Full plate

6/17/2008

It never fails. The minute I have a little time I start to fill it up innocently with swaps and before you know it BAM I have one too many swaps on my hands, various projects for friends and family, gifts to make, oh and a large wholesale order to get done. I am not complaining because I put myself in the situation every time and have yet to learn my lesson.


This is the starting inspiration for the great Doll Quilt Swap. This time around is a slight challenge for me, the request from my partner is for a more modern quilt. Hmph I have never done a modern quilt. No worries thank goodness for the library I got Denyse Schmidt Quilts and got ready for a fun challenge.

I have it narrowed down to two color patterns. The more I look at the one with orange the more I drawn to it. Do you have a favorite? I wanted a bright, yay it is summer feeling to the quilt. If this turns out as cool as I am hoping I may have to make another one for myself.

This swap I have until the end of the summer, but I know me and if I don’t start it now I will be sewing like a mad women the night before and it wont be my best work. Plus I need to get the book back to the library!

I have to agree with the others...there is just something about that stack of fabrics with the orange...it really pops.
