I ordered a couple of books from Amazon that are giving me ideas:
This first one, 3 Times the Charm, Book 2 has some GREAT patterns - it's very promising. I like the straight forward directions.
The second one, Simple Quilts from Me and My Sister Designs: Easy as 1, 2, 3 has a great series of quilts that take you from basic to more complicated - I'm thinking my friends may want to get in on this one!
I'm thinking of doing half square triangles with the Free Spirit fabrics as the base, mixing in the other fabrics (batiks and Kona). The colors would be FUN!
I'll let you know how it goes. Till then, what sort of fabrics are you working with?
PS. As an Amazon Associate, I receive compensation (it's tiny, but it adds up!!) if you purchase either of the books. I LOVE them, so far!!
