200th Post - Thinking about the next year of designs and a giveaway

This last week I've been working on getting the next two blocks made for my BOM and getting the patterns written so that I can send them to my pattern tester with plenty of time.

And in realizing that I'm now half way through the year for the BOM, I started to think about what I want to design next.   Current options include the following:
           1.  A new Block-Of-Month, but a smaller version - maybe a toddler sized quilt.
           2.  A Mystery quilt that would be completed over 3-4 months
           3.  Maybe some other choice I haven't thought of yet, lol

I'd love to hear back from anyone reading my blog to hear which of the options that I've listed, or other ideas that you might, would be most interesting to you.   So if you'd leave me a comment letting me know your thoughts I'd love to hear what you have to say!

And in honor of my 200th post, I'm going to be giving away a pincushion made with a couple of orphan blocks to the winner of a random drawing from all those who leave comments on this post.   Leave me a comment by May 10th to enter the giveaway.  And be sure to leave me an email if your blogger id does not have a means to contact you!

1. For the opportunities I have to work with my quilt designs and all the fun I have with it.
2. For the possibilities to have my designs published.

I can go either way. I like the idea of doing the mystery over time, so I'd actually get it done. Love the look of your orphan pincushion, too! Thanks for the chance to win. dezertsuz at gmail

Happy 200th! That is very awesome! As to what would be good to see next, I have to vote for a smaller project. Life is very busy and it's hard to find the time to work on your wonderful designs. That is also why I'm not a fan of mystery quilts. It's nice to have everything all at once so I can work it into my schedule.

For some reason, I seem to lose track of BOM's. I'd love a mystery quilt....

I prefer small projects. I do charity quilts usually baby size. Thanks for all you do.
