So many ideas...where to start?

I love this pattern and the way it looks all vintage with the great color combination. I wonder if my green and brown fabrics will translate well with this pattern....hmmmm. I have 4 quilts right now to finish and a new baby coming who will need something spectacular from Granny....better get busy...time is a wasting! I love to Quilt! No complaints here. 2010 will be the best year ever!

I love this color combination! Deep Browns and leafy greens.

I saw this fabric and loved it. What it ends up as is anyone's guess. Since I love tradtional old fashioned quilts it will probably be along those lines.

Double Nine Patch

I'm thinking a double nine patch on point.....

Can't wait to get this loaded into the frame!

This will be the first quilt I load on the Z44. The fabrics are bright and colorful. Cheri Strole-Basic-Ally is the fabric that I am using for the backing-its a yellow and red/orange stripe. I still need to figure out the binding but with so many great colors, I know I will find something. Since this will be for my Granddaughter, I think flowers and butterflies will be used in my handquilted designs.

My New Quilt Frame!

My Grace Z44 frame is stained and varnished and assembled (Thanks Todd!). Now I need to load a quilt and will have to read the directions carefully! I am sure that it will be fabulous!
