The ideas and inspirations took too much of my time and then I was "absorbed" into another quilt. The design was finally decided and it is only a matter of STARTING it now. The first step is sometimes the hardest.
So, I have put that project on the back burner for the moment as, once again, Plan B has showed up.
My goal for February is to have all the blocks done for two different tops. Is that too much? In 28 days?
The first one is the BOM Westering Women. The main reason for this is that I need the fabrics. I mean, I usually set aside in a basket or box, the fabrics I intend to use on a project so I don't use them all up on something else.

|There's a lot of fabric here. The basket is more than half full and it measures 24 X 14 X 10 inches deep. AND it's starting to be a mess in there.|
Since the blocks from January to June were made, I need to finish July to December. I 've kept all the patterns on my computer so I can tackle this BOM anytime. Some blocks have lots of Y-seams or inset seams. Either way you call this, it is still "Yuck" to me. I might have to "reform" some of the units on certain blocks.

The second project is for a new quilt. Yes, I want to make a quilt for a little 17 month old boy. :^) This means I am starting ( ) another project. (at your discretion, you may insert "yet again" in the blank space.)
I would like something FAST but FUN. I am thinking an I-SPY kind of quilt. I am very inspired by Sarah's quilt seen here.
The cutting has started.
The stars will be a calm yellow.
Now I am not crazy and yes, I do need to sleep, so my goal is to only make the blocks. If I get beyond that, it'll be a bonus but 28 days can go by so fast.
Linking up with Patty at Elms Street Quilts for OMG!
Until next time ... I spy with my little eye ...
