Multi-tasking or ADD?


I have finished four more hexagon flowers so now I have 13 done and am still stitching on them every evening. I am having fun working on three terrific BOM projects (Verandah Views, 12 Months of Baskets, and Gail’s A Christmas Wish). Two miniature quilts are in progress (a bow tie and a Baltimore Album). I have siggy blocks going and participating in a quilt along and desperately want to join another one. My Butterfly Garden that I started 9 months ago needs just three more little blocks to embroider. And there is a quilt for my bedroom wall that needs quilted along with a table runner.


Sigh....So much going on but here I go again…


I have been so inspired by Sherri and Vanessa and Kaaren’s Dresden quilt blocks that I couldn’t help myself, I am starting another project. I bought a Moda scrap bag a while ago and it seemed perfect for this. I got 240 blades out of it and have a bit of fabric left. I will need more for the centers, background and such.


But I love the fabrics and I think it will be pretty. And it has just been so enjoyable to work on.

HOT HOT HOT!!! Multi tasking vs ADD..I was reading an article last night in my quilt guild newsletter and the article encouraged having several projects going at the same time...some handwork by the phone...something to take in the car...a sewing machine project...etc. You're right on with all of your LIW's (Ladies In Waiting);)

Love your fabrics. I recently did a dresden plate tutorial and now I'm seeing dresden plates everywhere; well not because of my tutorial but I'm just noticing them more now. :o) I just finished 240 blades and now to finish 6 blocks. I can't wait to see your project finished!!!

Love that fabric Annette! You go girl! I think I can see the trail of smoke from your sewing machine from here!

Now don't forget to come up for air once in a while.

So cute. I love the dresden plates. And I'm seeing them all over. It makes me want to drop everything I'm doing and rush to cut them out! Yours are darling.

Sherri said...

I'll say multi-tasking...or maybe quilting hyperactivity disorder!!! I LOVE your fabrics...what line is it? I think I might have to take a chance and get a scrapbag!

Sherry said...

I'm going with quilters ADD, I have it too. Hey, go with it & have fun. That's what I try to do. :)

What beautiful fabrics in that scrap bag!! Your dresdens are going to look amazing! I have often wondered about buying a scrap bag...worried the fabrics might not be the best, but your bag has changed my mind. :-)

Goodness gracious, Annette. You're one busy woman with a ton of projects in progress.
No ADD, I think that you just have an immense love of beautiful fabric and quilts!
