Dream On Queen Quilt

Introducing "Dream On", a retro, funky quilt full of life!  Mrs.Singer, happily quilting away again, made quick work of my "Fit For a Princess" quilt, which upon completion received a new name, "Dream On."  She is a very sparkly, pretty quilt!

I also made two coordinating standard sized pillow shams out of the scraps.  I have a pile of half-square triangles left over from the block corners, and there are enough to make a lap quilt when I sash them with white!  To whittle my stash, I am doing my best to not put ANY pieces of a fabric collection back on the shelves, so I am committed to whipping up the coordinating lap quilt very soon!  I find I very rarely don't go back to little pieces of scraps and make anything with them, and they just sit around moping and feeling sorry for themselves.  I'm working hard to keep the grumbling down in the fabric closet!

My eyes really need a place to rest on a quilt, and the white strips provide the perfect balance for the super funky fabrics!
