Trying to Decide

To review: The theme of this year's QAWM is Someday quilts, or quilts I mean to make someday and that day is now. So I am standing at the crossroads here trying to decide which of these fabulous (and all of them so easy) quilts to make next. Will it be prints or solids?

Here we have a Gwen Marston and Freddie Moran strip sweetie and then Robin Ferrier's gorgeous hand dyed solid masterpiece. Love them both. I already have oodles of strips ready to go, but also have a zillion hand dyes in my fave colors too. O the choices.


And then I have been looking at this disappearing four-patch from Beth of LoveLaughQuilt which looks like I would love making it, plus I have been collecting stripes, so there's that too. But the last one here is so me-likey in it's simplicity. It is from Anne Parker and while it is delicious in her colors, I can also see it in mine, all pastel-ly, as that is my mindset at the moment.  It's one of those simple ideas that can go on forever in multiples and always hold up.
I am going into the studio and see what happens. I never can decide until I get out the fabric and see what's what.

  3. I like your remark about never really knowing until you get into the studio....I'm like that. Robin's quilt is an absolute favourite of mine too.

  4. They're all tempting! Thanks for the ideas.

    The link to LoveLaughQuilt doesn't work (it begins with "file" instead of "http"). It should be http://lovelaughquilt.blogspot.com/2011/02/another-d4p.html

  10. I really like all the quilts, but I especially like your choice with the strips and hand dyes. If I hadn't just started a new quilt I would be really tempted! I am going to try to add some of these to my favorites though for future reference.
    I'm intrigued but he disappearing four patch too. I must collect some stripes!
