I have quilting ADD. I buy patterns and quilt books that inspire me, yet overwhelm me. I buy fabric that I love without knowing which quilt I will make with it. Once I finish a quilt top I'm so eager to make something else I don't get around to actually finishing it. My favorite part of the process is planning which fabric will go with which pattern. I have 20 quilts planned, patterns and fabric put together in storage cases. I have 22 finished quilt tops. I have finished 20+ quilts.
Yesterday I started to quilt my Rainbow Petals quilt top but stopped when my highly anticipated paper piecing pattern "Grandmother's Flower Garden" arrived in the mail. I had to search for weeks to find it. It was initially published in a 2002 issue of a now extinct magazine. Initially I found the first issue on Etsy but once I received it I realized it only had part 1 of 4 and I needed to buy 3 more issues. I finally found a link to buy just the pattern on line. I have mad google skills.
I'm eager to get started but am taking my kids to Lake Tahoe to see Imagine Dragons in concert. It's my kids first rock concert. (They are 17 and 20.). My quilt will have to wait for tomorrow.
