My craft guild at work met on Friday. I usually baste quilts or cut projects. In July I purchased the 2009 Collective Reds FQ bundle that includes 20 Kaffe Fassett FQs. When they arrived, they were not at all what I had in mind so they sat in a corner for a while. Needing something to work on Friday, I decided to cut the material into various size squares and rectangles. It appeared a little too busy so I then added a few Kona Cotton solids thus giving the eye a place to rest. These are all the units pieced (some of them are stacks as I ran out of space on the design wall.) I still needed to add spacers to get them all to fit.
I actually got the blocks and spacer units organized as best I could to space out the fabrics (remember, this was not planned ahead of time). SURPRISE, SURPRISE! As I played with the layout, I fell in love with it! Here is a final picture of the top (photo sideways as blogger sometimes does. The lime green print is the top left corner.) When I started working on this quilt I was all ready to gift it. Now, I'll have to rethink the plan; maybe, maybe not. This is my first quilt top using Fassett fabric predominately throughout the quilt. I have some more fabric that will arrive tomorrow so I'll plan another one and see which one I like best.

I want to thank those who commented on my site the last 2 weeks. I've been so busy that I just haven't had time to respond to each comment as I usually do. I don't have access to my personal email when away from home; can view blogs but e-mail sites are blocked. When I am home (which is very limited) I prefer to sew instead of being on the computer. My sewing time has suffered greatly since I started line dancing exercise classes (which I also enjoy.) Please know that I read each comment; just not able to respond to all of them.
