That was until I stopped and checked the Flash Sale of the day at Fat Quarter Shop before checking out with just my pattern ;) Which just happened to be an Ella and Ollie Layer Cake ;) And that totally sparked a new idea that was just to great not to do!!!
How gorgeous would it be to make a Figgy Dessert Sampler!!!! I had 3 other Figgy Layer cakes stashed and the fabric requirements work out to be basically 4 Layer Cakes, so add the new one I threw in my cart, a Cupcake 1 and 2 Mix that the pattern calls for, and I am so good to go!!! I am so excited!!! And now I am just burning Stash instead of Scraps, and that's great too, right ;)
And I know there are some Sew Alongs out there for this Dessert Sampler, but my plan is to take this one nice and slow!!! It's not often I can work on a quilt one block at a time, enjoying the process of seeing each individual block come together, and I want to take advantage of that for this quilt ;) So no deadlines, no cutting out every block before I even start, I am just going to take this as it comes and enjoy every minute of it. And with that said, I am sure it will come to a point where I just can't wait to see it all come together, and drop everything to sew it all up, but hey, here's to trying to start out thinking of it as a long (long, long) term project ;)
So how about you??? Do you have a Long Term project that you are working on??
