Too Many W.I.P.s

But not a lot of progress. Lately it seems I have had a hard time finishing anything! I am sure it is because of my aversion to planning ahead, I like to make things up as I go along. I get a quilt top finished and didn't purchase any yardage for the back. So it sits and waits while I ponder all my options and spend too much time looking at fabric on line. Then, because I can't make up my mind, I start something new.

This is my most recent something new (spread out on the floor because the design wall is full of other WIPs)...




The perfect marriage of a layer cake of Moda's Scrumptious fabric and Cluck Cluck Sew's Basket Case pattern. The white squares are, of course, Kona cotton. The blocks were slow-going at first, but once I figured out a system, they went together quickly. I'll write more about that when I show the finish.


In the meantime, I wonder what I should use for the back...

  3. Hahaha! I do the exact same thing! Who are these people that buy their backing at the same time they purchase fabric for their front? Does that really happen? Hmmmm. These blocks are yummy!! They look like a lot of work too! Great job!

  4. Ohhh, this is so pretty! I love the colors. I do the same with my backs too and thought I was the only one. Good to know i'm not alone. ;)

  9. I love this! So pretty in Scrumptious. I have BLISS all set aside for a KING SIZE quilt using this pattern - I should get to work on it so I have it on my bed for the summer. :)

  10. I love your blocks :) I do the same thing when it comes to projects. I constantly seem to be starting things more than I finish them.

  11. It's like you just described what I'm doing right now. Your blocks look awesome and I really hope you can find some cool backing fabric for them. How about piecing the backing from the leftover fabrics? Are you up for that?

  13. Pondering over fabrics is part of the joy of quilting isn't it, although living in Australia means a 2+ weeks wait for anything I order.....
    Love the basket weave pattern, its one which I would like to try one day too. Just this morning I ordered 9 yards of Kona Solid in white from the US (The Fabric Shack) as I've used my last on my Tula Trees and suspect I'll need a little more to compete the back as well as for other projects. One good thing about having more than project on the go is that there's always something to go on with while waiting for fabric to arrive.

  14. I do like these blocks, will have to ponder some more to see how they how together. Think we all have UFO`s to deal with.

  15. Thanks for publicly sharing your working methods - starting lots of different projects and making decisions as you go along instead of all at the beginning - me, too! It IS nice to know about others who work this way. I work for awhile on something, see something else that looks good (about the same time I've getting ready for a change), start it, repeat! I work in a circle - a bit on this project , then the next, moving them all forward a bit at a time, and then - voila! - several things get finished rather close together - the creative spirit must work the way it works!

  17. I just finished this exact pattern and.love how it turned out.. Yours is beautiful with scrumptious. I'm curious to hear about how you pieced your blocks. I did mine one at a time, at first it was a little confusing but then it started to flow.

  18. I have the same problem! I hope to buy backing for several quilts at tomorrow's sales and get some WIPs crossed off of my list :). The new quilt is looking great!
