I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather for us almost couldn't be better. On Sunday, we went to Assateague Island - fun day even if the drive was fairly long for a day trip. I've always wanted to go, but we are not beach people, so this was pretty much the only option.

I have the whole line (fqs) & several go-withs from other fabric lines & Kona solids (Including a huge chunk of one that could be a dark background).
Now that you have come to the conclusion that New York Beauty, Grandmothers Flower Garden, something with more that 1 HST would be ideal - what would you do that could be considered "simple?"

I am wrestling with how to quilt this one...
Star(s) (6 pointed from the points - 1 big & 1 in the middle of that one)
"Cat" & stick figure cat (Then what background & where would you put "Cat" & the stickfigure cat)

Once upon a time ago, I started a Baltimore Album Quilt (took a year long class) I only have 1 more block to finish to make the big quilt, but... (Yes, there always is a but) once we learned paper cut blocks, I no longer wanted to do the style that had multiple fabrics. So here I sit with a couple blocks that have multiple fabrics that would look o.k. together & several that are paper cut... Several years ago now, I thought, why not make a couple small quilts rather than one big one? I guess the resulting quilt would look something like the one above.
Just for giggles, the quilt below was in the same show - I used the fabric in the background on this as the background on my BAQ (Or the same in a different color way - it came in 2 versions.)
Here are a couple of my blocks...
(For those of you who have been around this blog long enough - yes I shared them before in 2007.)
These show the background better:

A challenge resulted in these:

You know how much I like cat quilts. I've seen several quilts using this embroidery pattern, but this one with the cat tree is pretty clever.
I am a dandylion - so this is quite an appropriate quilt for me. (If you blow the puff, they go all over - my quilting/brain/blog/life goes all over just like a dandylion.)
Funny thing about digital photos (or maybe this just happens to me) they upload in any random order... The previous two quilt were quite separated from their close-ups. The next three "similar but different quilts - all together.
(except of course for the close-up on that last border...)
Enjoy. I hope to share some more tomorrow. Two shows on one day with the family in tow - this is the best that I can do.
