Longest Seam on the Whole Planet!!!

This is a quilt top I promised last fall to make for a charity that I wanted to help:
Me be bad!!  I am just now getting around to sewing the first seam on this Strippity-Do-Dah quilt top.  That first seam is 840 inches or 70 feet long!!!  This first seam always seems to intimidate me even though I have already made 4 other Strippity-Do-Dah quilts.  Now that this first seam is done, I can get this quilt top finished and off to a good cause this week!!!

Am I the only one in the quilting world that keeps starting new projects because there are sooooooo many cool quilts out there to make???  If I have one quilt started I have 30 started.  Luckily I do complete one once in awhile but not until I have started 10 others!!  I just want to try everything.  And I am not so sure I want to be cured of this malady - its just way to much fun starting another new quilt!!

Oh, well, onward and upward.  I suppose as long as I finish a few here and there - ya know, the really important ones, then life is good and a lot of fun!!  Hee! Hee!

But you said the magic word that so many miss - FUN. Making it all fun is the trick. Then the mundane goes faster.
