quiltinjeanie: MIA

Where has the last week gone? I can't believe I haven't posted for a week! It has been a busy one, though. It went by in a blur of Thanksgiving with family, 2 surprise birthday parties (one sis turned 50 and one sis turned 60) and a bit of shopping on Friday. So maybe we come back to work to rest!
I did manage to get this new quilt cut out, so yesterday was excited to start putting it together. It is the Turning Twenty, #8. I have been itching to make something out of black and white, so this seemed like the perfect project for it.
I threw in 2 different pink and black fabrics for a little pizazz, so I hope it adds to the quilt, not distracts.
It is going together pretty quickly, even though I have to keep doing the math since I am making it smaller...12 fat quarters instead of 20.
At one point I had all of these sewn and cut to size and then thought I had made too many.
Luckily I refigured and it was right. Whew...don't you hate when that happens?
Sometimes the first time making something is an adventure!
I have the blocks ready to put will be sewing some more tonight.
I hope you had a great holiday weekend!

Black and white is one of my favorite combos. And the touch of pink is a great idea!! Can't wait to see it finished!!
