Quilty dreams

I purchased this fabulous Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric last Spring from http://www.fabric.com/ knowing it was destined to become my first quilt. The gorgeous (and my favorite) aqua and red paisley fabric will be the backing, and the brown semi-floral fabric will be the border.

I'm not exactly sure what pattern I will use, but I do want to keep it simple. I think 10x10 in. squares will show off the large print fabrics nicely. I like this pattern by Thimble Blossoms called A Piece of Cake.

I've also considered this ragged squares quilt by Crazy Mom Quilts. She's got tons of great tutorials out there just begging to be tried.

And here is a great machine quilting tutorial by Anyone Can Quilt.
Why don't we give quilting a try together?
