I Drank the Water...and I'm Drowning in It!

Okay, so yesterday I posted that I went off plan and started something new that wasn't on my quilty "To Do" list. Then I sort of got sucked in with it. It's all the fault of this little square right here...
(not that it's really small; it's just over 24 inches!). Of course, it looks like this now.
Yeah, I sewed it together. I know. Put me in time-out. See if I care. And I just sealed my fate because here's what I did right after that.

Yeah, that's right! I got another one all cut out and the HST's sewn together. Whatcha' gonna do about it, huh?  Huh?!

Uh, right. I talk a big game but...I am very proud of where this is going though. And I DID get all the mistakes fixed in my girl twin quilt so I'm ready to work more on that! Plus, I think I'm just going to throw Embroidery 101 on the sewing machine as soon as I finish piecing this block together. That way I don't have a choice but to get it done. Happy Thursday!

I knew you would put it together once you had it all arranged so nicely. It takes a while to arrange it, no use putting the squares in a little bag and putting them on the shelf. Love the color choices of both blocks!

Woohoo! Good for you! Work on what makes you happy!

Wow! Both those blocks are lovely. I just signed up for the swoon along. Not too dissimilar in the way the block looks! Just waiting for my fabric to arrive but can't wait to get started!
