Quilters ADD

I had a bit of quilts ADD this week.  Didn't have much time to spend sewing so when I did I just fluttered from project to project. Hmmm maybe if I get a little done here and a little done there, one of this days I'll have a big bang of finishes!!  Seriously look at that design wall, someone really needs to find a bit of focus huh???

From left to right - Common Bride, yep it's back out, and I actually worked on it.  Shirtings QSTs, Black Sea, Old Friends BOM.  Common Bride I got back out.  It was stalled on the applique.  I really wanted to do "real" applique, but turns out I don't like it so much.  I do like fusible applique so I decided fusible it is.  Done is better than waiting until I get in the mood for "real" applique. Which turns out can be quite a long time....


I'm trying to tone down the shirtings QSTs with the same color all the way around.  They are all stripes and this just may not go the way I want it to, but I'm trying.

And then there's Black Sea (Aegan Sea done n black and grey).  See that big star?  It's wrong, but I really like it.  No idea what so ever what I will do with it, but it's there just waiting for inspiration.  The three smaller ones are just the right size.  Three down, six more to go.   Remember that one lonely little twosie?   Well it's got some friends and some bigger friends.  Making progress on those too.


Last is the Old Friends BOM from Calico Girls, Block 5 done, I'm almost 1/2 way there.  Block six just came out but didn't get to that.  I've started on those cute little nine patches too, half of those are done.


Check out all the linky parties, lots of inspiration out there.  Wonder if I'll find some focus checking out the linky parties, I sure hope so!

  4. I don't know.....having more than one project going at a time, oddly motivates me. I think I like the variety as it keeps me from getting bored. I too like how you use the clips...good idea! I spent the weekend traveling and visiting the grandbaby...so no sewing at all!

  7. Old Friends has been on my list and yours is gorgeous. And there is no "right" way to applique! Fusible is still right so don't' let that get to you. I love have ADD! I never get bored!

  8. OMG, look how well ORGANIZED you are! As the wife of a truly ADHD husband and mother of two ADHD sons, I can assure you that there would be no way you could actually be able to coordinate all of those different projects successfully if you actually did have ADHD. You would have all of the pieces for those projects mixed together, spread out all over the house in different rooms, mixed up in piles of old mail and laundry. Oddly, your seam ripper would be in the freezer and you would have no recollection of putting it there. It takes some serious executive functioning and task management skills to have so many projects brewing and be able to switch smoothly from one project to the next! :-) I'm loving your sawtooth stars and your Old Friends blocks!
