All of this came about because I wanted to start on a new quilt along hosted by Crazy Mom Quilts. I have been hanging on to a jelly roll and a charm pack of Hope Valley since they came out and had not found a reason to cut, but this seemed like the perfect project for them. I had also just picked up 4 yards of one of the basket weave prints on sale so I had the backing ready to go!...
only problem is that I could not in good conscience start another quit along when I had two that were in progress (way behind in progress). I rationalized that the postage stamp quilt along was a life long project and I could not be held accountable for completing it. That left the the pinwheels for which I had no excuse other than a loss of momentum.
This left me in a moral dilema that I negotiated as follows: I can start the new quilt along, but, as I had just completed the active project I was working on, the pinwheels went to the front of the line and were now the official project in progress.
Twisted I know, but it works for me :)
Best part is neither required the additional purchase of material!
