Decisions, Decisions

I have long admired my sister-in-law's talent and work with stained glass.  She makes absolutely beautiful works of art. 

For a long time I have wanted a stained glass lamp.

I am very excited that I have spoken to her and we are going to work on a project together.  I am going to make a new quilt for our bed and she is going to make a stained glass lamp for me that will match the quilt.  This is awesome!!!  She is going to make the lamp match the quilt pattern I choose for my quilt.

Now I've got a problem.....I am having a difficult time deciding which quilt pattern I want to use!!!  I need to pick a pattern that can be made with fabric as well as with the glass.  This does, however, give me a good excuse to spend some time looking through my collection of quilt books and magazines while searching for the perfect choice!!! 

I'll keep you posted, and by all means, if you have any suggestions....please share!

Happy Quilting,
