Q.A.D.D.

DO you have it? I do...Quilt Attention Deficit Disorder (not tryin' to offend anyone).... I just keep jumping from project to project....fabric to fabric ...like Anka's Treasure pattern Simple Sixties in Darla. I ♥ Darla fabric.... I did finish buttonhole stitching and piecing Big Birdie...yippee..off to the quilter! There was one block that gave me fits of rage..I had to un-sew it...5 times..no joke. I ♥ it anyway.





AND these little blocks were from a swap from Pat Sloan's block exchange a couple of years ago. They were collecting dust in my WIP stack so I "whipped" them together. just need a border...so still on the WIP stack.



For those curious gals out there...I have several MBS projects in the works...one at my machine quilter, and 5 others on the WIP pile for various reasons....I think it's my Q.A.D.D. I just can't stick with one of them long enough to finish and post....oh wait there will be an easy one coming soon on MBS (like tomorrow).

That is hilarious! I so do not have QADD because it drives me nuts if i have too many things going at once ... besides i can't wait to see the end results so i have to push thru them quickly!

I get that too! Although most recently I have been more focused than usual. Which actually is pretty unusual. Love the projects you are working on currently!

I went through a period of QADD, but lately its in remission. lol!

Janet said...

I thought that was normal behaviour for a quilter! I still love the little projects you show, even if it takes awhile to finish.

love those birdies, so cute!!!!
oh my think its a normal behavior for a quilter,
I am not happy unless I have a few projects going at once and a few projects that are just "aging" while I decide what I want to do next on them and a few that well maybe I will never finish
!ts all about the process and having fun!

YUP! ME TOO! QADD. I'm so glad there's a name for it now. LOL. My list seems to be endless and I added another project to the mix. I need to stop.

Both your projects that you 'featured' in your post are awesome. LOVE the Darla one. I need to get going on my Darla pinwheels.
