I've always wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt. And a dear friend gave me a set of Marti Mitchell's templates to aid me in the Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt I made last year. So of course now I've gotten a second wind and can't sleep :( So I'm following Sarah's advice and internet surfing for my next great idea for a quilt.
I've seen a great puzzle quilt I'd like to make- you know the kind that looks like a jigsaw puzzle. Then I've taken out larger pieces to cut some more 2 1/2" strips for another Quiltville quilt in the future. In doing so I noticed all my lights or whites or creams- no tans, no pale colors - it's either light or dark. Weird huh????
Well I have them in beautiful moda charms but that's about it.....
I ordered another silk batting in king size for the pineapple blossom quilt. If you've never used one I HIGHLY recommend you try it. I love the feel of the gmfg quilt as it does have silk batting. It was a dream to hand quilt through also.
Maybe I'll buy a wool one one day but for now, I'm loving the silk :)
But I guess I'll go surf some more - or find a book and try to read till I fall asleep- sometimes it works, and sometimes I"m up all night reading- one never knows....
