Easily Distracted

I admit it, I'm too easily distracted. I know I've mentioned this before....but I can't tell you how many times I walk into my sewing room with a plan in mind and then I run across a project that had been started and put aside. Before I know it, I'm working on that instead of the intended project. So, this week, I really was planning on working on one of the secret projects but in the process of moving things around I ran across about a dozen of these rw&b 9-patches.

Before I knew it, I had more than 30. I figure 48 blocks set with sashing and a border will make a nice size for a QOV. In the same pile with the 9-patches were 2 of these lovelies, improved 9-patches.

They now number about 30 also, although only the top 6 you see here are actually connected. But another 12 or so have the melons attached.

Then I had lunch with a friend the other day and learned that their first grandbaby is finally coming west for a visit. Well that reminded me of the box of I-Spy patches I had run across earlier in the week. Since I had made quilts for both the baby's Mommy and Auntie I felt it only right that little Rowan should have one too.
By dinnertime the center was complete and I pulled the borders from my stash today and got them attached. Tomorrow it will go on the HandiQuilter to be quilted -- that is if I'm not distracted once again.

In the meantime, while starting to write this post I happened to read a most apropos post by Nancy. Yup, there's no doubt, I got it, BAD. In honor of my ADQD I made a little badge. I'm still trying to figure out how to share the code with y'all....if you know how, please let me know.
