Scrappy Quilt

I have been working on this small scrappy quilt. I was unhappy with it's size/proportions and so started on something else (After throwing this across the room of course. Gosh I'm grumpy sometimes!) which is how I like to do it. I work on something until I strike a problem. Then I start something new! Today as it hung over my ironing board I looked at it and thought about it. See, it's a scrappy quilt and this is all the fabric I have, cause they were just scraps. Anyway, I decided to put a border on it and even found a fabric to do it. I have cut the border out and will probably sew it on later tonight. So, scrappy quilt resolved. This happened because the other quilt struck a problem too. I so badly wanted to start a third project (starting is THE best!) but thought I should probably finish something! Anyway, the second project is a scrappy one too. I spread that one out on my bed this morning and after much thought have resolved that one too! I feel like a miracle worker today, although I am not any further advanced physically than I was last night. See, perception is so important! So tomorrow I can sew and sew and sew and sew.....

Yep...I'm a grumpy bum sometimes too. (actually - a lot)

But...you solved two problems in ONE day so as far as I'm concerned you are the Queen of problem solving. All hail the Queen.

Have fun actually sewing !

The quilt so far looks fantabulous!

Buying fabrics and starting a quilt is the best part... I’m hormonal grumpy sometimes (a lot)... LOL!

So in a couple of days you will be able to start your October OPAM list. Starting new projects is the best thing, all the excitement and planning, buying the fabric, my fingers are itching already.

I am all about the starting of projects! It's the finishing that is a challenge for me. I love the buying of supplies - I'm addicted to supplies. I lay it all out and ooo and ahhh over it - and then there is the starting of the project - that first block of fabulousness...and then I get bored and I'll want to start something new. I like how your scrappy quilt is coming together - glad you were able to work out the problem. x mary :O)

Starting new projects is just the BEST! I particularly enjoy planning which fabrics to put where and often change my mind at this stage. I have always found that a "deadline" is amazing for achieving finishes to projects. Happy stitching!

I always have trouble doing a scrappy quilt. I have a big stash but then cant bring myself to use the fabric cuz it's too good to use.So then i go out and just have to buy more fabric !!I'm enjoying looking at the red and white quilts you have been doing.
