The last block

I just finished my Aunt Dinah blocks for the exchange. This will be my last exchange for at least a year. I just need time to get more of my unfinished projects done before I commit to anything else. Can't wait to see what everyone else is doing!
I also finished my last appliqued block for Grandma's Flowers. When I started I didn't know if I'd actually make the quilt the size of the pattern. I didn't' know if I could finish all 20 blocks. Well, I'm happy to say I did it!
What to work on now? I really want to start something new, but as you can see on my sidebar I should really finish something I'm working on. The lady bug quilt would be quick to finish, but it's a baby quilt and I'm a little discouraged in the baby department these days. I should finish Jake's football quilt, I have all the 4 patches done and just need to put the rows together, but it doesn't sound fun at the moment. I could start on the borders and sashing on the flowers..... I could, but I really want to start something new. I have two layer cakes and three jelly rolls that I am trying to resist. I'm in the mood to stipple 1974, but I don't have the right color of thread. I just really want to start something new. I'm going to be strong though!
