It has arrived!

Yes, the quilt book that I won arrived on Friday. It was exciting to say the least. I can't remember the last time I won anything. As you can see it is the book "Geared for Guys". It is signed by the author, Emily Herrick, of "Crazy Old Ladies".

 There are some amazing quilts in there. Here is the first one I want to do. It will be for a friend of the family.

It is called "Switch Back". I will probably stick pretty close to  these colours, which means I have to buy fabric. There is a huge fabric store about three hours drive from where I live. Will get there sometime this summer for sure.

Thanking the people of "Crazy Old Ladies" for the chance to win!

Watch out for today's blessings!

I am stumped!

Ok, I need some ideas. I have had this quilt "sandwiched" for a long time. Every time I pick it up to quilt it, I don't!

 I do know that I don't want an all over design, but a design that features the block.  Kind of a bad picture but you see the orange and yellow blocks come together to make a white four point star.

For those who are not sure what my set up is; I sew on a Pfaff expression 4.0 which is a home machine with a larger than normal sewing space. If you are a long armer and you have a design that might work, please pass it along.

How would you quilt this quilt?

Watch out for today's blessing!
