Heck, I think this counts as therapy!

Excellent.  I knew there was a reason I liked you!  Smiley You excel at rationalizing!

It took maybe a couple of hours to sew all the peices together -- the time consuming parts are the cutting and the ironing!

I'll put something in the picture for scale the next time I finish a block to help with perspective.

It's lovely!!! I really like the 'random' arrangement -- looks like a bright flower meadow! I like that you're using the backs as well. Sometimes there is a risk with too many colours close together that they blend together to look kind of grey from a distance (from experience with painting) -- but your block just looks sunny and bright.

Really look forward to seeing the final quilt!!

Thanks y'all!  I can't wait to see the finished quilt either!  Smiley

Thanks for the encouragement on the haphazard arrangement Ms Marple (the statistician in my won't allow me to call it random! Wink )

AM, I think there's one of your fabrics in this first block -- it's pink.  Zen is a good term for this.  I feel very "in the moment" working on it.

Block #2 (green with gold stars) is what the linings on my son and Husband's Christmas stockings are made from.

P.S. Kat, check my Flickr, I scanned a bunch of bitty pieces to send to you!
