These are the blocks I finished during yesterday's Friday Night Sew In. It was great to have some time "blocked out" for sewing. When I'm done with this post in a minute or two, I plan to working on a few more.
Prayer Flag and Flora are the Charm Packs I'm using in this Another Year Of Schnibbles project for February. I.s.t.h. has been going together really well for me, but I did have some trouble picking out the fabric for my setting triangles. I guess that's what I get for starting on the blocks before I had the rest of the fabrics picked out. I spent some time in two quilt shops looking for setting triangle fabric to go with the blocks I'd already done and the yellow is what I came up with. Maybe I'm having a little trouble loving it because it's not exactly what I was picturing. The fabric I had envisioned had more of a combination of all the colors I was using in it, not a tone on tone. The fabric I wanted didn't seem to exist, at least not anywhere near my house, and I plan.....notice I do say plan.....to have it done fairly soon, so I went with the yellow. Do you usually pick out fabrics for a quilt all at once, or do you decide as you go along?
While I was shopping yesterday, I also found this great fabric called Urban Keys. At some point I'd like to make the Reader Wrap for my e-reader. It's another Atkinson Designs pattern.

Earlier in the week I finished another Lollipop Bag. I just can't stop making them! This one is for my friend Mary Pat. We plan to swap bags later and when we do, I'll be sure to share the pictures! I think she'll love the fabrics, so I'm keeping it a secret! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
