I noticed that quite a number of bloggers are posting what is on their design wall, so I decided to join in the fun. Eagerly, I grabbed my camera and ran to my sewing room, only to discover that my design wall looked like this (above). It occurred to me: I think I might have an attention problem. I start a lot of projects (there are so many wonderful ones that I must try), and don’t seem to finish anything.

I tried this block when I saw Scraps and Strings and Empire BOM posts about their Ticker Tape quilts. It looked like so much fun and it was. I love this block and put it on the design wall, planning to make more. However….

Before I could make another block, I saw the Teens & Tweens, Quilting Fun with Family & Friends book by by Anita Shackelford and Jennifer Perdue and had to try a block that I saw in there. I liked the above, and planned to make more as I am sure my granddaughter would love it. However…

I had a Fiber Arts meeting that night and became inspired to try rusting fabric. I came right home and made this(above). Do you see the fabric beads? Click on the picture for a closer view. You can learn how to make them by going to Sew Many Ways. Karen has a great tutorial for making fabric beads! I had fun with this project but don’t know what to do with it, so it stays on my design wall…waiting for inspiration. However…

I got a pattern on a small card called The Cut-Up by Pieced Tree Patterns. I thought this would be a nice way to use up those 30’s fabrics. Because of the fabrics I used, however, I thought the blocks looked dull, so I had to make some bright flowers to appliqué on them.

Before I could finish another block, I saw a new blog 15 Minutes Play by Bumbe Beans and had to try using up some of those scrap. Then…

These flowers keep calling out to me. They were left over when I made the quilt from Kim Schaefer’s book Flower Festival. I love them and can’t toss them, so I do plan to make a table runner with them (maybe). Anyway, I plan to use them someday.
To top it off, I went to the library today and picked up another quilt book, “City Quilts,” by Cherri House and have to try something in there. I love modern quilts. So, it’s off to the Attic Window Quilt Shop to get some plain fabrics.
So, tell me…is it just me, or do all quilters have this problem?
Saw this on the Quilting Board. Liesl Made has a tutorial for a folded star hot pad. Check it out.

Stay Positive!
