A couple of weeks ago, Thing One and DH went to the local quilt shop and picked out a gift for me...two yards of Lucky Cat fabric and a set of 9 little batik squares with Lucky Cat on them. Ever since then, they've been asking me almost every day what am I goin to do with them, and have I started yet? Geesh, don't they understand that these things have to marinate for a while?
So I've been thinking and thinking about what to do. Last night, while I was sleeping an idea came to me. Obviously, I'm not the only quilter that has these dreams about how to solve a problem in a project or who dreams up quilt designs. Just today, Nines mentioned the same thing!
Anyway, last night, I dreamed of the batik panels as the larger square in a Warm Wishes Quilt. That could work with the all over pattern in the other large part of the alternate block and maybe a cream and a green in the other places.
But then I was looking at some pictures I took on my recent retreat, and I saw this idea, which could also work
So great, I had no ideas, now I've got two. But wait! Then I saw
this post on Norma's blog today. Now I am in a quandry...I don't know which of these ideas I like the best. I guess I need to go back to sleep and think about it some more. And then tomorrow I'll ask Thing One for her opinion, which I always trust when it comes to design decisions.
I wonder how long it will be before I start this project? Did you notice that I'm starting lots but not actually finishing things? Grrr................
