Default What Now? I'm at a loss...

I don't have a quilt being pieced on the go. That never happens.
Yes, I have quilts that need quilting, but nothing that needs piecing and I like to bounce back and forth.
I'm thinking scrappy but I just can't seem to find a pattern that I'd like to do.
Any ideas?

That's when I go to pintrest and look around. Almost always, I will see a quilt that I had forgotten about. Sometimes I even take the drastic step of cleaning up and organizing my sewing room. Lots of UFO's pop up, so I make a list.

Half square triangles maybe? Darks sewn to lights -- easy peasy, and there are so many varieties of settings. You could make quilts for years and never do the same setting twice.

This might be a good time for you to discover inklingo.com.

Have you seen this post from this afternoon? Do you know this block/pattern. It looks so inviting.

Perhaps a pattern from Bonnie Hunter’s free pattern tab will appeal.

I always end up back where I started. On point 12 inch or 9 inch blocks with sashing. I just keep changing the colors or the subject matter in the blocks. For the last lockdown I did two maple leaf, one greens and one fall colors.

This avatar is the fall colors.

When that happens to me I just do something else until I get inspired. I quilt for my own pleasure so there isnít ever pressure on me. I like to do other things too.

My go-to for in between projects is Arkansas Crossroads, it's a scrappy and uses up a lot of scraps! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/bf/84...1cc7cce5f8.jpg
