    I have a rule that I must finish a top, then clean my room before I start another one. Otherwise my life would be full of UFO's.

    Well, I received my kit for Judy Niemeyer's Bali Wedding Star in the mail the other day. The colors are stunning and it is intricate. I CANT WAIT!!!

    I have lost all interest in my current project that is only about a third done. I found myself digging through the directions of the Bali quilt last night instead of piecing the current top.

    I promised myself that I would finish the current wallhanging by Friday of Memorial Day weekend and then I would start the Bali but that seems just an eternity away. So tonight right after dinner, I am going to dig in.

    I have the same rule otherwise I just go off every which way all the time. But once in awhile you just have to break your own rules! Sounds like a good time to do that.

    Life is too short for rules. Do what makes you happy.

    'Bali Wedding Star' sounds as if the colors are tropical.
    Must be a beautiful quilt.

    OMG! I just looked up this quilt online and it is an understatement to say that it is BEAUTIFUL! I don't think I would be able to wait to start it either. I think it would be a rule breaker for sure! Good luck!

    Well, considering the pattern has two booklets that come with it....challenging is the word. This is one of those bucket list quilts. It may take me two years to finish it.

    I didnt get very far tonight. It's a kit and like every kit I had to pull out the ugly fabric. I HATE WHEN THEY SUBSTITUTE!!!! Yanked out about 15% of the fabric. Got that done and subbed in some from my stash. I will probably go to my favorite batik shop and pick up a few more to sub in.

    This quilt requires an unbelievable amount of pre-sewing organization which is what I will be doing for this weekend. There are around 200 2 1/2 inch strips that need to be cut into a few thousand little squares that are numbered in order and ziplocked into baggies before you can begin to sew.

    You sound like me with a can of mixed nuts....they call to me and I lose control so I eat them....At least there are no calories in quilting! :lol: I saw the bali wedding star and it is beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing what you do with it!!
    Now get back and finish the project you were working on. It will give you incentive to finish more quickly!!

    Well I cant quilt for two days but I can dream. I was dreaming about cutting the squares last night in my sleep.

    My justification is that I am "stuck" on the third done quilt. It was a kit and they sent me a FQ that was cut short. I didnt realize it and now I am 3/8 inch short to make a square...I guess I have to go shopping on my lunch today.

    When I find this happening I figure I'm not getting anything accomplished anyway so I might as well start the new project to get me going again. :lol:

    You know what they say: "All rules are made to be broken." :D I'd go for it.

    Can you show us a picture and tell us where you ordered it from? Sounds interesting.

    Break your rule! Work on the bali and it may give you the push to finish the other quilt! Sometimes a quilt needs to sit for awhile.
