Finding My Groove

Lesson #2 with Katie Pasquini Masopust arrived in my inbox early Tuesday morning.  Oh dear.  I thought that I'd have a few minutes (hours) of down time between assignments, but that wasn't the case.  I read the assignment, and my mind started spinning.  What to do?  How to attack this?  It took 3-4 times of reading through the assignment to realize that there is a quilt I've wanted to make that will fit the bill perfectly.  I went through my stash, and pulled fabric.
 I was missing a few hues that I really wanted to include, so a shopping spree was in order.  I started by ordering 12 yards of batiks from Hancocks of Paducah, since they on sale for $6.99/yard.  Such a deal, such a deal.

But none of the batiks fill the gap in my color runs, so then I went to Thimble Towne.  There I found some barely violet blues and a pinky color (it's not as coral as it looks in the image) and purples that fill the bill.  I will probably begin cutting and sewing on Saturday, at least that's the goal, for now.
I've also pieced an entire baby quilt in the past two days, and worked more on my applique from the 2014 David Taylor class.  Yes, I seem to be getting my groove back, and it's bringing a smile to my face.  woohoo!  Happy Quilting!
