Ok I think have perfected the art of procrastination. I wanted so badly to start Common Bride. I have the pattern, have the fabrics laying out nice and neatly on in a sew room that had scraps under control thanks to Mission Scrap Attack. But I'm afraid, I'm scared, I'm not quite but almost terrified of starting this absolutely wonderfully beautiful quilt. I will go to drastic measures to not start it. Such as curved piecing. Yep I got 25 more blocks on Center of My Universe. I like how it's looking Seriously curved piecing has nothing on Y seams - yes the dreaded *Y-Seam*. I really need to learn how to to do them.
And then I got bored with the curved piecing, ya can only do so much with that. I still have 50 blocks to go....but hey I'm 25 closer than where I was before :) And then I saw that it's time again for 100 Quilts for Kids. I LOVE making kid quilts. They aren't too big, they're bright and cheery - and then keep me from starting Common Bride. So out came all the strings I have . I huge tub full. I made 8 giant 18 inch blocks and you can't even tell there are any missing. Funny I like the Boy quilt and my husband likes the girl quilt. Either way, plenty more strings so we'll have at least a couple more boy quilts and a couple more girl quilts. I may be able to get 6 out of the strings and 4 charm packs I found laying around. Maybe more. All I know is that those 18 inch blocks didn't use up nearly enough strings.
