I have a few projects going. That alone is a red flag. I'm a start one, finish one type of gal and for me to have several projects in the works tells me that I cannot focus. Like when you are in an accident, incident,
I am actively working on my Bali Wedding Star, Opening Day and my new Applique project. I also have my Two Piece Puzzle that is on the sidelines.
Well yesterday, instead of working on any of these projects, I started on something else.
A few weeks ago I was at my local quilt store and they were having a Fig Tree & Co trunk show. On the wall was this quilt:
I had seen the quilt online both on Johanna's website (picture above was hijacked from her site) and also at Sherri's site (I believe she actually pieced this beauty). But I was not very intrigued. I have basket issues that have left me scarred. So, I was very surprised when I saw this quilt on the wall and fell in love.
I immediately bought the pattern.
I had to have it.
I already had a Fat Eighth of Breakfast at Tiffany's that was calling to be used in a project.
On Saturday, I went back to my local quilt shop to pick up some of this yumminess for my Applique project (I sooo love this line. I can't believe I didn't buy a FE or FQ bundle - now I can only pick up bits and pieces of it. I feel like crying!) and while I was there I found some Fig Tree yardage that screamed to be used in the border of Petit Fours.
Well, if I already HAD the borders, might as well start up on the blocks.
This small blocks come together sooo quick! I had 7 done in no time. A little something extra... the handle is appliqued on. I kept telling myself that I was practicing for the BIG applique project!
I think they are coming out okay.
Anyway. I started on this project now. I feel guilty as hell. I just need to get something done. Something finished. Then I can relax a bit, but until then, the lack of finished projects will drive me crazy!!
Have you ever felt like this?
