How many Mystery-Quilt-a-longs can I do at one time? And actually get anything done?

Mom used to say that my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
Meaning that I would take more food than I could eat.
I think that also applies to my quilting appetite.
I take on many more projects than will fit in my schedule.

I won a 40 fat quarter bundle of the Little House on the Prairie fabrics from Andover fabrics at Quilt Market in October. The Andover website actually broke them up into three coordinating lines.
I wanted to make sure I used them. On something. Relevant. Not just beautiful shelf decoration!

I signed up for Dear Laura Little House on the Prairie Mystery Quilt Along
at LoveBug Studios. Ebony's previous mysteries look great, so I wasn't scared of not knowing the outcome.
Since I have most of the fabrics, but only in fat quarters, I will be making both ma and pa colorways. Some blocks in one, some in the other. They all look great together. It will just look more scrappy than the original.

I have almost all the fabric,  except the solids, which is required in the very first blocks.
Darn. Gotta go shopping for fabric.
This may take a while.
