One Project Done – One Project Gets the Ax

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather this week so I haven’t gotten much done.  I did get the borders put on the little Disappearing 4 Patch quilt.

Disappearing 4 patchThis is a great size for a baby quilt.  I’m thinking of backing it in flannel so I can use it for that.  I also made one house and one tree block this week.

I bought the Kansas City Star on the day this month’s block came out (11 days ago).  I looked at it with all the applique flowers and leaves and put it away.  This week I was going to force myself to work on it but decided I needed more white fabric.  That was my excuse.  I really don’t think I’m going to be able to finish this quilt.  Life is short and there are so many other quilts I want to make.  The first block turned out cute though and will make a great pillow cover!

In other news, I’ve seen this quilt-along around the web:

I need to go out and find the April issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine because it has 3 different quilts that use the good old 4 Patch block.  I guess quilt bloggers all over have been making 4 patch blocks in anticipation of the magazine coming out – hence the “quilt along”.  I’ll probably have to put the magazine away for later because I DO NOT need to start any new projects.
