I started this one in March 2015 using Bonnie Hunter's Wild and Goosey pattern.  After I had many many blocks done I started looking at ways to put it together and nothing really sparked me.  I tried it with neutral sashings (didn't love it) and I searched other options and then it went on the shelf.  A year or so ago I found an idea for it that sparked me but I was wrapped up in other things.  Why is it so hard to get back into an old project?

This year I forced my way through it.  I committed to getting it done before I started a new quilt top.  It took a couple weeks of it hanging on the wall before I started to like it lol!

It's Bonnie's Wild and Goosey in the center of Bonnie's Diamond Tile block!

*Still not quilted but I've given myself permission to start a new pattern!

Thanks Chaly and Mavis!  Thanks Deb.  I have a few tops I need to get quilting on now.  It looks like there are 6 waiting!  [redface]  I haven't loaded the next one for quilting because of the PG&E power shut offs going on.  I have my longarm unplugged in case of power surges!  Hopefully the weather stops threatening dangerous fire conditions and PG&E stops threatening to pull the plug soon.  Then life can get back to normal and I can get some quilting done!
