    And before I set my machine to quilting mode I threw in an improvised bag, made from scraps left from sewing cushions.

    I always have several things going and several more in the thinking about stage! I had a couple friends over for lunch and then we played on the long arm. Had them quilt on muslin first then put potato fabric on, so that they can make potato bags from r the microwave. They will have a tangible item with their first efforts and a reminder of the fun we had todayof course, I had to clean house and the sewing room before they arrived, so now my space looks bigger!

    Can't decide
    On what I want to work on next.

    Different projects going on at different steps, that is also my strategy. Actually, there is right now kind of excess accumulation of tops-waiting-to-be-quilted. I put my big girl panties and basted two this afternoon.

    I'm the same way, always 2 or 3 in various stages of progress and ten more in the imagination. When I'm working on clothing and costumes it's even crazier because I try to streamline by stages in production ;-)

    Thanks!! Sometimes I think I might be AD. But I do like jumping to one thing then another!

I would also use the two grays in the background & maybe a few other FQ's of gray that I forgot to put in the picture.

    I really like your choice of fabrics , colors , and pattern. I for sure want to make a yellow and gray quilt.
    I am trying to finish up a purse for granddaughter, when I get tired of it I have been making a tote bag and then when I get bored with that I have quilt I am putting the borders on. I always jump around doing things like that , I wish I wasn't like that! ☹️

    I've been playing catch up with my SPlendid Sampler blocks. This month I'm basically doing just blocks but as long as I'm having fun I'm okay with that
    Very cute!!

    I'm always daydreaming of at least 2 or 3 or 10 new projects while I'm finishing up one... I love a tidy sewing room too.

    I made my decision and finally sewed my units together, so I have all the En Provence blocks and sashing pieces ready to attempt assembling tomorrow. Then I'll need to do some math to figure out how many neutral patches I need to add to the border, as I am going for a smaller version than Bonnie Hunter's.
    It is not that I am really pleased with my yellow fabrics, but I am trying to think "finished is better than perfect".

I find the instructions from the company hard to understand, and, for the most part, not very accurate! There are several Facebook groups devoted to this appliance. My favorite site for recipes is: http://www.pressurecookrecipes.com/e...t-pot-recipes/ I used their instructions for rice and it turns out wonderfully.
    All my FB friends are why I bought mine, lol. One of my friends is a chef and she posts the most amazing stuff. I really should take the thing out of the box & give it a whirl.

    This is the Jazz pattern from the book All About Strips. It is on the cover of the book. It has a couple of nice patterns in the book. The strips are not necessarily jelly rolls or 2.5" width.
