I know I'm not alone when I say that I love, love, love starting new projects. I always get so excited, pull out too much fabric, make a huge mess, and start cutting. There are just way too many ideas floating around in my head and thus, I tend to start more projects than I manage to finish.
This week, however, I was good, so good. I finished some of my wips (more on those later this week) and, as a reward, I let myself start a few new projects. Want to see?
I had a grand plan of making a quilt featuring my favorite quote. I was using a fantastic book Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci to lead me through these free pieced letters. Notice how I speak in past tense? Well, the quilt is definitely not happening any time soon. I just did not enjoy the process, so for now I'll be happy with my "think" block which I'm going to turn into a pillow for my girls' room.
I've also started sewing and trimming these HSTs for a new Churn Dash quilt. I think it will make a lovely Christmas present for my FIL.
This pile of 2" Christmas fabric squares makes me so happy. I feel like singing Christmas carols just looking at these lovelies.
