Hey Mz Melody,

I'm SOOOO excited!!!!

Heavy on the silks, please but doesn't have to be 100%.  Loved the colors in Donaleen's or Allegro. Metropole's color and design.  Loved, loved the three separate elements in Unfurling.  Also loved, loved the ferns and dots.

Love the explosion of Tropicana.
Love the ferns in Fern Trio.
Love the glow and drama in Full Sails
Love Brooke's Quilt #3
Love the dots, French knots and twigs of Treehouse #7.
Love the tiny elements in Desert Sky plus the variety of colors.
Love the glow and composition of Cross Series #5
Love the complexity of Cross Series #4
Love the similar sides, totally different center of Print Parade #1

I'd like to know what else you would like from this list:
1. choices of size (with price based on size)22 inch, please
2. orientation: horizontal, vertical, square Vertical/portrait, please
3. color scheme: pastel, high contrast, dark and murky, neutrals, vivid, earthy vivid, high contrast, plus throw in whatever fits.
4. surface treatments such as hand quilting, fancy machine quilting, hand or machine embroidery, embellishments or stamping/paint (no beading!) Lottsa beading (just kidding) Any hand and machine quilting combo that strikes you
5. imagery: abstract, botanical, geometric, atmospheric I'd say botanical - I really, really love all your ferns.  But, throw in any imagery you like, too.

6. fused or pieced. no hand applique. Both are fine.

I'm sure my examples are all over the place.  Any vivid, high contrast colors you decide will be wonderful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Melody for this whole experience!  It's a journey all of us are enjoying to the fullest.

Hope your reno's done toot sweet!

    Thank you for the info on the lighting. I was wondering about that. And congratulations on your weight loss. I know how difficult it is to stick to it.
