(a) brand new project(s)

Last year Just Sew did this quilt as their block of the month:

Too bad I wasn't the sewing demon I am now back in March of 2009.  I look at this quilt, and while it is not my style, I am dying to make one.  Or two.  Yup, I've decided on two.  One for me, one for a gift.  This is what I managed to get done last night:

Eli is still sick but I feel like I still managed to get quite a bit done.  It really is going quite quickly.  I should make quilts like this all of the time.  The second block takes me about 1/4 of the time as the first block.
Anyone else have an ambitious new project going?

Oooh! I love this! You got so much done. I may have to take some inspiration from you! Great job.

Beautiful. I'm going to have to check out this book. Looks promising. Your quilt is definitely going to be spectacular.

Hi Jandi - As you saw my ambitious project will be one for Halloween. A little early to be thinking of fall but working on a deadline. Since it's a feature, I can't say much but I'm sure we'll have fun creating it. You look like you are much quicker than us, beautiful work.

Hi Jandi, it's beautiful! And I cannot believe you got so much done in one evening! You put me to shame!

That quilt is going to be cute!

I have this book! I drool over the quilt on the cover all the time! ;-) Maybe I should actually make it one of these years too. ;-)) Yours is going to be beautiful!

You are a crazy woman!!! Can't believe you got all of those done in one night! Good job!

I just bought a bunch of fabrics to start a new rooster quilt - actually two (one is for a gift too - we're on the same page aren't we?) I really was suppose to be FINISHING projects though, so it's bitter sweet.
