More quilt fabrics!

More quilting fabrics!

These I already sewed up into quilt fronts!
I especially like the pink-orange-yellow combo,but I think the blue/green combo will be perfect for a boy,don't you?

Quilt Fabrics found!

Here are some pics of some of the fabrics I am using to make quilts.
The pink and green are going to be a quilt with another,light pink fabric( that I don't have yet) as the back.
The red and green are only part of that quilt.I am going to look for a blue and a yellow solid fabrics to go with them and then I will use a white for the back.
Neither of these is going to be my bed quilt,though!I was going through my stash and found these!
What do you think?Will they be pretty?

My quilting challenge!

I have decided to make a quilt for our bed this year.
This is quite an undertaking for me as I do not really have the patience to cut out pieces of fabric,rearrange them and sew them back together;then add batting and backing and binding!Whew!
Why this is so tedious for me when I can crochet or knit for hours on end without getting bored or frustrated,I do not know!I could knit or crochet a bedspread no problem!
I am making a quilt instead because I have 3 cats and my beautiful Bates bedspread(if you are from Maine you know what a Bates is!) is much the worse from wear due to their claws.
I really admire quilters and hope anyone out there who quilts will offer advice as I undertake this new venture!
Pics will soon follow!
