DONE DONE Part 2

Now that Broken Dishes is done see previous post) and other WIPS await backing fabric, it is time to start thinking about a NEW PROJECT!!!! Spoken like a true quilt addict, huh? Here are two patterns that I have had tucked away for quite some time. For some reason I have the urge to applique. I'm thinking of combining these two--you know, picking and choosing blocks from each. I will most likely use all the ones with animals, then fill in with some of the others or come up with my own. I like the simpler border on Simple Pleasures so will probably use that border. I will most likely change the color scheme to fit better with my living room, as it may be a wall hanging. I definitely need to spiffy up the decor!!! Lori Smith, who designed both of these, sent me the sweetest handwritten note when she shipped these. That always makes me think so fondly of a designer when he or she takes the time to do that!

Oh I can't wait to see your version! I love it when people "tweak" patterns to make them their own!

I love your broken dishes and just can't wait to see your version of Lori's 2 patterns. She is so sweet. I've met her at Market and she would do anything in the world to satisfy her customers.
