Out of control...

This stack of quilt tops is waiting for backing, quilting and binding. And yet I keep starting new projects. I'm pretty sure there are others around here but not only am I too lazy to quilt, I'm also too lazy to look for missing quilt tops. I've got a new quilt I'm planning with all the great Heather Ross fabrics that I've received through my swaps. I'm trying to be good and not start working on it but then I have this one taunting me with comments like, "...it's a shame to let Heather sit on a shelf...". And this one sending me HR scraps and this one sending me HR FQs. Enablers, ya'll, I'm surrounded by them:0). I did start a new quilt top last night. It's a mini one so that doesn't count or does it?




Today was another good mail day. I received my block from Kris :

This block is much prettier in person. The picture doesn't do it justice. The hand sewing on this is flawless! She's got a great tutorial on how to do the circles here.
And thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you who commented about my circle quilt . I woke up to an in box filled with encouragement and it totally made my day. I guess we are all our own worst critics. I get disappointed when what's in my head doesn't translate exactly the way I want it to on fabric. I took another look at the quilt top today and I think I'm going to leave it alone. I'm kinda digging it now...

  1. Glad my block got to you safely and glad you like it! I agree that it doesn't quite look the same in pictures.

  2. that's what my wordless wed post today was about, ALL the projects I have started and abandoned, and all the quilts that ARE backed, pinned and ready to be quilted yet they sit here... I haven't really accomplished much this summer... but some goodie tops are rocking!

  5. That's why I only work on one quilt at a time! Oh, well I guess i'm actually working on two right now, but you know what I mean.

  6. I am like that with my cross stitching. So far, I have managed to keep my quilting under control.

  8. I have a stack of unquilted quilts, too. And I just have no desire to sit down and quilt them. *sigh*

  9. What a relief! Here I was feeling oh so guilty about having three quilt tops on the go. No need for guilt - I can just keep referring all my critics to the picture of your blog. BTW all your works-in-progress look gorgeous!
