This is block 4 of Simply Delicious, all finished. I really enjoy this work, but after I finished this block, I was kind of burned out. I didn't photograph it, even though it's been done for over 2 weeks. I was just tired of applique.
So, I switched my finger work to a couple of other projects that I can do while I watch TV and spend time with the family and I started a new quilt. There's nothing like a new quilt to chase the blues away.
The new quilt is one that I designed myself to use some quarters of Pom Pom de Paris from Moda. This fabric is so not me. I think I'd had too many coffees when we went to the quilt show a few weeks ago and I picked up these quarters. I don't do many florals and when I tried to find other fabrics in my stash to go with them, I drew up a big zilch, so that meant I had to go shopping for some flowery blenders. I replaced the blue in the pic below with a light silver blue and added another pink, another yellow and another green. I think it's taken about 14 quarter yards of well matched fabric and a yard and a half of a gold to tie it all together.
I am too close to finished piecing to share a pic now, but it won't be but a day or two. I'm on the last two borders.
On a different note, my little neice is going to a hospital for tests this afternoon, so if you have some spare thoughts, I'd really appreciate it. I don't think it's serious. I suspect that it's what she eats, or maybe what she doesn't eat. At least that's what I have my fingers crossed for.
Take care and have a great Tuesday. Lane
