Moving into February

WOW! January flew by! Look at all the fabric that just arrived!

Alison Glass SunPrints 2018 have arrived and are going fast! I'm really scared that I may sell out of this one before I get to sew anything for me!

New Dimples including fun metallics like this Rose Gold

This fabric is from Studio E and called Aflutter. Those gorgeous colors definitely make my heart and soul flutter!
Maintaining Momentum with One Step Forward and Two Steps Backward
So how are you doing with your unfinished projects? I was recently at a quilt guild where a fellow quilter admitted to being a Quilt-o-holic and having quilting ADHD because of the number of unfinished quilting projects she had. I don't really see that as a bad thing as long as you commit to finish your projects. I think we need the inspiration of new projects and ideas to help us keep moving forward.  Meanwhile we just need to take a few steps back to complete a project or two and have the satisfaction of a FINISHED project!
Here are a couple that I finished and a couple of new ones:

Just finished this quilt using the Organica fabric line
and the Creative Grids 90 degree double strip ruler.
Can you tell where I added on a few rows?

Had to slip this one because it is the ultimate cheater quilt!
It comes as a panel and all I had to do was quilt and bind it!
There are only three of these panels left!

I went to Florida to take this class from David Sirotta and came back with just a couple of blocks. 
He's coming to Mid-Atlantic Feb. 22-25th so my goal is to complete the Storm at Sea wall hanging in pink to show him.

I just had to take this class last week from Erin Underwood, the creator of multiple Creative Grids ruler including the 22.5 degree.
Obviously, I didn't get very far, but it will eventually be an Optical Illusion. I did pick up a few extra patterns!

So do you need to finish something or just a little inspiration? Take a class!
