Live, Laugh, Dream

My quilt for the BASICS Quilt Gather is done:

All I need to do now is find a box the right size to ship it in. I'm pretty happy with it. I have to say it looks a lot better to me now, in its' finished state, than it did back when it had the Bow Tie borders. It looks cleaner to me somehow. Maybe that's just because this time it was photographed outside, against a lighter background! You should be able to click on the picture to get a larger image.

A couple of my readers suggested names for this quilt, and they were good suggestions. In the end, however, I decided to call it "Live, Laugh, Dream" after these three blocks:






My scap quilt is coming right along too. Yesterday I not only basted it, I got it quilted as well. I can hardly move today but it sure feels good to have done so much in one day. More about that in another post.

The question I'm playing with now is, what do I want to tackle next? I don't feel ready to go back to my ornaments for the Bead Journal Project. I kind of want to make more blocks and assemble another quilt top. The Churn Dash blocks are still out but I think I need something with more color and whimsy. Being a Gemini I like a lot of options. You never know how I'm going to be feeling on any given day!
