I May Be In Big Trouble


I have a hexi problem! I just made my 2018 UFO Challenge List and 5 are hexi quilts with another being a hand pieced quilt that all need to be finished. So why am I even thinking of starting something new??? Here's my logical reason---I need to learn something new. There, that's the best I can do. If I were being honest with myself, I would simply say just because I want to!

Now my mind is all consumed with a new hexie project. Because you know I have no plans to start any new quilts in 2018. Hahahaha, I am so funny.

This morning I'm reading Mary's blog-Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!  I get sucked in to how she is piecing her hexies on her machine. This is not my first time reading her blog. I don't know why I reacted to it like I did today. But I'm fine with my reaction. It shows how passionate I am about quilting.

OMG, I am in so deep. I quickly go to Marti Michell's website and order Set H for 3" hexies and I needed a corner trimmer so I can use some of my own templates.  

Now I will wait for a shipping notice and then stalk the mailbox. I am going to do my homework and learn Mary's method Set-In Piecing Simplified. And I'm going to practice. Can you tell I'm excited.!!

In the meantime, I'm going to finish clue 4 to On Ringo Lake and work on my Tumblers quilt top so when that number is called for the UFO Challenge, it will be or be closer to a complete quilt top.

Hopefully your order will get here before the end of the year so you can start the new quilt in 2017. Hey, there aren't any quilt police, it's fine to start a new quilt if you want to. You go girl!

Hahaha, I thought for a second you were reading my Blog,lol. My Quilters ADD was out of control it seems in 2017. Even with all the Suggestive projects I RESISTED! Have some fun with even more Hexies when your order arrives.

Mary's set-in-piecing is brilliant! I use it when sewing my Glitter blocks and my hexie stars. I always tell myself I'm going to do more of those kinds of projects by hand, but I know full well the only way I'm going to get them done is by machine...
Enjoy your new project!

I love your blog posts....ha ha! I know I will start new projects, even though I have a very long list on UFO's. It's just how I am wired....

How appropriate to have a picture of a squirrel. They are hard workers and excellent at storing nuts and then finding them again. No one has ever told a squirrel not to start another quilt, I mean, store another nut. So enjoy!
