More BOMs [Gen X]

I've been playing catch up again tonight and making the February blocks for the Gen X Sister BOM.

Gen X Quilters Sisters' Ten BOM 

This month's block is called Susannah and was beautifully easy - I do like fiddly, but sometimes straightforward is nice too!

I've made both blocks in a couple of hours including distractions.

The fabric is Paparazzi from Red Rooster - it's a ten fat quarter pack I won in a giveaway over a year ago and I'm really like how the fabrics are working for this quilt.

I've also been playing at putting some fabrics together: I had some of the aqua blues out for another project and the pink Flea Market Fancy ended up on top of them in the pile on my table - once I'd seen it I couldn't get it out of my head, so I pulled a few more fabrics from my stash (and possibly bought a few too) and now I have a beautiful pile of fabrics and nothing to do with them - so watch out - I'm looking for a new project.

And last Saturday I ordered some Art Gallery Rock and Romance for another project I have in mind....

And I've also ordered Art Gallery Poetica for a Double Wedding Ring I'm starting in a few weeks time.....

I really must get some projects finished in the next couple of weeks before I start something new - a week holiday next week will definitely help!

I love the colours in your pile of fabrics - looking very promising. Whatever you make I think those colours will work beautifully.
