On my to-do list...

Since completing the turquoise new wave quilt, I've been dragging it around and using it everywhere.  I love it so very much.  I wish I could put it on the bed, but it's not quite queen sized. (not that it stopped me)  So just as I was contemplating making a bed quilt, there in my feeds the next morning was the Naked Bed Challenge.  I figured it was as good as time as any!

I've slowly put together my Amy Butler Love collection knowing that I wanted to use these specifically for a bed quilt... and I've been staring at them for the past week figuring out what pattern I want to use.  There's a lot of large prints in the mix so I want to have it focused on that and not chop them up too small.  I still want it simple so it doesn't go all 'color vomit' as my friend likes to call it.

On another note.. at the recommendation of basically everyone in the LVMQG, posts in my feeds, and apparently the rest of the internet (how do you time that so well internet?!), I bought my first Aurifil cone today over at my local quilt shop:
