inspiration overload

Well January went by fast!
I'm in the midst of finishing up a few little baby quilts right now and have been trying to plan my next project. I actually started to feel a little "stuck". There is just so much inspiration out there and lots of patterns and fabrics I want to try that I don't know which way to go! My Pinterest board for quilt inspiration has been growing like crazy the last few weeks. So has my Flickr favs.

Yesterday, I wrote down a list of quilts I want to make and what fabrics I want to use, etc.
Here are a couple of things that are on my definite to-do list:
  • Fancy Fox pillow for my son!
  • A Pacific Crest quilt from Beyond Neutral book (downloaded it on the iPad a few weeks ago; love lots of the designs in it!)
  • and lastly, I am wild about this fabric combo: 
Wild and Free plaid
Not a 100% sure what pattern I'll use yet but I just love the bright red against the Essex Yarn-dyed Black again the Wild and Free plaid fabric. Maybe add a little mustard in too.

Does this ever happen to you? You're all ready to sew and make something but you just don't know what to start with?

Yes...all the time! I seem to spend more time thinking about what I want to make than actually sewing!

I know! Sensory overload. I think I like your Flickr favs more than my own ; )
