St. Paddy's Day in April..process

How does one avoid finishing quilts??  Well, just start a new one instead:)  I decided that I need a St. Paddy's Day quilt...so I started one. Never mind that that holiday is way gone... I chose a number of Irish fabrics and greens and golds.  It is only with distance that I see pieces of my son's old boxers with oriental symbols!!  In my Irish quilt..ha ha...  So I started that ubiquitous disappearing nine patch and ended up putting a nine patch back together...Lordy....I also see that the color is not true tonight in my sewing room.
 
 
 Process is a tough thing...trying to get it right.
 I can see that my old cat Milito likes it just fine!  He tells me not to fret and pet him instead.
Putting in the one inch black batik for definition...Better pix in the yard tomorrow.  And, as for the other WIP's/UFO's......well....what can I say???

I really like the little black print strip in there. Great colors in the quilt too.
