A New Long (Long, Long) Term Project

When Moda announced they were releasing a new Dessert Sampler quilt I knew right away that I had to make this quilt!!!  It reminded me of the Modern Building Blocks sampler that they did a few years back that I had so much fun making ;)  And of course, there are Kits using the new Color Cuts (so dreamy!!!) that this quilt was design for, but I was thinking this would be a great way to bust through some of my scraps :)

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??

  1. I LOVED MMBB's and technically I'm not finished with it because I decided to go nice and slow. Thanks for writing about this, somehow I hadn't heard about this one...I may just have to have it :)

  2. it'll be gorgeous in Fig Tree fabrics! I could do that easily, because I've got just about all of her collections! :-) I just can't sew fast enough to use them all up!! LOL Have a great day! Hugs, H

  3. Looking forward to your process - slow or a little bit faster :)! Looks like a lot of fun!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
