    I have so many. The one I really must get to is one of my own design I started several years back of all the little girl's in long dresses. I made them like dressing paper dolls trimming them is lace and other trimmings. I fussy cut flowers trees and shrubs to make garden or park settings for them with pup's, kitty's,birds and butterfly's. Doing all this by hand has taken me forever. Now I have a little DGD I want to finish it for. I am on the 12th. and last block.

    It was "dear jane" until my GD came and said she wants a quilt with cats..she does take priority. I told her I wasn't sure I could do one of those and she responded, "mom, you can do it! I have confidence in you!" (and she is just 6 years old!) She is correct I have a pattern and am about to begin! How we love these little one, huh?

    Oh my ...

    A scrappy pattern (not sure which yet) using only plaid homespuns. Saw one in a book using a jeweled pattern, saw another here on the board today that was a gorgeous log cabin!!

    A pattern I've had for months using diamonds, I've been collecting just the right fabrics for it in rich colors of jewel tones on black or browns with gold.

    Dear Jane, and I have specific color choices and again have been collecting fabrics. All I say is batiks.

    A "manly" plaid flanel. I have some fabrics collected, not all, and no pattern decision yet.

    A fracture. I finally found the panel that I want to fracture but have two other projects I need/want to finish first.

    A sampler, but not sure which one. Will probably design my own using traditional blocks, some with applique (I've not done applique yet).

    I need to design something to hang on the wall behind my bed. It needs to be long and narrow (like 74" long and perhaps 30" deep). I'm waffling between bargello and celtic ... I might just see if I can combine the two *somehow*.

    A whole cloth. I'd like to do this one by hand. Have not tried hand quilting yet. Will probably do a mini first.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Your quilt sounds lovely and I'm sure your DGD will love it.

    The quilts on my bucket list are all of the ones I have started and need to finish plus all of the ones I'm always dreaming up and are still in my head.
