Just as I started the-quilt-project-that-will-take-forever, or DWR for short, I found new inspiration in the latest issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine (on newstands now and through June 3).
This issue has an interesting follow-up article to last year's Stash Rx, with Weeks Ringle giving more advice about working with the fabric you have in your stash. Her advice comes with real, hands-on examples. I found it quite interesting. But what really caught my eye were two projects that are going on my "must make" list.
First, "Count Your Lucky Stars" by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts. Lots of half-square triangles in this one! My only question is, French General or Fig Tree scraps?
Second, I am nuts about the graphic modern-ness of "Pattern Play" by Pat Bravo.
Last December, I reviewed Color Essentials by Amanda Murphy. The books shows the Kona Sunset palette of solid fabrics. I'm thinking of using it, minus the very pale shades, with white and gray, to make my own version of "Pattern Play."
So many quilts, so little time!
