You see, I am such a sucker for stuff like this. I know these are quilts I can make but one can only have so many on their docket at once. I already have three Judy Niemeyer patterns, Dear Jane, another Kim McLean pattern Stars and Sprigs... I think there may be others too, oh yeah... this lovely project.
... I need need to have some one to tell me to stop! If I can't have the sewing machine of my dreams, I guess I can afford these patterns.

Ooooo I LOVE these!

What is the harm in collecting patterns? Just because you really love them??

Think of how many garment sewers collect patterns. I have quite a few myself and I simply will NOT part with any of them. I did once, and I DEEPLY regret it.

NO comparison between the cost of a machine and the cost of a pattern. So stick up! Then you will HAVE it in your hand when the moment strikes you to use it!

What breathtaking quilts. Do you really want to be saved from yourself? Where's the fun in that?

I'm right there with you I love these. But they are a lot of work as I found out with my Orchard project that is still unfinished. I love Kim's stuff. I still have Celestial Dream to do.

omg all are just amazing! Yes get the patterns for when you've less on your plate!! What if they quit making these down the road?? *pfft* patterns are nothing cost wise compared to machines :-)

I'm in love with the Hexies and Diamonds one! Not yet and not for the next couple years as I hope to hone in on what type quilts I like to make, and this complex would take me years to even cut. Next year I bet you would start on one of these IF you had the patterns!

Nope, not going to stop you on these

This crazy analogy just came to me. Please don't anyone take offense.

Quilts like that, to me, are like babies. They are beautiful, I love them, I appreciate them, I love looking at them, I am glad there are people in the world that want to make them. But I have never, not even the slightest inkling, ever had the urge to make one myself.

LOL! I am certainly not offended.

There are all KINDS of beautiful quilts I love to look at but have no desire to even consider making.

And babies have a habit of growing into TEENAGERS!

Don't blame you ONE BIT for not wanting that special joy either

Not offended either, quilts like that are a lot of work, a lot of energy, a lot of decisions, a lot of time and can be a lot of money. I learned that doing Orchard which of course still isn't finished. One thing about these type quilts when ever I get around to working on Celestial dream is to do a design with blocks or borders, so you have some sense of accomplishment when you finish a block or a border piece, really Celestial dream is just a series of applique borders, so you could really stop at any time and design around them. Orchard was a whole cloth quilt so it isn't finished till it's finished. And the thought of sewing around all those pieces is overwhelming. I think the only way that I will ever finish it is to go around the shapes roughly with a small zigzag stitch with clear thread. I'm honestly amazed I got as far with it as I did. And will probably really think twice about doing something like it for a while. My next applique piece will probably be the Lori Smith folk art designs and then maybe another Edytar Sitar pattern. Her shapes are simple and easy to sew around. But I love the part about picking the fabrics for all the elements. Think that's why I'm drawn to these type of quilt projects.
