Temptations, Priorities, Projects and a WINNER!


When it comes to buying fabric and starting projects, it seems our

 “Our eyes are bigger than our clocks.”  —lck

  I just found this perfect fabric…

THEN I looked at my list of Unfinished Quilts…

Not sure this fabric works on any of these…

Not to worry…It will be great as the backing fabric for my next twenty tutorials!   Not my wisest purchase, but I still love this fabric…

Quilt Priorities


I also found this perfect pad of paper…(I need pads of paper about as much as I need fabric…)

But, it’s little reminder was useful…

"You can do anything, but not everything." SET PRIORITIES

So now I have my priorities straight…Just one quilt:

 Claire and Andy’s (AFTER) wedding quilt!

  1. I just did the same thing! Somewhere in a blog someone showed this totally adorable fabric. There was no way I was going to ignore it. I bought a yard of each of the colorway’s main theme. Right now it is just hanging in my quilt room so I can oooh and ahhh over how darn sweet it is! The fabric is weewander by sarajane for michael miller.
    Just a few weeks ago I came across your Quilt Notebook. I’ve read a little about it here and there in your recent posts. It is definitely the Quilt Doctor ordered! This summer I am going to go through the whole series. Thank you for putting this together!

  2. Rosemary b here:
    Hi My name is Rosemary and I am addicted to fabric.
    There is no cure, so just enjoy the ride.
    And what else — oh yeah, you only get one life.
    See how easy that is?
    I love this. Now I will get some for me.
    have Friday!

    • Love your thoughts on fabric addiction. Especially the “you only get one life”. Love it, works for me. : )

  3. I see a fabric I fall in love with, I have to get it. I have spent a couple of hours this morning looking for a fabric I saw on Facebook. All the information was given, but I think it is an older fabric because it never came up. I haven’t given up yet:).

  4. YEAH ! I am the winner ! Thanks Lori for sending me on the wonderful adventure. I was so excited this year to work on many of my projects. Your 3 quilt method has helped me stop seeing the forest and start working on the trees (oh, I mean quits). Thanks again, CJ

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
