Dear basketfull of itty triangle scrappiness, your days are numbered.
My friend is due with a baby soon, and I've been planning her quilt since... I don't know, October? For me that's a long time. I really thought I'd be working on it right now, but turns out I'm making a quilt for Color Intensive instead that's taking, literally, all my sewing time.
Is it just me or is there always a project you are "supposed" to be making, and another that you want to be making, and yet another that you really wish you could start right this very moment? Ironically, the one you're "supposed" to be making was before the one you were raring to start. It's all a matter of perspective, right?
Sometimes I let myself start multiple projects and switch around a good bit based on my mood. Feels good and can really keep that motivation flying. But... it can also lead to project backlogs with really slow-going progress.
This time I wasn't even being finicky; I was plain busy. Still, the fact that I started these stars awhile back and have barely added to them irks me. Happily the star points are made entirely with binding triangle scraps!
So, for now, these stars are on hiatus, but they will be. I promise they will be!
