Weekly Challenge – July 9

Yup! I’m back to fizzling out on my Weekly Challenge.

This week somehow escaped me in a blur . . .

. . . and when I went to actually work on the project I said I would . . .

. . . I got horribly sidetracked and ended up . . .

. . . starting a new quilt . . .

. . . because that just made perfect sense in the grand scheme of things!

I’m making a Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt . . .

. . . and a Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler Quilt . . .

. . . because apparently I love making thousands of little 6″ blocks from itty bitty pieces!

(Actually, I do — it’s a sickness of mine — ask Amanda — who, by the way, is having a give-away over on her blog you might want to get in on.)

So I had the bright idea that since I’m chugging away (however slowly) on those two quilts, I’d just throw one more sampler quilt into the mix, and it would hardly be noticeable, right? Right.

So I started a Civil War Diary Sampler quilt, too . . .

Now I’m behind on all three of these quilts, which makes me feel infinitely better about them all. 

So for next week’s Weekly Challenge, my goal is to actually have some new blocks from these 3 projects to show you pictures of. Intervention could be necessary, but there’s no one around to intervene (if My Cowboy doesn’t find out), so I’m free to continue down the path of insanity I have chosen for myself at the moment. Mwuhahaha! See you next week . . . What will YOU be doing?

  1. LOL! You’re a hoot! When in doubt – start a new project! That’s my take on the situation. I’ve eyed all three of those projects on more than one occasion – they are just lovely! And I’m cheering you on because I am only all too familiar with that path of insanity!

  2. Start of the week. Start a new quilt (or three). It makes sense to me.

    I NEED to get the blue scrap quilt finished. It is taking up floor space, a high premium around here.

    OK–I wrote it. Now I have to do it. Right?

  3. I can’t wait to see some blocks! I’m very intrigued by “The Farmer’s Wife” and almost bought it at retreat!

  4. I’m with you. Thousands of 6″ blocks in little tiny pieces is definitely my idea of fun. Anyone who is not a quilter would not understand! I can’t wait to see your blocks.
