That is if boys equals fabric and kissing equals quilt alongs...but really, what's a girl to do??
So, I've been pretty proud of myself this month for staying on top of the projects at hand. I've tried really hard to not look for distractions. I haven't purchased any quilting magazines this year and have made no huge fabric purchases. I have committed to participating in a few QAL's but decided that I have met my limit for now.
But there is one QAL I have been happily ignoring, Pat Sloan's 182 Solstice Challenge. Okay, maybe that came out wrong. I'm loving watching everyone who is making blocks, but I'm doing her Aurifil Designer BOM and her The Children's Library BOM, and decided I'm satisfied and probably shouldn't play along. With four other non-Pat QAL projects going on, I'm good.
WRONG!! This week, I caught a Facebook Live stream of Pat Sloan showing us her new line of fabric that just came to stores in the past few days. In the background looking all sexy on her design wall was her Solstice blocks, all nine of them. But I noticed something for the first time. They are not all neat little 12" blocks. This will be a quilt with an asymmetrical setting. I LOVE asymmetrical settings.
You know what this is a picture of? A squirrel. It's bouncing around the room so quickly you can't even see it. Instead of working on Stitchin At Home's QAL like a good girl, I started pulling from my stash to make the first Solstice Block, Churn Dash.
Followed soon by Day Into Night Block.
And I left off with Tide Pool.
So after an evening of staying over at work and coming home exhausted, three out of nine blocks isn't bad.
Oh, look, the squirrel finally slowed down enough you can see it! Sorry, my bad. That's just Caroline Kitty Cat peaking at me from behind my design wall. I'm pretty sure that's a look of disgust she's giving me for being a sad weak human. We shall see who's laughing when she's peacefully sleeping on this finished quilt in June.
Did you have a squirrel that distracted you from everything you should be doing this month? If so join me over at mmm!quilts for Sandra's DrEAMi linking party tomorrow. It's a place to let those critters run free.
