Winter Quilts in Texas?

Here in Texas it was 80 degrees yesterday. So how do you get in the mood to make a winter quilt in the middle of winter in Texas? I am not sure. I do know that I put my New Years Eve quilt top on the quilting frame and got two passes done when I decided I did not like the second pass so I'm going to gently remove those stiches and as I tell my children "Make a new plan Stan."

In the meantime, I have rearranged the shop again to accomodate more fabrics. I have lots of precuts in from Moda that just needed to show their pretty faces to me for inspiration. I have found a few patterns to accomodate the new Honey Buns and Turnovers from Moda. Are you like me and really just like to sit down and sew from what is in your head and see what appears? The problem is then you have to translate the creation to paper if someone else likes the creation which then takes you away from the sewing machine. Such a vicious circle!

It seems like the chat groups I am on are all quite. I suppose everyone is working on new projects instead of chatting. That is a good thing so we don't get behind in the new year projects.

If you are not a TV football fan, line up a project and get ready to sit and sew on Superbowl Sunday. That is my plan. I have some new Scrap Bags in from Moda that I may just have to pull off the shelf and make a quick Sunday project with those 40 coordinating 3 inch selvage strips that are calling my name.

Enough said have a good end of January.
