    Hi there! I finished up all of my Field of Diamond blocks last Wed, March 17th. I laid them all out and it's going to be really pretty. Thurs, I sewed the first 2 rows, and then sewed row 1 and 2 together. That's as far as I've gone on it. I've been just doing a little bit of everything else but that. I made my first 12" Bargello block on Friday and 12 Mini Star blocks. Sat I made this really pretty block that I've been wanting to try. It's called a Double Aster. And today, I started trying to learn to Paper Piece. I made the square in a square and then made a block called Lucky Star #2. I still need practice, but it was fun trying to learn. Here's a bunch of pictures of what I've been doing for the past week.

    Oh No! I am the same way not being able to stay focused on a project. My children say I have ADD. I love the bargello block, I am definitely going to have to try that.. Thanks for sharing and glad to know I am not the only one to jump around on my projects...

    Thank you everybody! I really want to make a Bargello now, but not the rippled kind. No, I want the twisted one that I don't have a pattern for and have never made. I'm still deciding on what to do next, so I'm still piddling. Thanks again for your interest and compliments. I'm glad I'm not the only one who "just can't seem to get it together". LOL

    Oh my goodness--I love everything!!!!
    The field of diamonds is amazing... and the bargello... and your paper piecing is dreamy!!!! Double Aster is not paper pieced?? I love that pattern!!! It's so precise--and looks very tricky!

    I can join in this "problem". I need to add halters and buttons to one horse/stable top, finish quilting the 4th Talk-About, and I have about 1/4 of the blocks done for Splash of Fall... it's been so nice out, so I've been outside.

    No, the Double Aster is not paper pieced. It looks tricky but the pattern is really simple. It shows exactly how to do it. Here's a link to the pattern if you want to try it. Thank you for all the compliments. Oh well! I'm off to see what I want to start now! LOL I should be finishing up that FOD, but I'm tired of working on it right now.

    I was feeling bad that I was the same way......

    thanks everyone for fessing up, now I know I'm not the only one.

    Danmar, I pulled out my nine patch and HST blocks from some swaps I was in years ago. They are both made the same size, with Moda Marbles black and bright fabrics. I'm in the process of putting them together based on one of your quilts, Northern Lights.

    I'm going to call mine Psychedlic Lights.

    Yeah!!!! That makes me very happy. I'm glad that you enjoyed the quilts that I posted. I'd sure love to see a picture of it! Please make sure that you post it or I'll send you my email for a sneak peek! :lol: And I agree with you! It's nice knowing that I'm not the only one with this problem or not staying focused! Thanks everybody!

    All of this are beautiful and I hope you finish and show pictures of them, completed.

    I only work on one at a time, I don't have a place to stash unfinished projects. I completely finish one before going on to the next. I do start planning out the next as I am finishing one.
