I Need Your Help! Pick the Fabric!

Hello Everyone,

I have been working hard on Christmas gifts and baby related projects. One of the last bigger projects I want to do before baby comes is make a crib skirt. I'm going to make it very easy and no sew with hem tape and velcro, but I need help picking the fabric.

As you know, we're doing a "hunting lodge" nursery. I have gotten these curtains from Ikea to separate the room: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40210925/

Once I have one print in the room, I get scared to use another one! So, I'm torn on which fabric to choose. As an FYI, I have grey walls, some brown furniture and some orange accents..

Both fabrics come from my favorite online fabric store, Hawthorne Threads

The first option is from Camelot Cottons and comes from their Day at the Zoo line. It's called "Tree Bark." It comes in three color options, Natural, Orange and Green.



The second option is also from Camelot Cottons and comes from their Woodland Adventure line. It's called "Tree Stripe." It comes in Brown and Blue color options.



Which do you choose? Why?

I like the orange tree bark one. I think the tree stripe is very similar in pattern to the IKEA ones. I also like the bold color. It will look great on gray walls. None of them are bad choices but I like the orange.

I like the Tree Stripe in the brown. You have orange pops all over the room and I think its adorable! And I think it would be a nice contrast to the curtains!

The orange tree bark is my favorite. I think it will tie in nicely with everything else in the room.
