    New York Beauty and Mariner's Compass --- Still thinking about the color selection. Would use well saturated color, not pastels.

    All these quilts sound so beautiful, we should get brave and try them.

    I took a picture of a stained glass window in a church in Spokane, Wa. and I wish I could reproduce it in a quilt, but I don't have the skill or know how to accomplish it. But I can dream about it.

    I so want to make a bargello, but the instructions scare me silly. I can follow them thru making the tube, then it confuses me on where to unsew the tube. Would love to take a class.

    Have always wanted to make a quilt resembling adjoining farm fields. Colors of the planted fields with hills, valleys and streams and all the blue sky colors. But I need some atistic flair, unfortunately that escapes me.

    An applique quilt of two peacocks facing one another with their tails flowing down surrounded by large appliqued flowers in the same blue colors. I saw this in an Amish store in Bloomfield, IA last fall. Gorgeous, but I haven't found the pattern. Even if I found it, I'm not sure I'm brave enough to tackle it. Maybe just a dream.

    We have auctions here twice a year at an auction house nearby, and occasionally one of the peacock quilts turn up, they are gorgeous, they get quite a few amish quilts and tops. I go every time, like a sit down quilt show.

    Every Log Cabin that I have ever seen. 2nd - DB.W.R. - 3rd almost all nine patch except that stretched on.

    Of course whole cloth like the French ones.

    Only thing that I don't like is stippling.
    EDTA: YES, Baltimore Album quilts.

    That Orange peel on pg.2 is a "Happy Quilt".

    My dream quilt is not clearly in my mind, but it would be something breathtaking with beautiful colors, probably batiks, and perfect stitching. :mrgreen:

    If only...

    Double Wedding Ring and finish Sawtooth Cats, which is partly done in paper piecing. SC is living in a clean pizza box at the moment. Anyone else use clean pizza boxes for their finished quilt blocks to live in?

    My Dream Quilt would be the LoneStar in shades of blue. I have a king size bed so the star would have to be huge to begin with. I have a little bit of the know how but no where near enough to start it.

    I have so many that I'd love to make!

    I want to make a Baltimore Album...I want to make a Storm at Sea, with a Mariner's Compass incorporated into it...I have a pattern for a landscape quilt that I want to make...

    And then, of course, there's a list that includes nearly every pattern I've seen posted here! :lol:
