New projects

I think I've started a Garden Party quilt, from Bonnie Hunter's Addicted To Scraps book..
I have a huge box of 1.5" strips to use up, and I thought that this pattern would do the trick nicely. I've cut out a heap of blocks, kitted most of them and sewn some of them, but it's just not grabbing my attention.  It's in a project box waiting for me to decide whether to go ahead with a full sized quilt.
These 9-patches that I wasn't too keen on have morphed into my next project.  I just want to sew dozens of them and assemble them into these blocks.

I saw this Pinterest image, and really liked how dark the whole thing was, with the light squares of the nine-patches forming chains across the quilt.
I've sewn two blocks, and cut a heap of strips, and I'm itching to get this under way. 
It will use up a heap of dark and mid blue scraps, and maybe use up some of those dark blue FQs that have been in the stash drawers for far too long.
And then there's these little 4"blocks.
I really liked Mereth's blue chain quilt, but thought that I have many more green and brown scraps and strips, so that is the colour scheme for my quilt. These are dear little blocks to sew, they use even the smallest of scraps, and they're my new leader-ender.  Until they take over as the main project, some time in the future.

I'm having fun with all these new things, and not worrying about the UFO list right now. There are some stressful things to deal with in the next few months, and I need to just have fun in the sewing room. No duty sewing allowed.

I'd like to make a Garden Party someday but it just't hasn't made the prep list yet. Your little 9 patches are cute, the quilt will be lovely. So many quilts to make, so little time, happy stitching!

I am in the same place with that quilt. I love the finished quilt but can’t commit!
