Did you enjoy a relaxing start to 2017? According to superstition, whatever you spend the first day of the year doing will set the pattern for the rest of the year. I don't believe in most superstitions, but didn't want to take any chances with this one, so I sewed for most of the day!
Bonnie revealed the end of the En Provence mystery quilt pattern yesterday. Did you see it? Her quilt is very beautiful, with lots of movement and complex block designs. I couldn't wait to get a block together to see what my colour choices would look like. I was already two steps behind, and there were even more QST blocks that were needed for step #7. It was a lot of sewing to get to this point, but here's the layout for my first block.
I am making a smaller version of her full size quilt (87" square) with 16 blocks. I am going to make mine 12 blocks and still have lots of sewing to do on block components. Here is my recycled spinach container that holds all the pieces and parts waiting to be made into blocks.

Here's the song I was listening to yesterday to start the new year... "leave what's heavy behind"!
