Next New Crazy

Yes, that is what I call some of my projects.  I get fixated on something and, like a dog with a bone, I don't let go.  I think it borders on addiction?  What do you think?  Do you need your stitch fix on a daily basis?  I admit it, I would need a 12 step program to get quilting out of my life. Or a very hot man!
This is a pre stamped piece from Minnick and Simpson. It came in other colors, but of course I gravitated to the red. I've had it for a few years and it's an on again/off again project and it's great to have a hand quilting project that can be picked up any time.
It's on again. This is the perfect pick up project for doing hand work while I catch up my my TV. I must get all those summer programs watched and deleted as all the new fall shows are starting up this week and I certainly don't have time for that much TV.

I like that I can grab this piece, roll it up and drop it into a tote and I've got a project for "one the go". I need one for this weekend.
Do you have a "take along" project always ready to go?

Very striking red & white!! I typically have embroidery packed & ready to go - my own addiction is to Crabapple Hill designs. Right now my take & go though is the applique houses from Blackbird Designs Home Sweet Home.

Kind of missing making all those cherries:o)

What a fun piece!! Of course red and white is perfect!!
No, I always have to scrounge around for a take a long project...I should change that.

Wow, I love this block! Do you know the name of it? What do you mean prestamed? Is that for the piecing? I''d love to find this pattern. Lovely...thanks for sharing!

Definitely need my daily fix too. This is going to be a beautiful quilt!

So, when you say it is a pick up project and this is a pre-printed fabric, you are talking about taking handquilting with your, right? I think I remember seeing this fabric. It is beautiful. For me...my take along projects are usually knitting now that BTCT is done....at least for now until I get busy on some of my other applique projects that are on the "waiting to do list".
