I finally picked it...

Well... after a lot of deliberating. I finally opened LQ II for inspiration and there was the answer staring me in the face. GM's version of the Shoo Fly is one of my favorites in the book and that is the reason I chose this (Hole In The Barn Door) quilt which is similar. It will be so fun to Liberatedly (is that a word) piece this quilt. I chose a lot of the same colors (on their way to me as we speak) and a few that are a little, hmmm, more liberal shall we say. Tonight after dinner and after my husband comes home from his business trip (he was supposed to be home Thursday but... have you heard about the ice storm in OKC?) I am going to make a "Practice" block with some of my batik fabric. I have a feeling I might be making it twice one in Amish colors and one in batik... weeee.

oh, yeah, that's a beauty! My husband is up in DC and starts driving home tomorrow - I'm worried about all that stinking snow too.
