...from Tula Pink's "100 Modern Quilt Blocks" book...block #26. I've never been much of a 'pink' kind of person. But I think I'm warming up to it quite a bit now.
I've been working my way through Tula Pink's "100 Modern Quilt Blocks"....and I'm lovin' it! I'll post blocks 1-24 a little later. My precious machine was in the shop for awhile but I'm finally caught up with other quilters who are posting their blocks at www.sewsweetness.com.

While pulling fabrics from my stash, there are conversations with Self. They are befuddling to say the least. Self has a better color eye than I do. I pull the brownish leafy fabric and I like it. But Self says "Nope. Check out pretty dark swirly that you have been overlooking...like FOREVER." I say "Fine" and think that it will never match. But deep inside I know that fabrics don't always have to match....they just have to 'go'. So I pull the dark swirly. And, you know, Self was right. I need to listen to Self.
