On Starting A New Project...

"Little Letters"  ~ Temecula Quilt Company


A few weeks ago I was alerted by Quiltkeemosabe to a new tutorial, an alphabet quilt, beginning over at Temecula Quilt Co.'s blog (linked below photo).  Yesterday the first letter, and installment of this series, was published; this will make up as an adorable little quilt!  I'm in! I love letters, I love old-fashioned samplers; what's not to love?  The only decision here is what fabrics to choose.  Why would I consider starting even one more new project right now? I was puzzled by that myself... and then I read this quote, on creativity:  "The excitement, the true excitement, was always in starting again.  Nothing's worse than an accomplished task, a realized dream." - Marilyn Harris  There you have it. I've finished up more than a few long-standing projects recently. I NEED to start something new simply to acheive balance; my creative spirit demands it! Who am I to argue?
Life is Good!

I was looking for the perfect baby quilt and this will be great. Can't wait to quilt along with you!

This project has been tempting me--but for now I will just save the patterns.
Thanks for the justification to start a new project, though. I do have one in mind. : )

I've got my A made. My DIL is a 3rd grade teacher so I have her in mind.

I made my A today too! Yes, I think an infusion of inspiration is just what our spirits need now and again!

Even before you wrote this I had seen it on the Temecula website and was immediately drawn to it ... I'm in ... mine will be scrappy ... very, very scrappy ;-) What fun!
