What should we tackle next?

I am sorry to say there won’t be a Paradigm Shift post today. I have another work trip next week so I wasn’t able to get one up today.  The good news is it is my last scheduled work trip for the year; most likely until next April so I will be back on somewhat of a normal schedule.  I do, however, plan to have a Paradigm Shift Tutorial up by next weekend.

With that said, The Paradigm Shift Quilt and tutorials are inevitably coming to an end.  The good news I’m introducing our next project!!!

I am planning on making my dad a quilt for Christmas or his Birthday which is in January. We’ll see how it all shakes out.  I have an idea for the color scheme, but couldn’t decide on the pattern.  Then it hit me! You should help me choose since you may have a vested interest in this process as well.  My dad loves all things blue and gray so I’m thinking about a batik Bali Pop from Fat Quarter Shop. Pretty perfect, right?  It is looking more and more like this will be a Birthday Quilt. (That would give me until 1/21) We’ll see if it ends up making the final cut.
