Hands 2 Help update and Design Wall Monday

I received some wonderful fabrics from Diane at Life Scraps


I'm thinking about adding these to the mix


I have a couple of patterns that I'm thinking about, but haven't settled one yet.    The first one is from Quiltmaker magazine, called Raspberry desert.  I just love this pattern.  But I think I like Urban Cabins below a bit more and with these fabrics.  Terry Atkinson is the maker of Urban Cabins.  So what to do you think?  Which one?  Maybe something different?  Different colors to add to the fabrics???  I love the process of starting a new quilt.
Oh but that's not all.  All four girls were home this weekend and look what we got done!!  I just love the stash closet re-organized.  It's so much easier to find fabrics, pull them out and get them back where they belong.  You can see the before picture here  What a nice Easter surprise for me!!    
Random fact:  My kids, 31, 27, 19 and 17 still like to hunt for Easter eggs.  Yep that's right, when will it end?? This year the three grandsons are old enough and they hid the eggs for the "older kids".                                                                                                                                                                                             And what do you do with the left over panels from a a Bargello?  I finished the top of Tyler's Bargello .  I cut up the left over panel pieces for QST and pinwheels and came up with this.    I used every last bit of those panels, just enough.  I'll add a black border then a border of strips from the material that is left and another black border. Two quilts for the price of one!

  1. I love the Urban Cabins pattern and with the textured fabrics and a little color thrown in - how exciting! Wow, you have a fantastic looking stash now - great job girls. We never did egg hunts at home - the community library and the school held them.

  2. I am a grannie and still like to hunt eggs~! Urban Cabins would be my choice. Love all organic colors you are putting together. I can't wait to see everyone's H2H quilts come together.

  6. I like Raspberry Dessert. How fun to have an egg hunt with grown children. BTW, could you send them over here to organize my stash? Yours looks great.

    I gave my 26 yo daughter an easter basket (and her husband too!) and hers contained Bubble Wands! We blew bubbles all after noon!

  8. We did an Easter egg hunt for my granddaughter for the first time yesterday. She is 2. It was so fun and sweet to watch her. My girls all wanted to know where their baskets were too and they are 17, 20 and 23. Lucky for them I had things ready :)
