Three main quilt project ideas are pitter-pattering around. They each have an intended recipient, and I am excited about each possibility.
Number 1: Quilt for my son's bed. The daughters each have gotten a quilt, but son has not. He has a black-and-white duvet cover that he loves, and seemed excited about this pattern when I showed it to him. I would like to feature Asian prints in either the white or black-and-red areas.
Number 2: Queen-size quilt for youngest daughter's bed. She has graduated away from twin-size, meaning the quilt I made her years ago is too small. She actually asked me to make her a new quilt, knowing it might take three years to see the finished product.

this book, which has awesome ideas in it for quilts that are more than the simple-bordered-matrix style. And, since I am one who loves to complicate just about any fabric project, this seems up my alley. I had such a hard time keeping my hands off when Sweetie was musing about what she would do with her college t-shirts--"Oh, what about the numbers off some of your old jerseys?" "Don't you need your college mascot in here somewhere?" "How about unifying the colors in some way?" Now that I can dream about it, oh the fantasies that come to mind...
Which project? Have I completed "enough" from the WIP/UFO pile to start a new project like this? Or will I just happily day-dream my way through the fall, as I work on completing some older, smaller projects?
