Decision Made

Hi everyone from a very very cold and white SW France!  Ton - you definitely wouldn't like France this winter.  It's been the worst winter ever!

Anyway, on to more important things.

I've looked through the Amish web site and there is nothing there that grabs my attention.  I suppose some of the Roman Stripes do and perhaps some of the bars, but there is nothing that I'd want to put on my wall.

So I got out all my Gwen books again and there, in LQI, was my inspiration.  Gwenny's Variable Stars.  I've only ever made one star quilt and that was for my niece.  It will be nice to have one in this house.

I'm pulling fabric at the moment and hope to get started sometime next week.

Just realised - I've got the selection process the wrong way round.  Has the quilt GOT to come from the Amish Collection?

Well, you know how I fell about sticking to the rules... go for it. I love that quilt of Gwen's too and it is pretty Amishy.

Actually - I was looking at the Roman Stripes again. I like 43 and 60. This is going to be a wait and see quilt!

Actually, there is a variable star on the Brown's website, #71. I love stars also and have my eye on it.
