Is it just me....

Or is there anyone else who'd much rather put new color and fabric combinations together instead of working on projects in progress???

I've got FOUR quilts I need to finish up as Christmas presents, and which I started months ago...

But instead I've started more. The quilt for my sister-in-law, the Tetris quilt, the nine-patch blocks I've started...and I just put together four new color combinations from my stash.

Oops.

In the meantime, here are my nine patches:

I only had to pick out two or three strips, but overall, they look pretty good! I have charm squares of the same fabric - but the nine patches are six inches and the charms are five...so I think I'm going to put white sashing around the edges of the charms, then white all around ALL the squares. Thoughts?

  1. It is very interesting for me to see a quilt in progress. It is something I have always wondered about. You use a machine, or do it by hand?
