After making tons of Flea Market Fancy 9 patch blocks last year, I hit a standstill. I didn’t like the way I had arranged them, so I let them sit. For some reason, late last night, I pulled them out, started arranging, and finally liked what I saw. That’s always a nice feeling! I decided on this block design last year because I had just a bit of each Flea Market Fancy print (a whole lot of swapping and a whole lot of luck!); many of them were 2 1/2” strips. Can’t wait to make more progress on this quilt.
On another note, if you follow me on twitter, you might have heard that for the first time in a decade, my husband and I are “racing” head to head in a triathlon in May. The swim is pretty short, I have almost no chance of beating him, but that won’t stop me from talking a bit of trash. (History: In 2002 he beat me by 11 seconds. I’m pretty sure if we were racing head to head I would have beat him. Ha!) It also is the push I need to up my game. So, today I took 2 two year olds on an hour long bike ride… and now I’m exhausted. Nap time, everyone! Happy Wednesday. Enjoy seeing all of the other fabulous WIP projects today.
