I've been corrupted, but by generosity and sweetness. I used to do one project at a time, and finish it. Now I belong to Yahoo quilting groups and blog, and I constantly see beautiful things, and I think I want to make that, too. I already have about 11 tops that need to be quilted, 9 are priorities, and I have several tops in progress, so what did I do, I started Amy's 2010 BOM, and now I couldn't help myself, I have also begun oh,
Fransson's Paintbox Quilt Along. My Iowa (Carolina) Christmas is at the stage of looking like 5 giant tablerunners, and yet, it is temporarily put aside while I do this week's 8 Paintbox blocks. Yesterday, I drove 50 miles to a quilt shop where they sell Fairy Frost, as I love the shinyness and have been coveting it. I don't think that the love of shiny objects is necessarily a character strength, but what can I do. Most people will be using jelly rolls for their solids, but I got 21 fat quarters, and plan on using them. I am hoping to get all the hopefully coordinating prints from my small stash and scraps, and the second picture is of my first week's choices. The bottom right is light yellow and black, and it matches the light yellow fairy frost perfectly to my eye, but doesn't show up well in the picture. I hesitated to blog about this, as I fear I may tempt others who have been similarly corrupted, but I had to share.
