I am so excited! They are so pretty, and I really like dots. My The Earth Laughs in Flowers quilt was made completely out of dotted fabric. That's why its nickname and working title was Daisy's Chickenpox.
A part of me wants to undo the ribbons and find a pattern make something new right away. And another part is telling me to be reasonable and keep working on the quilts that are already on the top of the list and not let another quilt cut in line.
And yet another part of me is saying, just use them for the quilt you are already making. The red, white and blue fabrics would fit right in on the Sweet Land of Liberty quilt. At this point, I haven't cut the ribbon, but I have to admit that I have fondled and admired each of the fabrics and have already started using the floss for the Sweet Land of Liberty. After all, I had to turn the hatchet from that last post into a flag.
And yet another part of me thinks I could compromise and make a small quilt to really honor the collection and then put the fabrics into future projects as they fit.
Sorry about the stains on the table. It is on my porch and doesn't wash off. I will have to sand it and paint or stain it someday when I am not quilting.
