Life as a Greenmonstr

Quilting and Other Facts of Life

Distractions

I know we all have at least one "alternate" project stashed away- you know, the one that's lurking in the box on the shelf, cut but not sewn, blocks pieced but not into rows, rows not melded into a top...mine has tiger faces and the tigers were snarling at me to GET THEM OUT OF THE BOX!  How could I ignore them?  So instead of working on the T-shirt quilt, I joined my tiger block rows into a quilt top.  It's the Warm Wishes pattern from Quiltmaker, but I made extra blocks for a finished size of 62 x 62 after I put the borders on. 

Now I have three projects going - blocks that need arranging for a Yellow Brick Road with Asian fabrics, the T-shirt quilt that needs sashing and borders, and the tigers that need borders.  All are lap size, so that's good.  Of course, life happens, and I need to make a small project for a birthday present for giving this weekend...better get busy!

Listen - I think I hear those alternate projects calling you!

It feels so good to finish them, too. But, there's always another project started that ends up becoming one of those UFO's.

Yes...I forgot that I have a Christmas wreath quilt stashed away in one of those boxes too.  I guess when I start hearing Christmas carols coming out of the box I'll get into it!
