Fabric from Down Under!

Lucky me, I recently won a giveaway from Little Mushroom Cap (One of my favorite Blogger's!), and have been anxiously checking my mailbox since I heard the news, even though I knew it would take a while coming from Australia. Alas, it has arrived & It is even better in person, Amira has great fabric sense!
 This morning I went straight-away to her site to let her know it is received, however I was side-tracked when I found her Churn Dash Tutorial, the newest block for her QAL. The focus of the QAL sampler blocks is the quilting, (done each month / quilt as you go blocks) -- a topic I need to relax with, so I went right to work cutting into my newest stash. I couldn't select just two fabrics, so I pieced in the third print. And I thought the selvedge title was appropriate for Vegas, so I left that in there too...
Lucky Penny Churn Dash!
I set a goal this weekend to clear my design wall for the backlog of projects in queue. The Hearts and Flowers Blocks have been there way too long - my heart was just not in it. I enjoyed making the monthly blocks because I enjoy the group of gals that meets monthly, but with no one in mind to receive it it was hard to motivate on it. I knew if I took them down, the blocks would never be completed, so I hemmed and hawed, but I came up with a plan,
And I tackled it!
I am going to fold and pack it away now that I have it together and actually like it, and I think it will be great fun to quilt it when the time is right. The bottom row is not attached, I am not positive how I will finish those two corners. I like them plain, but not sure so that will be decided down the road. I removed five blocks before I liked the quilt. Two of those will be pillows, or go into the backing.
