6.29.14--What ?

Lately, several people have told me how they have taken a departure from their usual fabrics. I did, too. I bought pink and green. I do not see any orange, do you? I have a Bow Tie quilt in mind with an Irish Chain variant quilt for the scraps. Somehow, I want to work in some applique, too.

Right now, I have an idea to do a pattern that has the quilter make one shopping list and create THREE different small quilts that coordinate. They are to be table toppers, wall quilts, or doll quilt size, probably not bigger than 30". So far, I have 4 running quarter yard cuts in pink, and 4 in green. Actually, I think I have a couple of fat quarters in there. I want the pattern to be able to be used either way. I think it will work for scrappy, too.

I continue to think about it while working on the Dresden. If I had that computer program--EQ7--I could get this set-up designed in a day. I belong to AQS and qualify for the discount on the program but I am hesitant to spend the money. It is not a cheap program.

I tried two free iPad apps for design, but they are so basic I feel better off with my graph paper and pencil.

I wrote the above before I left for a month. I am not too sure how soon I will get back to that particular set of fabrics, or the pattern idea, but it is good to have somewhere to begin.
