It is an incurable disease and very debilitating for creative people. But the good news is that you can manage the symptoms by signing up for a quiltalong and starting new projects whenever the illness flares up.
The two new projects I recommend starting today are:
1) Sunny Side Up
This is a quiltalong by Judy Laquidara. You just need to collect some fabrics and get sewing.
I am making this quilt for one of the wedding gifts I will need this summer.
I am making a scrappy version using my collection of Kansas Troubles fabrics. These are my 9 light fabrics. I have finished sewing step #4 and step #5 was just posted. If you like sewing stars and 4 patches, you will be in heaven with these blocks! You can easily get caught up if you want to join in the fun.

2) Fat Quarter Club's "Deck-ade the Halls"
It is the 10th anniversary of the Fat Quarter Shop and they are celebrating by giving us a gift! It's a fun Christmas quilt pattern with the steps/blocks being released every 2 weeks.
You will have a great quilt finished in time for Christmas gift exchange if you start now! The fabric requirements can be found here. I am buying some white yardage for the background and am using up stash for the blocks. The gingerbread are the first blocks to be sewn, so I have found 3 browns and a red to start my quilt.
