Must Sew Faster!

I have been making headway on my QOV and have the top pieced!



This is what 252 hsts look like:



My eyes are kind of crossed after working with all of those hsts, but I have thoroughly enjoyed every stitch. It measures  62x78 right now and I'm taking it to Jackie this afternoon. I wish like crazy I could quilt it and I wonder if she'd let me quilt on it.

A few days ago Shelly over at Prairie Moon Quilts posted this.

 Oh my! Can you say, made to order?! I printed it out so fast and started mulling over fabrics immediately. I would love some of that Riley Blake line, but I REALLY need to use something I already have so I pulled these:


And then I made the first block:

I really like it, but I wonder if I ought to use this linen print instead of the cream:



And I'm super excited to get the rest made now. So now I have officially added ANOTHER quilt to the list. Sigh.

Shelly, please slow down. I already have a Shelly box. She laughed when I told her that, but I think she doesn't really believe me. Proof:

I have stockings:

A wall hanging (tutorial here:


A pincushion (tutorial here):


AND a quilt to make:


 Someone please go sit on her for me.
Our kiddo just called and asked when her quilt would be finished. Yikes! I had better get started on that!

Yes, Shelley is dangerous that way. You have to watch out for people like her. I hate to even mention it, but have you seen her cowboy hat pincushion?

Love your quilt......yes, must sew faster, that's what I say too, and more hours in the day please. Great post.

You are so funny! Yeah, I kinda doubted about the Shelly box, but no more -- the proof is right there! You know, this year's stocking will be out soon . . . By the way, your QOV is absolutely stunningly gorgeous! Wow!

Too funny - I feel your pain - I can't sew fast enough to keep up with all the projects that tempt me. That is a great quilt and it has your name written all over it!

I think you are already sewing in a superturbo speed. The top turned out great and I cant wait to see it quilted.
Oh I love the "The Three R´s" too and I already printed the tut. Thanks for the link! Sigh is there a place I can buy time???
