Time to get organized AGAIN!

Ok seems like I am in a rut here. My Gammill was down for six weeks and it is finally back and working just wonderful again. Now I have to get myself kickstarted. I have a wonderful sampler loaded and I just want it to be wonderful and am frozen as I cannot do that first stitch. Hopefully once I get going it will just flow and be done.

While my machine was down I did get some blocks sewn up from my scrap bin. They are bear paws and I just love this setting combined with log cabin blocks. This is not origional but the others I have seen were not scrappy. I might just have to do more rounds and make this one bigger. The blocks in the above photo are just laid out on the floor and not sewn together but I really like them and think I need to continue with this project.

I do like this combination with the bear paw and log cabin blocks and scrappy is my favorite kind of quilt.

That looks like is going to be a great quilt!

When I'm struggling with getting started I try the reward system -- if I quilt for XX minutes, than I get to do something else for XX minutes.

I like that layout - it is very striking. Hope you get your quilting rythm back soon!

That is a very zingy quilt. You're going to have to finish the one on the machine to make way for quilting this one. It's going to be great and look at the quilting potential on it. You will be up and running again soon.

I love it! I've been working on some 6 1/2 inch log cabin blocks for awhile now and have been toying with ideas for the layout-me thinks bear paw blocks will be in my future!

WOW, that is a BEAUTIFUL quilt you have stared! I have never seen the bear paw with the log cabin before... but it is very nice. I can't imagine it in anything other than scrappy ;)

Glad I found your blog thru your comment on Judy L's blog ;)

Happy Weekend, ~Bonnie in SE Texas
