Spudgrandma's Thoughts on Quilting & Life!

My Quilt Obsession?

Am I obsessed?  I finished my 2nd NICU quilt and I'm getting faster at this.  But, I tossed and turned all night thinking about my next quilt. I am starting an Irish Chain, I actually started the process as I was finishing up the NICU quilt, and I planned it all night long. LOL.

My frame is supposed to arrive today and, even though I will probably not have it set up right away, I did not sleep much for all the planning.  I'm trying to decide what to use on it for a machine.  I cannot afford a long-arm and even a midarm, at this point, is out of the question.  I had planed on using my Janome 6600, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that I did not want to wear out my Janome, I love it for sewing and piecing.  So now I am considering a Brother 1500 and then when I can I will have it stretched.  Hopefully, by then I will have the frame figured out and have some quilt tops ready to go.

I'm starting to think that I may love the planning and dreaming as much as the doing.
