Some progress on stashbusting :o)

The last couple of days I have been cutting some fabrics now and then, just taking it slow now when my neck is getting better from the inflammation. It takes a lot of time to cut fabrics for a large quilt, and I've been cutting for two quilts at the same time, and that means it will take a lot more work to finish the cutting. But as soon as the cutting is done, I'm able to sew for some days :o) Then it's easier to sit down and get something done, too.
I just had to piece some of the pieces together to see how the blocks turned out, and I think I like it! I am trying to use both new and old fabrics, and I think I will have some yards less in my stash when I'm done :o)
The first one is some of the "Bricks and Stepping Stones" by Bonnie.

The next is for the "Scrappy Spools". Aren't they nice? I think every quilter should have a quilt filled with spools :o) I am thinking about making one miniature quilt with spools too, just to have a little quilt to put up on the wall. When I am done with all the tops I have in progress, I guess I will have enough of the ones I can wrap around me to keep warm ;o)

I will try to focus on these quilts now, before I move to another project. But I might work on other UFO's and WISP's as I move along. I tend to get bored when I focus on only one project at a time, because I get so many ideas on the way, I just cannot keep my mind on one thing. I guess some of you agree, and some of you don't. But the main idea for me anyway, is to have fun, do the things I like whenever I want ;o) That's the way it works best for me :o) But I wish I was better with finishing stuff... but I will maybe get better this year? I will definitely try! Hope you all are having fun doing what you like, when you like too:o)

Så flott dette blir, da! Du er så flink med å velge stoffer og sette dem sammen - jeg har beundrett dette flere ganger - også nå!
Skal bli en sann fornøyelse å følge med på disse to prosjektene :o)

Enhetene til begge quiltene ser kjempefine ut, så langt! Slutter meg til Lenas kommentar: du er utrolig flink til å sette sammen farger!

Gleder meg til å følge fremgangen på begge prosjektene!

Åhh... og godt nytt år, forresten! :o)

It's already looking great, Laila! I love your black. Is it *wordie* fabric?

I'm so happy that you're getting to do the things that you love. There will be much more of that this new year! I'm full of hope.

Love and hugs....

Hej Laila, when I read your post, it felt like I would have been reading my own post;) I also decided to do the things which I like when I like;)

Dette ser veldig lovende ut, nydelig farge/stoffsammensetning!
