Glutton for Punishment....

I've got approximately 40 UFOs to begin with (counting the two Christmas gifts) - I didn't need another one, but I signed up for a Flower Basket block swap on canadianquiltswappers. The blocks aren't due to the hostess until February 1st, to be returned by February 15th.

I have the fabric washed and ironed and the floral fabric cut. I hope to finish cutting the basket part today. It is a very simple block - 4 pieces to put together - so I hope they will go together quickly. I need to do 14 for the swap, but am doing 16 blocks - that way I can lay my quilt out in a 4 x 4 grid as long as the repeated block doesn't stand out too much. I am thinking of making this a qayg project. We'll see when I get the blocks in and squared up. I am thinking of using a nice green for sashing.

I continue to quilt on the Magic Tile. The green Bear's Paw just needs to be squared up and bound. I haven't gotten to that yet. I hate binding so I am putting it off. I think I am going to grit my teeth and get it done on the weekend. I have to finish the peicing and baste the Hawaiian this weekend so I have something to take with me that's relatively small for when I am working in the city next week.
