I am so excited to start this Double Wedding Ring quilt I can hardly stand it!  It's so enticing to start...but I know I need to wait just a little bit more, before I immerse myself head first and spend endless hours on it.  Thanks to all the great input on my last post, I was reassured that navy would be a good pick for the "Cameo" jelly roll.

 I called the jelly roll fabric the "Lark" line in my last post.  It's "Cameo" by Amy Butler.  Baby's fault.

I decided to add a few solids and take out a couple of the navy prints, to keep the contrast.  Yellow and white for the 1/2 square triangles.  I hope this is everything I envision...Oh I hope...I hope!!  FYI, this pattern will be jelly roll friendly and you will need 40 jelly roll strips.  So if you have a fantastic jelly roll you've been saving for something special...you may want to hold on to it for a Double Wedding Ring quilt someday. ;o)

Thinking of what to make the girls for Christmas, I came across these fat quarters the girls picked out sometime ago.

 I want to make them a soft and cuddly, girly lap quilt.  I'll use wool batting (excellent choice for a snugly blanket) and minke or fleece for the backing material.  I'm going to try to keep this a secret.  Better get it done before Christmas Break then!

 Finally, going to start quilting some customer quilts today.  Loaded and ready to go!  I'm doing a pantograph, working from the back of the machine and have 2 more to go after this.  All poly quilts with double batting (customers pick)....Can you say warm!
