Temptation!



No new projects! No new projects!  I know I've said, "No new projects", but what's a gal to do. Temptation is hitting from all sides. Bonnie Hunter is starting a new mystery quilt on April 1st. I was able to resist the mystery quilt she did a couple of months back. Carolina Crossroads is one spectacular quilt, but I resisted that one. I did so enjoy the mystery quilt that my guild did several years ago. I did complete it in the past couple of weeks. I even looked at my stash. Surprisingly, I have the right fabric to do the new mystery quilt, Orange Crush. I have some neat orange left over from the raffle quilt that I made for my son's marching band. I have lots of green, blue and black. What do I do? 

That's not the only temptation starring me in the face. The Fat Quarter Shop announced a new kit in their e-mail this morning. It's made in one of my favorite patterns, the bear paw. It's also in the colors that I love. I don't have a quilt with the bear paw block. Ok. .... I can resist this one. I do have some neat bear paw patterns in my files from quilting magazines. I think I can probably find fat quarters in my sewing room in these colors. It's a dream, an inspiration. A  maybe.....

OK, I've just been deleting the emails from the Fat Quarter Shop but this quilt is beautiful. My mom was just saying she needed to make another Bear Paw quilt - maybe this would be a good Mother's Day present.

Now here's the deal....new season, new project...all the justification that you need...go for it. I saw that pattern from Fat Quarter this morning too...but I have a pile of fabric from there that came last week, remember? Hey,new season, new project. I'm good to go!

I would love to do a bear paw quilt also. We need to get Pat to design one for us so we can use our stash!!!! The mystery quilt sounds like fun but what colors to use??? Orange is not my color. Will have to ponder this temptation...Let me know what you decide.

Hey there. I am resisting this time around as I did for the CC mystery. I want to finish my UFOs then I am gonna do one of her mysteries. I am saving instructios!

Bearpaw quilt block are so fun to make and anything scrappy agrees with me. But I got to finish up some UFO's too, and it is such a great feeling when you can say DONE. Hang tuff - finish stuff (but keep a list, lol).

Well...you just have to join in the fun of course! You have all the fabric, so you're ready to sew!
Look at it this way - you are helping to reduce your stash!
