This collection of Flea Market Fancy blocks is really where we get into Big Time Neglect. I started this quilt with true verve and excitement, having just seen Malka Dubrawsky‘s fabulous, modern sho- fly quilt. I had been saving and hanging onto my grey and orange Flea Market Fancy fabrics for just the right block, and I knew this was just the right one. Simple, bold and graphic against the Kona Coal…the combination really pleased me. Paired with Alexander Henry’s Farmdale Blossom print for a backing, I was even that much more excited.
Silly me, I have only 3 more blocks to go. But this quilt, like the others, has just sat waiting to be pieced and made into a quilt. This UFO and the others are part of my commitment to finishing what I’ve started in 2011. Whether you call them WIP’s or UFO’s or just call them “that project sitting over in the corner” join me in geting them done!
