New Project in mind...

I met up with my friend Connie for lunch today and, as usual, we talked about quilts.  It turns out that we both have Inspired by Tradition by Kay Mackenzie.  Connie decided that she would do a wall hanging based off of some of the blocks in that book and it sounded like a good idea.  My Baltimore Album BOM that I was working on got nixed when the person in charge of it got flooded out and lost her information and computer.  This will replace that but I might, eventually, get back to doing them.  Perhaps I should put it on an official UFO list and work on it.

At lunch I picked out my blocks and figured out how I think I will like them.  The book comes with a bonus CD which has the 50 applique blocks in 5 different sizes so I don't have to wrack my brain trying to figure out how to enlarge or decrease a pattern.  Here is what I thought I'd do.

I'm not sure if I'll do sashings or not but have time to figure it out.  These are the colors shown in the book.  I'm not sure yet what fabrics I will be using.  More on that later.

I also bought a couple more mug rug patterns.  These are from Klee2Strongs on Craftsy.  I love her mug rugs.  They are reasonably priced for around $2.  What's not to love? 

That's it for now.  I'll chat with you all another day.

I am going to be trying my hand at these quilts with all the wonderful appliques in them! I love the pics you have here Bonni and would love to see some blocks from you :) You would do a fabulous job!!

Thanks Hmarie. I'll see what I can do about sending you some of my blocks. These aren't too bad. I'm thinking of making them 12.5" so they finish at 12".

I think you have a great idea. Put a new project directly on the UFO list. That's where all mine end up anyway....grin. These are all lovely patterns.

Thanks Billie. I am almost done with the t-shirt so I will have to decide which project next. There are so many to choose from. LOL. If I put any on the UFO list it should be the medieval one.
