First thanks so much for all the nice ideas. I am really liking all the solid red designs that Kathy Schmitz makes too, as well as her solid black ones. I am seriously leaning towards that option with these designs. Best of all if I try something out and don't absolutely love it for the quilt, it can be used for other things like a pillow or something.
Now for the good stuff! I got a couple quilt tops finished this weekend for Christmas!
This is based on a pattern by Cheri Saffiote from 1999, a pretty old one. This is Cheri's Primitive Stick Tree. I seem to be on quite a Cheri Saffiote Payne kick at the moment. Of course once you make tops, you end up with all these tops that need quilting so I think I'll be doing that for the next few weeks.
