Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Having just (about since today is day 95) finished the 100 Blocks in 100 Days challenge, successfully, I feel ready to think about another on-going project.

Another challenge.

For awhile, I have been looking at "The 4" x 5" Quilt-Block Anthology, 182 Blocks for Reproduction Fabrics" by Carol Hopkins and Linda M. Koenig. This is a new publication from Martingale that only came out this spring.

And then it hit me this afternoon, during deck time, of course, that the school year around here is 180 days. Add in a few teacher prep days and you've got yourself a ready made time frame.

So now the question becomes...

Old time reproduction...
"Seasonal Little Gatherings" from Primitive Gatherings and Moda
A bundle from a few years back that never found its own project...

Or "Union Blues" by Barbara Brackman for Moda

Or new release, sort of old reproduction looking, fabrics from Laundry Basket Quilts, called "Silver Linings in Color"

Or kick it up a notch, to modern, Alison Glass and friends type of fabrics.

Or maybe Denyse Schmidt...

What's your vote? 

I've got a few days still to decide.

  1. Union Blues. Oh, and those blocks are adorable - but they are a UFO until you get a flimsy made!!!
