There is something bad about sitting around with your foot up..especially when you have a laptop. There are all sorts of temptations just a finger tip away….or at least for me.
I’ve been working on so many of my UFO projects. They are getting closer and closer to completion…yes I have lots to do yet but I am getting closer…Close enough that I am starting to think of backing fabrics. Well what’s a girl to do with free time and a notion in her head that I need quilt backs. Me, I head over to Whittles Fabrics. They have so many fabrics that are only $5 a yard which is perfect for backings.
The big pieces in the back are backings.
The bottom one is for Cheddar Bow Ties.
The dark piece for Wonky Wishes. I had already bought a backing for it but then it got using in another project.
The yellow in the center is for Winston Ways.
The red is for Talkin’ Turkey.
I am really excited about them all.
There are other fabrics there too…The pink is tosimply add to my stash. I have trouble finding pinks. I couldn’t let these get passed on by.
The other fabrics are all test pieces. I’ve not been happy with the fabrics I’ve picked up to make the sashing for Star Struck. I’m hoping these teamed with something I’ve already bought might do the job. I haven’t tested them out yet…Soon I hope..soon.
So often I have so many projects going on. It seams that they are all on the radar even if it’s just to get backing. Some people don’t like having lots of projects going on at once…me, I love it. I really love it. It lets me ruminate on a decision. It lets me do whatever fits into my schedule. I can trim something during nap time. I can have a project for the car. I can have a couch project. I can have a project for whatever I need.
Of course there’s a hard part to it….I seem to not finish projects often. I’ll take that though. I’m okay with slowing down individual projects vs having something to do all the time. I LOVE having lots of projects going on.
