So... I decided to organize......

Which is something I really shouldn't do!! We will call it inspiration and distraction and lets start a new project, and oh wait - should I work on that one too???

And ! Wow! I have a few piles and a lot of ideas, and I may have started some new things, and decided to finish some others - and its the BEST!!!

So let me walk you through the *projects* as they are......

This was  a HUGE box of strings strips and other pieces - I dumped it out

and now... It is this!!

Which Inspired me to have our QOV Sew group make some of....


and then!! Because we got a lot started 
and a lot finished
I kept working on them - 
and now
I have about 45 more in process
( you need 48 for a whole quilt)

( and don't look at that pile of log cabins behind the scrappy ones!! That's even another project!)

Before I can put them on my design wall
I need to finish this one!!
So they are all rowed now -
Just need to iron and sew the rows together

But then!!
In my stashbuster group - Liz is hosting a sew a long called Steppers
and you needed 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch bricks

and I had some plaid sitting in a bucket

and now I have a lot of bricks
ready for step 3

( I actually got step 2 - the bricks stitched - done!)

and then !
In my Quilt of Valor group
We are doing a  block for May-July
so I had to re draw the directions
( my other ones looked yuckky)
and of course!

I had to start sewing them too!

I don't even want to show you the projects I have planned under my sewing table,
cuz you will laugh and tease me
and then I just might have to start a nother project!!


I had better get to working on these so that they all don't have to be quilted at the same time!

Been there, done that!

Hahaha, you had several squirrels visiting you in this post! I love that you are just like the rest of us, hehe. I know every time I try to do a little clean up it just causes a rolling stone effect. But sometimes we need that to get our juices flowing!

I loved your pictures and comments. Now I want to dig around in my quilting space just for the fun of it!

It looks like you are having lots of fun 💗👌

Judy in Michigan said...

This frenzy is not unusual. I think most quilters work like you. Well, I do anyway!! Can we join Liz's QAL? Sounds interesting! Thanks.

Yvonne from Quilting Jetgirl said...

Sounds productive and like you made great progress!

Sounds like you're having lots of fun with all your projects - enjoy!!!

Debbie said...

I'm interested in Liz' sew along also. It sounds fun and simple.

Kate said...

You've made a great start on some fun projects.

Nann said...

One thing leads to another . . . and in this case the results are fun! I like the spiderweb/kaleido blocks.

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

I love when squirrel projects are so cute! You sound like you are having fun and that's what counts!

The risks of cleaning your sewing area. :) Looks like you have some fun projects to work on now.

Ranch Wife said...

The scraps are flying and your sewing machine must be smoking! Goodness you are on a roll! Please tell me that you are making a visible dent in your fabric stash.

Oh dear I hope this doesn't happen to me and I get all inspired to be organized... LOLOLOL!
