this beautiful fabric is currently sitting on top of my printer waiting for me. yes, that's about how organized i am right now with piles of fabric laid aside for certain projects all over my workroom.
i apologize for all the early holiday posts! usually i don't decorate for christmas or anything until after thanksgiving but i've got to get the shop ready prior to that so i've got it on the brain now!
my last machine quilt gave me a lot of confidence and ever since i thought a fun and relatively quick project would be a christmas lap quilt to go in our living room during the holidays. i agonized over picking out the perfect fabric that we would want to curl up in year after year and finally fell in love with michael miller's "christmas spice" collection for it's bright cheery look and it's mix of retro and modern lines. the colors remind me of the old cartoon version of whoville in "how the grinch stole christmas."
my only problem now is that i can't for the life of me decide what kind of quilt design to use with it since some of the prints are huge and others so small in comparison. i just can't find a quilt pattern that will show them all off equally. and some are so different from each other that i might just give up on being able to combine them all into one quilt. what do you think, any ideas on what kind of design would work best?
