The first six...

The first six are done!  This is not the final order...still scheming on that. 

I thought I could get a better picture today, but alas it is a gray day in Michigan, and there is precious little bright natural light coming through the window.  It is good to lump the blocks together as I plan fabrics and colors for subsequent blocks...I can see I need more red, pink, and medium blue.  I think the purples in Mr. BOP will help as well. 

I still wish I could pour all my attention on this for a while...the more I do, the more I want to do.  I don't think I will ever get bored with this project!

Thank you, thank you for all of your beautiful posts...when I can't be in my sewing room, it is so nice to be sustained by all of your postcards from your quilting journeys.

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)
