Looking Ahead

  Making Quilts…the promise of joy

I have a list of UFO quilts that I need to finish before I move, however, I am looking ahead to quilts of the future.  I bought Kathy Doughty's book, Making Quilts: the Promise of Joy

The pictures are beautiful and there are at least 3 quilts in it that I want to make -actually can't wait to make.  So, I worked out a compromise with myself.  One of my UFO's was supposed to be a stack and whack in green and deep purple.  I am changing it to "Red Center"-although mine will be purple center-so I can at least make one quilt from Kathy's book before I move.  I won't be buying anymore fabric-unless I have to-just repurposing the fabric I have-now I can't wait to start that UFO!

Here is the fabric:

The contrast will be in color rather than value. the middle one may end up being most of the back as I have several yards of it.  I may have to find a few fat quarters to supplement. May even add some Kaffee Fassett.

And this is the first quilt i will be making after the move!

I Love this quilt!

It's always so fun to dream. Unfortunately, I lose a lot of sleep doing so. :-)
