Block of the Month

I need another project like a hole in my head!

But since joining Pat Sloan's Facebook group, I've been watching everyone working on the first block for her 2015 Mystery Block of the Month called Vacation Time. And I really like the block!

This one is very similar to what I have in my head.

So I've been gathering my fabrics. I'm really trying hard to shop my stash for coordinating colors and correct amounts.

I really want to do another purple and aqua quilt.

I don't want the green to dominate. But Pat calls for 4 different greens. I'm just trying to pull green from the green/aqua batik. Maybe the dark greens make them dominate over the aqua?

Or this? And use a bit more purple and aqua (and my beloved Cuzco by Kate Spain).

So I feel like I've been wasting lots of time dithering about it this weekend.

So I quit to start the Amish Star for the baby's quilt.

And what else did I accomplish this week?

Folded Star

4 Corners of Happy by Blue Ribbon Designs from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Vol 10. I won a copy of the volume on the blog tour from Blue Ribbon, and she threw in a little kit to make her block! She used her Accuquilt to cut all the patches for it. I've never worked with die cut patches before, and it was pretty nice. She even pre-fused the appliqué pieces--it was a snap to put together, and blanket-stitch appliqué!
