Having not sewn in months I started wonder if and when I would feel motivated to create something new. I was happy to finish my bee blocks and I’ll be estatic to finally have Bob’s quilt done (sometime in the next couple days…) but I wondered when I would feel the urge to make something else. Not, mind you, that I don’t have a stack of “in progress” quilts to work on. I do it’s just they all need more fabric or more blocks or both. Once I order some new dark blue solids I can finish the back of my Bee Modern quilt but first I need to order the fabric… My single girl quilt is about 15 fabrics away from the point where I can start cutting. I ordered about 15 yards of fabric last night and I’m hoping that at least 3 or 4 will end up coordinating when I put them next to the rest of the fabric I’ve already chosen. I’m still waiting on a couple blocks for my Snip Sew Send quilt and then I’m sure I’ll still need to make some of my own blocks to make it queen sized, then I have to decide on the back. I have (I hope) all the fabrics and the pattern to make a quilt from Lantern Bloom but I’m just not inspired to work on it right now.
So what am I going to do? Make, or at least start, on a completely different quilt of course! I saw the photo above and fell in love. I have many of those fabrics and ordered a couple more to add to the mix. I also plan on ordering some kona cottons and maybe some shot cottons and then make a whirly gig quilt like this one. I think the fun pattern is the perfect complement to the Lizzy House prints. I don’t have anyone in mind for this quilt and I’m not sure what size I will make it. It seems like a good baby quilt but I think I’ll go ahead and make it twin sized if I have enough fabric. That way I can keep it and use it if I decide I can’t give it up.
J. and I are going to Va for the holidays so nothing will get done this week but by the time I get back the fabric I ordered should have arrived and I can get started this weekend. I can’t wait!
