tipping the scales?

When does a series of quilts tip into a "crazy cat lady" obsession?
The solids and prints quilts have been a wonderful way for me to revisit deep stash as we have prepared for our move.
I like them as they give me a focus. I figure out what block to work with, and, with repetitive cutting and sewing, a new quilt results.
I do look forward to something else taking my interest soon. Until then, this continues.

Completed so far: (not all photographed and posted yet as some have been packed up already)

I really admire the way you have mixed your solid fabrics with the deep stash. It's such a great way to use up some of those fabrics that were probably more interesting years ago when we first bought them! Definitely taking notes for a future quilt! I had to laugh at your 'crazy cat lady' theory though. That's exactly what I've been wondering about my basket quilts! It seems like there's always another one popping up on the horizon around here!

Your quilts are wonderful! You are not a "crazy cat lady", you just work with what you like! Keep it up!
I'm trying to make quilts from stash ...... but my attention span is very short and I easily get sidetracked so things progress very slow.....
Good luck with your move!

I agree with everybody! They're beautiful. It would be great to see them hanging all together - a show in a large enough space that one could step back and really look at them.
