    I think of D9P or any quilt done with squares or strips. I wonder what a double wedding ring (traditional wedding quilt) done with a darker background and lighter ring pieces might look like.

    see if your library has a book by Thimbleberries and have her look it over for one that meets what she is thinking of.

    Yes, the Kansas Troubles lines are so beautiful and so country! I second the nomination!

    Likewise the mention of Kim Diehl - I just got her latest book before Christmas and it's eye candy on every page. She does a lot of applique', though - do you like applique'?

    Does she mean "country" as in "traditional?" Or country as in "primitive?"

    Yup, I was also going to suggest using the Kansas Troubles...it is country, through and through. My favorite.
