Inspired or Insane?

This summer I picked up a fat pack of Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane with the idea I'd use it with the tutorial over at Quilting on Turtle Hill and make a Whirlygiggle quilt.  So this week I finally broke it out of it's shrinkwrap and started looking at the fabrics.  Maybe it's the polka dots (which I love) but I saw it coming together as more of a stripey thing with circles.  I also thought it would look nice done like Teaginny Deisgn's Pure Baby Boy.  So after playing with it for a while I decided I cut pieces for all three quilts at once.  I hate cutting so I might as well take advantage of the fact that it's already pressed and ready to go.  Here's where I am.

Now with a 10" cut from each fat quarter I can get my whirlygiggle rectanges, different length strips for my stripey thing and some bonus 2 1/2" squares .  We'll see if I can actually get all three quilts made before I run out of steam.  The real challenge will be quilting them all!  My TBQ pile runneth over...
