Quilter's ADD

Yesterday was my sewing group meeting and I dutifully worked on a UFO from last year (see above pile of blocks on the right). I finished the blocks last night, pinned all the rows together, and it's ready to sew.

So what is the pile of fabric strips on the left? A different quilt that I cut out this afternoon while watching a DVD. Does anyone know a cure for quilter's attention deficit disorder?

Well, y'know, my mother used to say, "The trouble with you is you never finish anything." She just didn't live long enough! It all gets done someday and I'm a great believer in having five or six projects in projects and moving around from one to another as the spirit motivates. You don't need a cure, cause there's nothing wrong with you!

Word Verification: bufer which is a verb meaning "to trim off excess triangles sticking out from nicely made half-square triangles." Just bufer those babies.....

I hope they never find a cure for it myself!!!!

Brenda said...

Personally I don't see anything wrong with have 2, or 3 or even 10 quilts going at once.

I think of it as a gift...not a disability. I never want to find a cure for it.

Karin said...

I really don't see this as a problem. That is one great quilt. What is the one on the left?

Becky said...

What problem? Sounds normal to me. I agree with Karin. What's the project on the left? Your churn dash blocks look great. You do combine wonderful fabric with great patterns!

If there is a cure, I don't want to know about it!

I know...it's more new projects! The more, the better!

Carol said...

I think there is no cure! We all have it...and I think it's just fine! LOL!

Lovvvvve those skinny churn dashes.

I agree with Nancy, and Needled Mom, and Brenda, etc, etc, etc... It works for me to have several different projects going at once. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Technically I don't think it's a disorder, it's a talent!

Pat / Silver Thimble Quilt Co. said...

Silly woman...there is NO cure. Why would you even ask.

Oh I like MelissaS's comment! It's a talent! I have finished a few UFO's this summer and it is great, because if i hadn't already done so much work on them previously i never would have finished them now! I always have several things going. How lucky we are!
