Procrastination and Quilts

So a while ago (like over a year ago) I whipped up this I found the pattern over at Moda Bake Shop. Love their blog, it has tons of great projects!  I thought  the Stacked Coin Quilt was so cute and I just had to make it. Well, over a year later and I have yet to finish it. So a few weeks before Mother's Day this year, I decided to motivate myself to finish it and give it as a Mother's Day gift to one of our moms or sisters.

So I pulled it off the shelf where it has been sitting for quite some time....
(How tacky is my picture with the batting hanging out?!)

Now, look down there. Do you see it?   Pathetic how far I have gotten on the quilting!! How lazy am I?  But I guess with 2 little boys under the age of 2 it is nearly impossible to sit at the sewing machine for more than 5 minutes at a time!

 I am thinking I should stick to very small projects that give instant crafting gratification!

Oh! And here is another one!!

This one is from miscellaneous Amy Butler fabrics and linen. Love linen!


  1. Ooooo! Such pretty fabric choices!!

    With three kids, I have to wait until summer vacation to get more quilting time! I have two quilts in this state too.

  2. Nice! I don't think you're lazy, just busy with different priorities. At least that's what I'm telling myself since I have two long term projects I should get done too ...

  3. So pretty though! I'm drooling over the fabric in both quilts.

    P.S.) Don't feel bad, I have tons of un-finished projects.
