Tula Pink Modern Block 26

...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.

conversations with Self

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 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.
