I decided to put an end to this PHD. There wasn't a pattern for this sampler, and I was tired of it sitting on the shelf so after these 12 blocks I decided it was time to finish it. And as has been happening lately, I am almost sorry already that I didn't make it bigger. But I didn't want to add an elaborate pieced border and I am out of the print I used in the sashing, so that's as good a reason as any to finish it.
Now with so many tops finished, I feel like I can get on to starting something new. I just put 6 kits together in the last month. Yesterday I pulled one off the shelf and saw that I already forgot that I started a kit for it. I don't know what anybody does with dozens of UFO's. With Christmas on the way, I think it will be a while before I can really put some time into piecing again. I want to focus next on some quilting and before you know it I will be working on comfort quilt kits again.
I am convinced- Whoever figures out how to bottle time will become very rich. Sew long.
