I can't imagine sticking to just one project at a time. Don't get me wrong, I love quilting, its my absolute most favorite pass time, but I am totally honest when I say, I get bored doing just one thing at a time. Quilting or piecing a large quilt can take a few days of long hours to complete.
So for me doing just one thing for days, can become a drag. So when I got about half way quilting my Double Slice layer Cake Quilt I felt I needed a break and started working on some cute mini quilts / items to hang in my sewing room.
I really like how the dresden plate turned out. I pieced the petals together using the english paper piecing technique. It was fun and quick to complete. I was a bit undecided whether or not to quilt or hoop it. But the hoop clearly won the battle. I used selvage edges I started putting away for just something like this that I rolled around the outer frame of the hoop.
Its fun making something that can be finished in a day. I just know that this might become very addictive and it might be a new obsession brewing.
