I Have Quilting ADD

Oh who are we kidding? I have ADD, period. I constantly have these ideas pop in my head and I MUST MAKE THE QUILT BLOCK NOW OR ELSE. 

Therefore, ADD + impatience = I've run out of design wall. 

Look at it. I have no space for anything and most of my walls have giant windows, so actual wall space is a precious commodity. The next house will have at least two giant walls without windows in my studio or I'll cry.

So on the wall I've got two New York Beauty blocks, two mini quilts appliqued onto backgrounds, one that needs to be appliqued, and one Spinning Stars test block in all solids. Now I like the solids.

And on the wall is a mini quilt Christina gifted me. That deserves a blog post all of its own :) The cross-stitch piece above it is something I did for my sister (that I need to mail to her!!!) and it too deserves its own post.

I had fabric all picked out for my Spinning Stars quilt, and these were just fabrics I had lying around on my table. Dammit. And I can't remember if those fabrics are Kona or Bella or what. I don't label things and I suffer for it.

And the mini quilt centre that needs to be appliqued is this one I did out of hexagons and half-hexagons. I pressed them a wee bit too much so they're all wrinkly, but those should sort themselves out when I've appliqued and quilted it. I hope.

All this sewing makes for a very pretty and colourful rubbish bin in the studio though :)

Now I know why I have design walls left right and center....I have the same condition that you have, in my quilt life. Everything looks fabulous.

PS You could take you're design wall around the corner.

Very pretty blocks!!

Lol - I'm fairly certain if I had a design wall, it would look similar. Mind you, right now, most of my stuff is in piles waiting to chain piece like crazy, or waiting to be cut.

Your wall looks a bit like art though, so maybe your ADD isn't a bad thing. :-)

I'd say your ADD is not such a bad thing... your blocks look great. And I must add, your rubbish looks like stuff I would actually be saving..... just sayin'..... :)

Hi audrie, hope you don't throw out those fabric scraps in your bin...they look like the perfect size for 1/4" hexagon paper piecing!!!
