Instead, I got focused on selecting fabrics for this block. This is my third (of 16!) block from Kim McLean's Lollypop Quilt pattern. I love it -- but choosing fabrics and making decisions makes me a little nuts.
The patterns are well done but they take a lot of paper! And once I got the pink block done, it seemed silly not to do another one! No sense gluing the pieces down for just one block.
That leads to deciding on the primary color for that next block and digging into my tote of Kaffe fabrics!
I ended up with yet another block prepped that is not in the colors that make me most comfortable (blues and reds and purples!). I have added a bobbin to the lower right hand circle to get a perspective on the size of the blocks.
So -- what now? I have devoted the entire week to tracing, prepping, selecting, cutting, gluing, and pinning wonderful fabrics to patterns that make me very happy. Before I pull out the Roxanne's appliqué glue -- maybe I should prep one more! After all, I need 16 and I only have two completed and these two ready to finalize. And, there are about a million small applique blocks for the border -- but I can't even think about those right now!
I hope you have had a good week doing whatever makes you happy -- and playing with great fabric!
