Thimbles Weekend.

I don't know where the time went last week. I seem to have developed sewers ADD, and can't get anything done anymore. Friday I went to Thimbles, I had to find a project to take since my Glory Bound is still on the design wall, not pinned, and I wasn't about to take it down and lay it out again. My method this year for finishing up UFO's to to "pick a box", all of my UFO's are in boxes stacked up so I just pick one. Here it is Box #2 for the year. I wonder what is in it?
Here it is. a flannel quilt I started about three years ago from some leftovers from some other projects, plus fat quarters that I had bought just because I liked them. It is definitely time to finish this. I have most of the pieces cut, just need to sew them together. There are only two
blocks in the quilt, one is 2 strips that are 3 1/2 inches wide sewn together, the other block is
three strips that are 2 1/2 inches wide sewn together. The blocks are laid out in an alternating pattern. This was definitely a good Thimbles project to work on. I have to take projects there that I really don't have to think about much, because I get so busy talking that I don't always pay attention to what I am working on. I managed to get all of the two strip blocks finished and some of the three strip ones before I gave out. It was great to see everyone. Check out Pat's blog for some great show and tell photos.

The pick a box plan...very good. I don't think you have ADD at all.

Quilter's ADD - wonder what the doctor would say when I say that is what I think my problem is. Love the pick a box method. Every seam is a step forward. Have a great week!
