I want to do this… I do.. I really do…

Tell It To The Stars

Judy at Patchwork Times is hosting a mystery quilt next year (first step comes out 1/1/14).  You can check out the full details here. I really want to participate.  And this is how one gets UFOs… If you haven’t already experienced it – I introduce you to Quilter’s ADD!

As if I wasn’t already participating in 4 BOMs right now.  Of which I’m barely able to get 2 of them completed each month.  1 of them hasn’t officially started since I haven’t received the kit yet but I am receiving 3 and only getting 2 done.  And I’m working on Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery Quilt Celtic Solstice.  And I’ve got my current WIPs… finish quilting Easy Street, piecing Missing Ivy… my hand projects – the hand quilt and Raining Cats and Dogs!  I’ve got a ton to do.  But, in the back of my head I think I can swing Tell It to the Stars too.  It’s a year long mystery quilt so I’ll have a whole month to complete each step.  I love Love LOVE Judy’s stuff so I’m sure I’ll love this too.  (sigh!)  I haven’t decided one way or the other.  The only thing holding me back right now is that I just do not have time to gather the fabric.  I really want to purchase the fabric kit just because the colors are gorgeous and it’s SO EASY to do that.  But its $200.  And I’m not ready to commit the money to it.  To make things worse, if I want the kit I have to decide by 12/10. Otherwise I may not receive the fabric in time for the 1st step.  And if I do not get the fabric by the first step – that means I’ll be behind right from the starting gate… not my favorite place to be.

Are you participating in this mystery quilt?  Are you on the fence like me?

  1. I was hoping to start on Celtic Solstice this morning, but things got off to a bad start earlier than I even planned on being out of bed. I’ll catch up eventually….or not…
