Thinking about a new project

Is this going to be it?
Little embroidery figures I made last year (including a "Julie Jackson" in Dutch) combined with some red fabrics. I need more fabric :-)  


And I need a design... blocks, some sort of log cabin maybe...

To sash or not to sash

that's the question ;-)
Showing a WIP for a change. Used this wonky-cross-block tutorial by Elizabeth Hartman:

Started when I found the yellow print in a stack of Tula Pink fat quarters I bought some time ago, but never got around to using...the colors in it were too bright for my taste. Now I decided to use them separately and the yellow one "spoke" to me. Found some turquoise and yellow charms to match. The turquoise print is from De Haan & Wagemakers. Need to find another matching print... and need to decide whether or not to add sashing between blocks.

Finished quilt... oh no... unfinished quilt...

 I discovered a Kaffe Fassett print I loved and found some sollid charms that matched perfectly... so a quilt was planned and finished the week before Christmas: 

I used a cotton-wool filling... and washed it... after that it looked like this:

oopsss... All the quilted lines had to come out, the filling is out and now I can start over.
 How to prevent this from happening again?!
