OMG you guys! I am so excited!! About 2 weeks ago while surfing the blogs I saw a super-awesome, gotta have it, quilt. And that was a wip picture. Sadly on the blog there was no credits. The quilter had taken the picture at a retreat with a whole bunch of other quilters and this was just one of those “would you look at this stunner” pictures.
I tried googling it using search words that I thought would apply. No joy. I did star the blog in my reader so that I could go back and drool all over it & I was holding out hope that one of these days I’d find out more about the quilt.
Today was the day. I was searching for something unrelated (or so I thought) and on a shop’s website I found it:
Yeah, I know. Did you notice the freakin’ Pirate block? :thud: Sorry fainted from the lust.
Problem is I have two, count ’em two unfinished (oh hell, let’s be honest – unstarted) applique block of the month quilts. I am dying. I can not, simply can not take on another one. It would be pure insanity. And I can not even for half a second justify the cost. I could if I had only one quilt going… but I don’t. I have 4 kits right now. The Secret Project (which I need to start like yesterday), Over The River which is starting next Friday, Baltimore Halloween & Merry Christmas.
And yes, I vaguely remember something about me saying I was going to be a one quilt at a time gal. I have way too much cross stitch stash to even think about getting into quilting like that.
Maybe just maybe I could get it if I finished the Secret Project & Over The River… Ugh. It’s an illness. I’m actually thinking about having 3 massive applique quilts going at one time.
If anyone has a spare straight jacket laying around could you send it my way?
P.S. Working on HoHRH. Progress pic soon.
