Yearned for, longed for, bored of:

I craved this range of fabric, I could not wait for it to arrive, all the way from the good old USA curtsy of Dot. Now I hate the sight of it! 180 blocks later and I need to start something new. I have discovered, all be it very expensively, that I am not a range of fabric quilter. If there is such a thing? (Forgive me if I offend anyone, who enjoys making quilts using ranges of fabric, I do not mean to)? I would much rather mix and match fabrics and colour schemes myself. I have also discovered that I am not a big repetitive quilt person. The quilt I am currently making is an Amanda Hall design from Monkey Buttons and the original is just fabulously gorgeous. Mine on the other hand is not doing very much for me! I have completed 3 of the 9 blocks that make the whole of the quilt. Each block consists of ten brick and ten square blocks. I have decided that I must now go and search through my fabric stash, start a new project. however, each day I will complete one of the remainder 6 blocks.

I think that's why I love scrap quilts, I have a short attention span and would get bored very quickly. I love plunging my hand into my scrap bin and pulling out a small peice that I forgot I had, or better still, I remember who gave it to me.
Go on- make a scrap quilt Susan :-D
