Another new project?!?!

It's probably not a good thing to post two days in a row about starting new projects, when September is half over, and I haven't even touched this month's UFO!!!
However, Temecula has started a new alphabet sew along and I totally have to make this one because it will make a great baby quilt.  

Click here for the first block instructions. 

My plan is to use up bright scraps (hand dyed fabric from Vicki Welsh) for the letters on a black-dots-on-white background. FUN!
The instructions are great and each block is fun to sew.

Now... where is that UFO pile?!?!

  1. I am not doing the Temecula alphabet blocks but can totally understand the starting new projects and letting the UFO's slide!

  5. Ah, but it takes but a minute to sew those little alpha blocks - so it's OK and you still can get to the UFO.

  7. Oh Kathy! That will make such a cute baby quilt - and the brights will be perfect to catch baby's interest!!!! I love starting on new projects - I would hate to think of the creativity wasted if I refused to follow an inspiration just because I was already working on something else!

  8. You're tempting me again. I have a Wordplay quilt on my NewFO list for this month. Gotta finish 3 more projects then maybe I can start another...

  9. It is a tempting one, Kathy. I understand you succumbing--especially with those happy colors waiting for a home. : )

  10. Looks like you have a case of "start-itis". I hope it isn't contagious, because if it is, you just might have passed it along on the weekend. I wonder what the incubation period is......... LOL. Those fabrics that I bought Saturday evening are calling to me to start something......

  12. I was so tempted, but just bought the little Moda alphabet pattern from Primitive Gatherings at the AQS show in Grand Rapids. Your letters are going to make a happy alphbet! Love the Marcus Brothers Designers Mystery blocks, too.

  16. oh no, now you are going to make me want to start playing with letters again! These are a great start....don't forget to make some asterisks, I know how much you like them.

  17. What a great idea to use Vicki's rainbow pack for the letters. I am very tempted to do that too!
