Piece Out

I have a piecing problem.

I can't stop piecing lately. 

I am trying to blame the clear bins.

They mock me with their cut blocks and cut pieces.


This fabric (Winter's Lane by Kate & Birdie for Moda) is the latest pieced top.  I am patterning testing and can't wait to share the final qulit!

With this addition, I officially have eight pieced quilt tops.

 And two pieced tops for friends.


And I apologize for all the Instagram photos. I've been too busy piecing to take nice photos.

I have never, in my quilting life, ever had this many pieced tops.  I am not sure other than that all the cut blocks mock me.  I have to admit. The heat in the garage right now IS intimidating. But as the Army ROTC cadre used to say when we were training?   Suck it up and drive on.  

At least that is what I am going to try.
I am chaining myself to Ole Betsy this week.  

Anyone else have the problem of being stuck in a piecing rut?


  1. 10 tops... 2 weeks, you complete it and i'm buying drinks in Maui! ;)
    I'm almost done with my KING size swoon, i'm hoping you'll be up for the longarm challenge... ;)

  2. can you chain yourself to Betsy for short spurts, and alternate it with something to cool off?

  3. cant say my addiction is as bad as your Heidi :) I crave piecing when i'm done with hand stitching etc and tend to throw it in there for something different :0

  4. I have some of Winters Lane . Looking forward to seeing what you've done ; )


I cannot wait to hear what you have to say! Seriously! It makes my day!
