trying to be patient

Wondered why I'm stressing so much over a binding?

This thing won't be heading for any quilt shows, but it's turning out okay. I've still got two sides to go, but it's going to get done -- maybe even by the end of January.

I still don't like this quilt. While sewing the binding, I realized that I'd love it if it was a postage stamp quilt, if the big blocks were patches of sixteen little squares, and the little blocks along the edge were four squares... gotta dig through my stash and cut more squares. Almost a thousand for Scrap Vomit, at least another thousand for this new idea, and more for that other postage stamp quilt I saw in a magazine last week...

I am getting really desperate for things to settle back to normal so that I can spend a couple of days wallowing in my fabric stash.

Goodness! I'd like to hear that explanation, lol. Did you get gifted a bunch of fabric?
