why finish stuff when you can start new things?
I'm drowning in quilt tops that either need quilting, backings made, or finishing with borders but I'm waiting to order a new roll of batting (putting it off somewhat in order to avoid the quilting, if I'm honest) and when new stuff pops up courtesy of Aneela it'd be rude not to start cutting it up and sewing it back together, wouldn't it?
People were all in a frenzy for Aneela's first fabric line with Moda at Market. It sold out at sample spree before I managed to pick any up. Which would have got me very upset had I not known I was getting some of my own (thank you Aneela - big kisses).
A layer cake and some kona coal - I'm sewing big crossy, windmilly blocks. It's a quick one to throw together, and would only take a day if I wasn't so easily distracted. It'd look great in smaller blocks made with charm packs as well. I'll do a tute one day next week when I get the quilt top finished.
Another thing that's busy distracting me is the quilt along over on Cara's blog. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 'manly' quilt she made for her husband so when she asked if I wanted to join in with her quilt along I jumped the chance. His Gingerness needs a new quilt since he got bunk beds, and I recently got the Dr Seuss fabrics from Robert Kaufman. Perfecto. Ginge and Daddy can use it to snuggle under to watch TV as well.
You can join in with the quilt along - just click here. She also has a giveaway to win 7 yards of kona solids of your choice for your quilt along quilt courtesy of Sue at Simply Solid on etsy.
