I have M.P.D.!

Multiple Project Disorder!  I have never been a one-project-at-a-time type of quilter.  Not only am I hyper, I'm easily excitable and very passionate about quilting, which means I want to make nearly every quilt I see and I will never attain this goal by working on one project at a time!

I'm still working on the kaleidoscope/hexagon quilt. The plan is for it to be king size so it's going to take awhile to complete.  In the meantime, I need something...or a couple of things...or a few things, that will come together quicker. Most of what drives this passion is completing a project.  So when I need a break from sewing triangles together for this, or cutting strips for that, I switch to something else. Something will bear fruit sooner than later. I usually have 3-4 projects going at once. With this being said, I've never had an incomplete project for more than a couple of months.  I don't start so many that I never finish one. Or should I say, it hasn't happened yet.  I can't even imagine not finishing something I've started.

Here are some current projects.

Kaleidoscope/Hexagon Quilt

I'm still sewing the triangles together. I started w/roughly 200 stacks, I've about 90 left.

 From each stack of six triangles, I sew 2 groups of three.  After sewing the 2 groups of three, the seams are pressed open.

I've pressed quite a few so far, but I'll wait to press the rest when I'm finished sewing all the groups together.

Mondo Bag

I actually finished this last night.  I worked on it for about 4 days, 30-90 mins each time.  I do work a full time day job, but I'm single, and only have an 18yrs old left at I have a lot of time to sew/quilt. =)

Cuttin' Corners Quilt

I made this Cuttin' Corners Quilt in one weekend a couple of weeks ago! I also used this machine binding tutorial.

                                Tutti Fruitti Strip Tease Quilt

I'm working on this Strip Tease Quilt  for a cousin who could use some cheering up. Hoping to have it finished by this weekend and going to send for her birthday, Oct 5.

Check Mate!

Check Mate is another easy one from QITR. I've only completed the top so far.

And lastly, I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to add borders to my Fun w/Bricks Scrap Quilt.

Until next post, Happy Quilting!  =)

A Thread for Life
Be strong in the Lord and
never give up hope.
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got his hand on you so 
don't live life in fear
forgive and forget
but don't forget why you're here
Take your time and pray
Thank God for each day
His love will find a way
Come find peace in the Father
