    No system here either. I think that I will start from scratch. First I will make a list of my UFO's and work from there.

    My system is a focal fabric and then I roll with it! No set project or pattern until I find just one piece of fabric I like then I look for a pattern. Sometimes I will see a pattern and then find the focal fabric and go. It all depends on how the fabric "talks" to me.

    No system, I print some patterns, email some to myself and continue to find more I would love to make. I look back through my patterns and they all seem new again and OH so pretty and interesting.

    I copy the picture of quilts I like and paste them in a word document labeled Quilts in my computer. Then when I need inspiration I go through that document. I even talk picture of quilts at shows, shops, etc. and add them to this document.
