-night type of theme (soothing and not too babyish) but still girly and not too cartoonish. We'll see how it turns out, because we (I) may start painting the room this weekend! We want Lucy to have at least a few months of adjustment to her new room before a baby comes and takes hers away! Plus it will be nice to finally update the 3rd main floor bedroom from its current state.
