I've been hunkered down on the couch for most of the last week. I hate being sick for the obvious reason, cuz it's no fun, but also cuz I get nothing done. I feel so guilty for being such a sloth. But "it is what it is" and I've come off the couch today and pulled out a UFO to work on.
I saw this quilt over at FilmintheFridge.com several years ago and fell in love with it's simplicity. I had one jelly roll of beautiful Jennifer Paganelli fabrics and wanted to do a simple quilt pattern that would showcase the fabrics. This is a relatively recent UFO - I believe I started it last March or April. I have about thirty blocks currently made and squared up. I can make 40 blocks with the jelly roll and then will cut some 2 1/2" strips from my Paganelli scraps to make a total of 48 blocks. Jennifer actually lives here in my town and I am lucky enough to go to her regular SIS Boom sales. I love picking up her scrap bags and fat quarter bags. Such treasures.
I also spent a little more time on the Kathleen Star Winter Solstice BOM. I want to get this block finished by the end of February so I guess tomorrow (Thursday) is the day. I won't meet all of my February goals but this one I can do. I only have the center tips to make and then assemble all the parts. When it's finished I'll get a picture with natural light.
