" Hmm, that reminds me of a New York Beauty. I love the New York Beauty. I should really make that Pat Sloan quilt that is in my binder."
(Ladies, you know the binder I'm talking about. The one that has all the quilt patterns you've culled from years of quilting magazines and you have sworn you will make all of them before you leave God's green earth!)
"I could make each quarter section to represent each of the seasons. I have that really great hand dyed fabric for spring, oh and that great snow fabric for winter. Now, what will I use for Fall?. I'd have to enlarge the pattern though to make it wall hanging size. Yeah, that'll work!".
And without touching any fabric or taking a single stitch, I made a quilt! And, you know, it was pretty satisfying! Seww, you see, you do have time to quilt even in December. You just do it in your head!
Oh, and here is a picture of the quilt I was thinking about from McCall's Quilting, October, 2006.
Have a quilty day!
