Funny, I said the same thing this morning when I started working on yet another quilt for myself (when in fact I was supposed to be making a quilt for a gift...). Oops! I love your new quilt already - I might have to give that pattern a try...

I love it, your eye for color is the best. Have fun.

You may not have time for it, but we're all thankful you take these things on anyway! Where would we get our inspiration from otherwise!

I'm about to join you in that craziness. Finals start in about a week and fabric keeps calling my name.

HobbyMommy said...

You are a funny girl!! It looks like it is going to be too cute!!

Erin said...

Cute so far! Know what you mean about not having time... I'm working on gifts, but not for me, unfortunately! Some are going to be those cute checkbook covers you did the tutorial on awhile back! Already made one, & I even added vinyl pieces to hold the register pages back with, and for duplicate checks!

Threeundertwo said...

I love those colors. I always get the urge during this busy season too. I have a lot of Christmas quilts around here now.

Heather said...

Love the pattern and fabric you are using. Have fun making 'your' quilt!

grneydsilversmith said...

it's fantastic so far! i wish i had the time to quilt like you do - i handquilt...takes so much longer. but i did go crazy this summer with friends/relatives and their weddings and babies and got 3 done. 2 more to start before i can do one for me. one day - a christmas quilt with the stash i've had for 5 years.

Katherine said...

Sweet as candy - this one. You're making me swoon using all those yummy dots like this. Can't wait to see how this finishes.

Famous last words, "I don't have time for this." ha ha ha!

It's looking good so far. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. I bet you'll be finished before the weekend is over. :-) No pressure.

Dorothee said...

You and me both, but is that ever stopping us? I like the look of the design, can't wait to see the finished product. I have two charm packs and a layer cake of Dandelion Girl that am undecided what to do with so this might be a winner ....

It's going to be worth it I bet. Looks good already!
