Thinking about what's next...

I'm finishing up some ongoing projects. So in between a few excursions on this Holiday weekend (including shopping for a new dishwasher) I pin basted my Hexagon quilt. You'll notice I pin baste on a table. No crawling around on the floor for me! I start in one corner and baste what's on the table, then move the quilt to do the remaining sections.I did get the quilting done. On tap a movie and binding tonight.
These blocks are finally coming together. It's working so far; I'll keep you posted!
And while I was quilting, I was thinking about what to start on next. I'm going to redo my guest bedroom this Summer. The walls will be silvery grey and I bought a really cute aqua night stand at Home Goods last week. I'm thinking of doing grey, aqua and pink.
I want a simple quilt with lots of white. Something a little whimsical and fun. I made these Asterisk blocks, increasing the size to 8" finished - it might be cute. Any other ideas?

  2. Binder clips are the best! I can't baste on the floor either...and if I do, I can't walk the next day!
