Decisions, Decisions – DWM

Thanks for all the input on the log cabin border. I still haven’t made a final decision but have narrowed the options. Today, I am  trying to come up with a plan for a quilt for one of my sisters. I made this quilt for my niece a couple years ago.

She took it to college with her but since she is home for the summer, my sister nabbed it for her guest room. Since I still have quite a few of these fabrics, I told her I would make her one of her own. These are all Denyse Schmidt prints.  I have these strips all cut up and may use them if I can figure out a plan.  

There are both 2 1/2 inch strips and 2 inch strips in here. I also have this lovely stack of charms that I cut.  

 I have yardage as well. I really love DS fabrics! I started collecting these prints when Daughter #1 got engaged so I could use them in her wedding quilt. I spent a week cutting all the bits for her quilt and at the same time, cutting out tumblers, hexagons, these strips and charms. This was before I had my die cutter! Here are the quilts I have made so far from my week of cutting. First a full on shot of the tumbler quilt for my niece shown above.Blog 012

The next one was Daughter #1’s wedding quilt.20130303-194140.jpg

 

 

This one I put together from leftover blocks and Daughter #1 quilted it for a friend of hers that was going through some health issues.20140228-214746.jpg

 

And this is my DS Hexie quilt that I recently gifted to a dear friend that is moving away.

I still haven’t tired of these prints and today, I may just put that die cutter to work and cut up the rest!

    I am into the mode of whittling down my scraps. Finding fun designs that won’t take a long time to put together is a challenge. Your tumblers look great!

    That fabric line is adorable, Katy! I love that you’ve used it three different ways. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a good idea to have a stash of a favourite fabric line that you can dip in to and enjoy for a variety of projects.

  4. Your quilts look great Katy, and how lucky to still have so much of the fabric you love! It will be fun to see what you do with them. 🙂 Thanks for linking up to Main Crush Monday!
