1. When picking fabrics/colors for a project do you rely on the shop's employees or bring a friend along to help in decision making? Neither, really. Well, my mom used to put her two cents in, god knows, and sometimes I even listened to her! - but mostly I pick what *I* want and don't let anybody influence me too much. I have very definite opinions about color.

2. What excites you when walking the first time into a new quilt store? Colors

3. Do you make seasonal quilts? Yup. I'll put a picture of the last one I did below. I have also made Christmas ones once or twice.

4. How many projects do you have going on right now? I'm in the middle of packing up to move, so real quilting projects are on the back burner til that's done.

5. What is this weekend's project? Packing, mostly. I might sort out fabric, some. Also I have an awful lot of fabric that needs to be washed, I could start on that!

Autumn leaves wallhanging

Long-term project list (updated)
1. unfinished community service quilt (just needs the quilting finished, and it's ready to go)
2. green triangle quilt - needs pinning and quilting
3. Ohio star sampler - 8 of 12 blocks done
4. t-shirt quilt - start cutting the t-shirts apart and putting stabilizer on them, and then see where it stands
5. Tutti Frutti quilt (from a kit that was given to me - good baby quilt)
6. Two, count 'em, two sets of swap blocks - need to be assembled and quilted (here's one of them - the other is fall colors)
7. Poetry wallhanging (the setting in that picture is probably not what I'm going to do in the end, I was just sticking them up on the wall as I went!) - I think the blocks are finished
8. Indigo log cabin
9. The fabled pink quilt, which is only a pile of fabric right now - enough fabric for several quilts, actually. I think I may start out with triangles again on this one, and go from there. This pile of fabric probably has some Quilt Pink blocks in its future, too, although that's not what started it!

Also, decide what to do with...
- Mom's few UFOs - she only had a couple (she was big on finishing things)
- quilt top from my grandmother's house (I bet my grandmother didn't make it, but I have no idea who did!)
- Cuppaz blocks - I think I still have 20 or so, and I need to make something with the remaining ones
- crazy quilt blocks - I have 3, maybe make a 4th and then finish? or make a table runner with the 3?
- leftover green squares from triangle quilt - I have lots of these! And also some HSTs.

Note that this is not intended in any way to be an October to-do list! It'll be a miracle if I even get the sewing room decently unpacked in October. Maybe in November I might possibly get a reasonable amount of quilting done!
