I have issues...

There, I've said it...
I do have issues.


I keep finding new, quilt-y projects that I want to do.
And because I have no restraint whatsoever,
there are now, at least, 1,700 quilts I'd like to make.  This month.
(insert maniacal laughing here)

The latest make that one of the latest quilt-y projects I'd like to start?
It's called Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt!!!

I AM a farm girl, 
and well, I AM vintage,
and it IS another quilt!,
so what could be more perfect, I say!
Ms. Holt's new book FGV, is just now out
and starting May 1st, she's hosting
 a sew-along on her Bee In My Bonnet blog.
Check out the FGV info HERE.

I'd pre-ordered the book for my February birthday, but since I don't yet have it (as it's being mailed to me now), I had to grab this picture from the Bee In My Bonnet blog.
To set the record straight,
I am not, in any way, affiliated with Ms. Holt, her Farm Girl Vintage book, or the Bee In My Bonnet blog.  
I just LOVE this new book!!!
I LOVE Ms. Holt!
Oh, and I just love Ms. Holt's patterns and fabrics!
Not LOVE in a stalker kind of way, 
but in an addicted quilter way, you know?

I don't know if I'm going to join in the FGV sew-along, 
but my plan is that I am going to make my own version 
of at least TWO of the 14 quilts in this book!!!

So, folks...
that's my latest issue... err, ONE of my latest issues. :)

By the way, did I mention that I ordered me some polka dot fabrics?
If you scroll through the Bee In My Bonnet blog, (here) you'll see why.
And, (here's) the link that originally got me hooked - 
the fabrics and the Flower Box block!

Definitely issues here. :)
I'm not the only one, right?  Right?

Happy Wednesday and Happy Earth Day!
Hope it's wonderful for you!


  1. Nobody ever said that we have to finish projects, just start them. I'm great at starting projects. My quilt guild has a challenge going. We had to list our UFO's from before July 2014. The UFO's had to be at least 100" around to qualify (no table runners, purses, etc). I listed 28 items, and I've finished 4 of those items so far. Only 24 more items to finish (and I can get credit for NEW items, too).

  2. Join the club! I want to make 1701 quilts....this month. I have seen the info about the sew-along and like the pattern but I am being oh so good and not even considering this one.

  3. UFO is not a dirty acronym in my house! Just bring 'em on. I can't wait to see what you make (or simply start). If they are all as happy as the one on the cover they will be great.

  4. No, you're not the only one. I love the cover quilt in the book. I've followed along on Lori's blog. I resisted and resisted but your enthusiasm tipped me over the edge. The book is on it's way. . .

  5. Oh is that all? I'm sure I'm up to at least that many myself.:) There's just too many great quilts to make!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
