New Year, New Projects

I don't know what I'm doing right now. I've been waiting and waiting for life to settle back down into our normal routine. For the past few days, I've been plotting out what I wanted to do as soon as I got time to sit down at the sewing machine....

And as soon as I got time to sew, I suddenly lost enthusiasm for all of my projects. Does this happen to any of you? 

I blame the migraine that kept me up most of Saturday night. By Sunday morning, the pain and nausea were gone, but I'm still not feeling a hundred percent myself.

So what do you do when none of your projects seem worth working on and you know it's just your mood (and maybe the fact that your sewing corner is buried under everything you stashed there during the month of December)? Pull out a magazine you bought last summer because you loved the quilt on the cover and make a test block!

I'm not sure if this is going to lead to a full size quilt for me or just enough blocks for a cute little baby quilt. It's not my style at all...but I love the idea of those cameras. I'll make some more (or not) and decide from there.

The pattern is Click! and it's in the August 2013 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

Cute block! It would even be fun by itself with a border and mounted on bulletin board for a display of photos. And this is my problem- I think of other ways to use blocks that do not include a full sized quilt! ;)
