too much new stuff

Thanks for all your kind comments!! A couple friends helped me decide on one of the prints and now that both the "funny shapes" match, I am much happier with the block.I have not been very disciplined lately. I've started 3 new projects in the last week. I haven't got too far on any of them yet. I don't know how I'll ever get to the end of my ufo's if this is what I do. :0)

I have been wanting to make this scrappy blue quilt ever since I bought Kathleen Tracy's book "Remembering Adelia". I've had lots of fun rummaging through my stash choosing fabric. I have only one block made so far and I sized it down from 12 inches to 8 to make a smaller quilt.

I won a giveaway over at Megan's blog. She sent these 8 beautifully appliqued setting triangles and a stack of lovely blue fabrics to go with them. I don't know what I'll make with them yet - they will have to wait until after Christmas I think. Thanks Megan!

Happy Quilting!!

What beautiful projects! I'm loving those appliqued setting triangles, and their partner fabrics. And I SOOOO want to start Civil War Bride :-) Got the Baltimore Halloween BOM in the mail today -- another I want to delve into. What shall we do, Janet!?! LOL Keep on quilting, I suppose!! (At leave we're not driving while we do! LOL)
Blessings,
Mary Lou

I love the changes you made to your block. It turned out wonderfully.

I can't believe how quickly you've started on the stars. Wow, you have been busy.

So.... Where's the table runner!!! :)

I really think I should stop reading blogs because I keep being reminded of projects I would like to make! There are quite a few little quilts in "Remembering Adelia" I'd like to make.

Hey...CWB#2 looks fabulous! I always thought of those funky shaped things to be buds that are about to open, but who knows!! When I did my bride, I had trouble discerning those weird leaves (or birds or whatver they are) in the upper corners on block#1. I finally decided on leaves and tucked them behind the flowers.

Congrats on winning that beautiful project in motion...I remember drooling over that when she announced her give-away. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I hope your daughter (?) keeps going with the triangle project. If she can tackle that, she can do practically anything!

Janet your projects are beautiful especially the one with the leaves.

Love that blue scrappy star - can't wait to see it once you start -
Glad I'm not the only one working and starting multiple projects!

Love the change to the block...really pretty. What a great win, it will be fun seeing what you come up with.

I had to laugh at your lack of dicipline but then variety IS the spice of life LOL.

Gorgeous projects going on at yours!!!

Loved the last version of your block - but I agree that the new one is even better! The blue block is awesome - love, love that green you used! Isn't the Amelia book wonderful? Gave it to my mom for her 70th birthday.

Can one a a quilter and not have UFO's? I don't think so! :)

Oh, I see now the changes you made to your block. I kept thinking this was an old post and then I scrolled down and saw some new things.
What a great win. Love those blues.
I am so bad about starting new projects. It makes quilting interesting.
