I've got no business dreaming up new projects. I need to work on my last block of Flight of Fancy. Elizabeth rushed to get the urn done before her vacation and I assured her it would be complete upon her return. Weeeellllll, I just don't see that happening when its after 4 already today and she'll be home tomorrow. I'm pitiful. No excuse.
But still, these old brushed Moda fabrics have been taunting me. If I was you, I'd be thinking I had some kind of amazing stash all managed in the most organized style. Sadly, you'd be mistaken. I have a good sized stash but it really does pale in comparison to others. But these fat quarters have been at the end of a plastic box in the den closet calling me.
Back when I first started working at a quilt store, more than 10 years ago, we used to make up a kit for a simple flannel quilt. It was small throw size, and contained 6 inch squares and some 3.25 inch squares for 4 patches, all in a nice little bag. You just made your random 4 patches, laid out the flannels in a pleasing manner and sewed them up. It was one of those easily made quilts and easily kitted as well. I made several of them, including a couple for Bret and Frankie. They're soft and very snuggly. So when I saw this pile again I thought gee, I wish I had a nice piece of floral that would mix in well so I could freshen the pile up a bit. And figured while shopping I'd look for something. And then I had the occasion to go through one of my boxes for something. I don't even remember what it was but hey, check it out. A nice floral that goes perfectly with this pile of wonderful fabric.
Of course I didn't find a pile of time to go with them, but it did get me in the mood to figure out how many squares to cut. And you know, avoid doing what I should be doing.
