What you see here is the center block and about half of the big surrounding blocks from a BOM that the Fat Quarter Shop distributed several years ago. I got those eight surrounders done before losing interest. The Fat Quarter Shop is terrific -- they give you patterns with very clear and specific instructions, and abundant fabric. I've never been disappointed by them. No affiliation, yadda yadda. The thing about this BOM, though, is that it is from Before I Took The Pledge, i.e., it is made entirely from one line of fabric, Moda's "Martinique." At the time I subscribed, I thought it was gorgeous. I still think the colors are pretty. But it is so matchy matchy!
I think I can bring myself to finish it, mostly because the blocks are all new to me, and I enjoy the challenge of a new block. When it becomes a flimsy, it will go on the stack waiting until a gift is needed and then will be quilted.
And that's all she wrote tonight.
Yours once again for Mucinex, codeine, and this time perhaps the infamous hot toddy . . . .
