Sabotage

Cutting a new project really is not what i should have been working on today...yet, i just could not help myself. Anyone else have this problem? :o) I keep making new tops and sabotaging myself...because if i keep making new ones i am never going to get any of the others done. What a vicious cycle!! See that pile in the back there, that is what i should be doing, my 9 patch quilt a long. All is made i just have to get to the sashing. I don't like sashing.
I had one of my handy quilt holders help me out...you can see her shadow back there. She was very obliging. I found this pattern through Use the Loot blog. It goes very fast. I started around noon and had the whole top made by 2:30. It is called the Quick Strippie pattern by Mary Quilts.
This is a Darlene Zimmerman feed sack print that i have been hanging on to for a very long time. I love a vintage looking print. I never knew what i wanted to use it for, until today. I think I bought it way back when i lived in Washington, several years ago. In this last picture you can see the color a little better....it is pretty overcast out today so the colors are not very true. The small strip is a soft spring green on green.

Now i am going to add this to my downstairs pile of quilts to finish, which is now 4 deep. Yikes!
