Oh yeah, to support my fabric junkie ways.... I sure wish there was some way around that! I have so many ideas swirling through my head, I'd like to be able to just stay home and work on quilts all day!
Yesterday I finished all the blocks for my Magic Star quilt made using my collection of Asian print fabrics. My quilt will be wider than the one pictured here because I felt those proportions looked "off." I saw this finished quilt at my guild's retreat last April. I already had my quilt cut out, and seeing it cemented my resolve to make it my next quilt project.
The resolve didn't last a heck of a long time, though. This is the most boring quilt in the whole, wide world. I had it up on my design wall 3 times and took it down to work on something else, but I finally made myself finish it. Well, I finished the blocks, anyway. I still have about 6 rows of blocks to sew together - I hate that part too! lol
When I'd taken Magic Star down from my design wall, I put up my Buttercream and Figs quilt to check the layout. I decided that I wanted to do a square quilt instead of the 3 block by 5 block quilt that I was planning. So I had to cut out an additional block last night, but I like the 4x4 layout much better for this quilt.
And as I was lying in bed last night, I had a great idea for some heart-shaped appliques of the Valentine quilt that will be next up in the rotation. Fun stuff!
