    I could never pick just one. They each have their own beauty.

    There is a quilt that was in my first book, I still want to make it. Carpenter's square. I have had 2 bolts of fabric to make it for probably 15 years. I have been waiting until I am skilled enough to make it.

    Oh yes, there are so many that I like because of colors.
    I really like "Raptureready's avator" but unless I did it in the exact colors it would defeat what I want.
    Been waiting to tell her that since I first saw this bd.

    My favorite is a scrap quilt made from pink, green, and white fabrics. I pieced small rail fence blocks, each with a pink, white and green strip. I used the pale pinks and pale greens on some and darker greens and darker pinks on others and put them together in kind of a colorwash fashion. It turned out too long and narrow to suit me so I cut a wide border for one side and added appliqued flowers and stems and leaves up the side and then put a dark green border around it all and it is truly beautiful. No pattern, just made it up as it went along. Everyone loves it.

    I don't do well with patterns, I just use the general idea and put my own twist on it. But I do love stripe quilts.

    Pam you are without a doubt your own worst critic! Based on the stunning work I have seen you post you have more then enough skill to make that quilt. Get to cutting girl!

    WHEN I do that quilt, and I will.... It will be blue and white. A soft, worn denium blue. I have not washed the fabric and I want it to shrink a little to look vintage.

    I have too many projects on my plate to tackle that right now, have to get some done and clear them out. I also have to confess that I do not have a proper 1/4 inch foot and I will not tackle all of that strip piecing without one.

    Cabin quilter, those are wonderful, excellent use of color! Don't you just love what black does for everything else?

    Thank you, yes I really like black in quilts in fact I have made 6 with black background. The old eyes have to have lots of light to do them, but it is fun. Ruth

    15 year!?? Go on and make that quilt, Pam. Life is too short. As you develop "skill" your vision of "perfection" goes higher and higher. You may never reach what you think is "good enough." I encourage you to take a risk and go for it!! It will be beautiful. good luck.
