As If...

Yes, as if I don't have enough on my to-do list...

While looking through my stash for fabrics for (yet another set of) napkins, I came across these fabrics.  The kit was put together by my lqs for a BOM last year.  Along the way, I decided to not do the BOM...just too much going on at the time.  Most of them are Normandy Court and Fossil Fern, both  by Benartex...very pretty, aren't they? 

I did use a few pieces for napkins (I'll show that set later) and then started obsessing about wondering what I should do with these lovely pieces.  With the help of my friend, Erin of Why Not Sew?, (thank you!) I decided a 16 patch would be perfect.   

Even though I have a quilt top all set to sew together and another one to start right after the first of the year, and even though I am not quite done with Christmas gift-making, and I do have a few commissioned pieces to start on right after the first of the year...and especially even though I really need to concentrate on making doll clothes...I may have to take a bit of time when I wouldn't otherwise be sewing to work on the 16 patch.

Obsessed, I know. 

And crazy.

For sure.



"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

I need to decide on a project, need to do some appliqué and something I can make up in a weekend. As usual, I get everything else done and then get too tired to move, lol. I hope Tag is still feeling better and it is nothing serious.
