I have sooooo many projects that I really should be working on.
Last week I spent a little time in my sewing room combining fabric, patterns, and notions together in big ziplocs so that each project is all in one place. I actually went back to the store and bought more. That is how bad it was getting. And really, I need more bags. So, so sad.
But sometimes I don't want to do what I should.
I'd rather do what I want.
Do you ever get like that?
So when I should have been working on other things I was making quilt blocks instead.
Here are the 2 different quilts that I started.
First up some snowball blocks--in Fall prints and colors from some charm packs I bought at the thrift store.
I think I might put a border around each snowball so that I can get a bigger quilt.
Kinda excited about this one.
Then secondly I started some blocks that I have been mentally planning for a time. Originally I was going to try and recruit some friends and make another collaborative quilt. I changed my mind. At the time it felt too difficult to get people together and so I just started them myself.
This quilt pattern is from Block Party--The Modern Quilting Bee, Wonky Roman Stripe Block, pg. 50-56.
I need more blocks and have 2 other base colors in a lighter blue and a grey to combine all together. I think it will be nice when it is all said and done.
