Just a few things ..

So, I've been thinking of a few things:

1 - I need to post about a few things -- my trip to DC and my cousin's birthday.

2 - I need to take my craftsy class .. (what am I waiting for??)

3 - I need to get my nails done before I chew them off ..

4 - I need to keep up with my sisters, cousins and friends.  How to do that???

So any how, this was a post I started a while ago but never finished, hence the jumping around.  Lately I've been starting posts and not finishing them.  I'm jotting things down when I think about them so I don't forget.  

I've been trying to decide what to do with the American Jane Look and Listen fabric.

This is the charm pack -- you can't see all the different fabrics, but you can see there are some geometrics, some kids/toys squares, other stuff.  I like it and it is super soft.

I was thinking of doing something like this ..

But I am not sure. The other thing I was thinking of was a disappearing nine patch, using the charm pack and the off white fabric I got with it, and putting sashing between the squares, with the ruler from the fabric above.  I wish I had a computer program that I could use to try it out to see how it would look. 

I'll probably start tonight and let you know what I decide ...

I think a large 4 patch would be the perfect way to show off that charm pack. You could always do 9 patches and make an Irish chain quilt. Im about to start one of those . It looks easy and the end results are lovely.

The ruler sashing with the DP9 sounds pretty interesting. I like the 4 patch version too.

Happy Birthday, C.S.!!
