    I am always excited about a new project too! I love picking out the fabrics, and cutting and piecing, or appliqueing. It is almost always the quilting part that stops me. Not that I don't like doing it, but trying decide how to quilt the project. I know I can always stipple/meander and just get it done, but sometimes a quilt needs something special, and hard to decide what that should be.

    Sounds like a truly fun project! I get excited whenever I make a Quilt Of Valor because I always try a different pattern and it is fun seeing how it turns out.

    I'm enough of a novice that I'm excited about every project. Almost all my quilts are charity quilts for children. Each one is a different pattern and a different FMQ pattern. I love each one while I'm working on it but I'm also always looking to the next one with great excitement.

    I have been quilting for over 30 years and I still get SO excited with each new quilt I start! I wouldn't be starting them if I didn't still feel this way!

    I'm really excited about my new project. Bought a pattern and just loved the fabrics it was made out of, and then found out I could still buy the very same fabric. That doesn't happen for me very often. It arrived a few days ago, and I've been cleaning/sorting out my quilting studio so that I can start. Can't wait!

    Yes, I am always excited when I purchase the fabric for a project...problem is that life happens and I have whole projects in boxes pattern and all. I have one that I started in a class over 5 years ago, it's a radiant star but I took apart several times so that the center looks like a size D bra...Haha.. a Longarmer said she could quilt is down if I finish it. I will try and finish it at our next retreat, That is if I am not too embarrassed.

    I get a wonderful sense of excitement as I begin a new project. I think that is why I have more than one on the go at any time. It was like being at school new exercise book or sometimes a new peg.
    Wonderful forget the past new hope Nd fun.
    I don't get the same excitement with a finished quilt oh it is done.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I start building excitement once I've pieced the top of the current project and know that within a week I'll be starting something new. Today I should finish the quilt I've been working on and I'm excited about what I'll start today or tomorrow.

    Yes, a new project gets the adrenaline running and I do look forward to starting it. It is good all the way around. Maybe I should start something new today....

    I agree, I am always excited when I start a new project. Most of the time I am using stash fabrics or scraps so I am never really sure what they will turn out looking like, but that doesn't dim that rush of excitement.

    I always get really excited over a new project. I work on it feverishly until they are about 3/4 of the way finished and then I get bored and want to start something new. That is how I create so many UFO"s.
