I need a Plaid Intervention

It all started with Pulling out My Jacobs Ladder plaid quilt.... this was started in October of 2011 - Impera Magna says so.... she did this as a quilt a long, and I had to join in! But I am going to sort of blame her, she didn't put a due date on it....  ( just kidding...sort of)

When I pulled it out, I found a whole bucket load of plaids under the original blocks...

And then! Judy had a Quilt a Long  and I thought PLAIDS!!! I can do this in plaid.... I have half the blocks done.

And then!!! My Heartstrings group decided to do a brown centered block and I though PLAIDS!!   I have 24 blocks completely finished, and 24 are 1/2 way done.

And then!!  I was cutting 2 inch strips for my idea for a border for the Jacobs Ladder, and I read about Amy wanting to do another pineapple blossom quilt  ( a Bonnie Hunter design).... and I thought PLAIDS!!!  I now have all my centers cut, and a pile of plaid string.... oh boy


Does it sort of look like a plaid fabric store threw up on my cutting table?  Seriously.... A Plaid Intervention may be necessary... because this morning - after I was done Long-Arming for the morning... I found....

ANOTHER BAG OF PLAID FABRICS  .... and they are yummy!!!

I LOVE IT!

Go for it. It's meant to be. EMBRACE THE PLAID!

AND some irony... before reading your post, I had JUST pulled out a 2009 flimsy UFO that I am bound and determined to tackle towards a finish today......

.......PLAIDS!!!!

I LOVE all those plaids! Can't wait to see that you make with them. Knowing you it will be great!

You've got plaid on the brain, Girl. (I think you've got so much Testosterone at your house is why the plaid plague.) You need some flowers...LOL!

So many quilts, so little time, huh?

I never thought I'd get attached to plaids but after one plaid quilt completed, I'm seriously considering another... different pattern tho.

You can do it! Go, plaids!!!!

Too funny! You do have plaids. I shy away from them, because no matter how careful I cut, they still seem pulled in one direction or another.

I have one word for you......DELICIOUS!

I've got more plaids around here too that will eventually become HeartStrings blocks. I also did a large Drunkard's Path using my GO die that I love and it was quick!

Kate said...

Wow, that is a lot of plaid! But it sounds like you are enjoying all of them, so go for it.

But you can't go wrong with plaids! Just enjoy your plaid fetish! ;-)
