Well, I'm already starting to fall off the wagon. I haven't finished any of my WIP's yet, but I'm joining the newly announced Swoon QAL with Katy. I bought the pattern last year and while I've loved seeing everyone else's I've resisted the urge to start one...until now!
The reasons are twofold:
1. I don't need any new projects (see this list).
2. I can't decide on the fabric.
See, I have this lovely pile of fabric which would be perfect for the pattern and my bedroom decor.
But I also have this: (drum roll please)
That's right I've been holding out on you! I have a HUGE stack of 1/2 yard cuts of Heather Ross's Mendocino! I bought this almost three years ago when I was pregnant with my first son, and I've never used it. If I had known that by this time it would be worth $40 a yard I would have bought more!
I had originally planned on using my hoarded French General fabric for Swoon (it's the reason I purchased the pattern in the first place), but ever since I saw this quilt block on Flickr, I've been dreaming about using the Mendocino.
I don't know how my husband is going to feel about mermaids on his bed, but I think I might have to go for it.
Look at those pink mermaids! They are topless, maybe that will help convince him...
Anyone else thinking about doing this QAL?
