    I am making a quilt for our bed in 3 shades of green, 3 shades of burgundy, and a pale gold background. The burgundy is a large floral and a smaller leaf pattern. The fabrics are a line called Willowberry Winter from Maywood Studios and I looked for years to find the fabric. I can't wait till it's done!

    Mine has navy, black, and white, with deep yellow borders.......Ugggggly!, LOL!

    It's for my DD's husband Bert, of the Military Barracks Quilt Project fame. She designed it, wanted it to replicate his "device" which is his "family crest" (self-designed) chosen for their medieval reenactment hobby. Her "device" is the yellow borders with the star-thingy. That's all set-in with "Y" seams.

    I'll have to make something quick, small, spring-fresh and floral after this one, just to clear the "taste" of this from my eyes!!! Never have made such a (personally) unpleasant quilt, LOL! To each his own!

    The graphic 'pattern' for it, it's done as a triple rail.

    I'm in the binding stage of a scrappy monotone lavender/purple for my neice's baby. It's a contemporary design, which I haven't done before.
    To rest, I do a few days of flying geese from scraps, building up to the completed-top stage.
    Next is finishing the border stage of a sampler with so many colors it's ridiculous - mostly autumn.
    Next are 4 "somethings" small crazy quilt projects using my dad's ties.
    And next ... and next ... and next ... and next. lol

    I'm using scraps of Central Park (Moda) to make a small baby quilt so it's orange, turquoise, kind of a bright olive, fuschia, umm, lime green. I don't have scraps from the whole charm pack, it has a lot of white squares & sashing too.

    All of my wip's are bright and scrappy, must be the time of year, it's not very colorful outside, but it sure is in my sewing room!

    OH MY! That is so pretty, perennial favorite is a great name. Maybe I'll make some extra pinwheel blocks for the pinwheel project and lay them out like that!

    Several projects going at once, but I usually do scrappies so I guess if you name it, it is probably in there somewhere, no matter what is in my hands at the moment!

    I am using Batiks for the Back to Nature quilt. First time I have ever used Batiks. They kinda grow on you.
