I have been busy getting some stuff done this week and with all of the wonderful inspiration all over blogland, my head is spinning with new quilt ideas and projects I want to get started on. Does this happen to you also? You make this great list of projects you want to work on for the year, the month, the week and then you start reading blog posts and all of the sudden, those beautiful plans you made are all out the window?
This happened to me this week when I was reading Melissa's blog at Happy Quilting. Melissa is hosting a quilt along during which we will all be piecing and quilting her wonderful pattern Starburst. This quilt is so stunning, I just could not resist. So I pulled out 12 fat quarters, but then realized I wouldn't have enough of the background fabric I want to use so I had to order some. I hope it comes this week so I can get started on cutting and participate in Monday's linky party.

This week, I also got started on quilting Charming Stars and made some pretty good progress. I think I'll be able to get that one finished over the weekend.
With Valentine's Day coming soon, I thought it would be fun to make a small red and pink quilt. And to kill two birds with one stone, I pulled out my Schnibbles patterns (we have to make our "favourite" Schnibble for the Feb 1 parade).
