Some designs to pursue

Linda Nussbaum

Wow! I am seriously out of practice here! And I mean that in so many ways, but primarily on the blogging front. I will say that in the last few months I've at least added a post or two on The Creative Bungalow website, and just last week I posted a phone wallet tutorial on Cool Cottons' blog. I'll eventually repost that tutorial here, but that might have to wait until after the holiday season.

As I am trying to get ducks in a row, plan new projects and simply looking for inspiration going forward I decided to revisit some of the designs I created during my short-lived activity with the Quilt Design A Day Facebook group. Here are a few of the ones that still appeal to me and I think may have some potential:

As you can see, there's really no rhyme or reason to this grouping. Colors are completely disparate, design elements vary quite dramatically, but all look to me like I'd enjoy making the quilt. I suppose I should first concentrate on finishing a few of the MANY projects I already have in the works, which of course included actually quilting a dozen or so tops, but isn't it fun to think ahead?? 

Do you have a pattern or design you've been eyeing and are excited to try out? If so, I would love to see what's inspiring you today!
