Starting A Third, er, Fourth Quilt...Or Is It Fifth??

When one's quilting thread doesn't arrive in one's
idea of a timely manner, one shall start another quilt.

And so she did.
(This is how UFO's get started, isn't it?)
I'm using mostly fabrics from Bonnie and Camille's
"Little Snippets", the fat quarter set that I won.

Months later, I'm still giddy over it.
With 40 fat quarters, I'm really hoping to make
another quilt with these as well.

"Granny's Stars" from: Love of Quilting Aug 2009 Issue

I know I need to wait till next year for this one but
I do love it. Right on down to the hand applique.

Because I'm a "1 or 2 projects at a time" kinda
person, I always feel like I need to fess up when
I exceed that.  Or maybe it's really just about
making a list and a game plan but either way:
I technically have 4 quilts going right now.

DS's quilt
(currently quilting)

30's Irish Chain
(waiting in line for quilting)

Dresden Irish Chain [above]
(the real culprit in this whole thing)

And then my old side project:
(the innocent bystander)

At least two of them are being quilted and should be
completed asap so this period of too much on the
front burner should be short-lived.  

If I'm being really honest I do have one other UFO
that I brilliantly [sarcasm] chose to hand-quilt--which
is why I never count it.  I started it about 15 years
ago and just bring it out whenever I feel like it.

In all, it has been a good time in the sewing room
 lately and it's not even fall yet!  It will be interesting
to see how many I end up getting made this year. 

Happy quilting!

Squirrel! Have fun with the new quilt while you wait on the thread.

I don't count quilts that just need to be quilted...they nag at me, but I don't count them as a UFO. Yummy fabric win, I like the dresden start.

Oh, dear, you really have taken leave of your senses! Another project, whatever for? This is all part of the empty nest syndrome, which happens when our busy schedules empty, and fabric thread and rotary cutters taken center stage in our lives! You caught the bug. Never fear no cure is needed because it is a worthwhile condition.
Love the new dresden plates. Iso love that pattern.
