Here is today's JL block. The floral in this one is the Western Washington Shop Hop 2011 design from In the Beginning. I really like this fabric, too. Each time I grab a floral from the stack, it seems to become my new favorite. I have 12 blocks done now, so I decided I needed to put them on the design wall and see how it looks.
I am so excited with the secondary pattern that is emerging. The background fabric is working so well. I see so many things in the pattern - big fat arrows, chains, Xs, and squares. I am 1/3 done with the blocks I need for the size I want. I am so happy Freda decided to host this QAL. Stop over and see what else she is doing these days.
Today, I also decided to start a project I have been putting off because I was intimidated by the challenge. If you want to read more about the challenge, go here.

That is all for today. I did make more fabric for the BOMs, but decided I wanted to make enough for all the rest of the blocks before I cut into what I made. I didn't get any more blocks made for the Christmas quilt. Tom took me to my local chain fabric store to pick up batting. That was quite an interesting trip. I will write more about that tomorrow. Right now, the pizza is ready, and I am hungry.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
