"New to Me" Purchase

They say that nothing is new under the sun. I say, if I haven't seen it before, it is new to me. So, even if this was new in 2006, and hundreds of quilts have been made by this pattern, I haven't made one, so this will be a new experience.

I find a pattern like this and want to make it right away....But I will wait until I finish cutting the blocks for my blue/white quilt.

Two main reasons:

1) I don't like to be cutting for two different quilts unless one of them is a real simple pattern (to me) and

2) I have to mull over the color scheme and scan fabric into my computer and play with it on my EQ6. Hopefully I can get this out of my stash, but this is a LOT of cutting.

My guess is that I will trot down to a LQS store and play with all the fabric down there for awhile. I must be prepared for a marathon of cutting. I really like to make my quilts as I go along rather than cutting everything at once. Mainly because I tend to get confused as to where I am. I am slow, so don't expect this to magically appear. I will try and keep you informed on the steps I make as I make them.

I don't want this to be a UFO or WIP very long, but it is liable to be.

Wish me to have a lightbulb go off inside my head on this!

Sorry about that 'song in your head.' Thanks for letting me know who wrote and sung it. I was trying hard to remember..

Cutting is not my favorite part of the process. Visiting the quilt store does put me in the mood!

Can't wait to see your progress!
