Chuga-Chuga-Choo-Choo!

blocks 1-3
I think I can!  I think I can!  I think I can!  Three blocks down in the My Precious QAL!!!!  My goal was to do 20, but I discovered after sorting my Heather Ross stash that I really only have enough color variation for 16.  That's ok, 16 is plenty for a quilt!


block 2
I was happy to be able to use a tiny bit of KJR ribbon flowers in this one!  I only had a tiny piece left from my KJR quilt scraps so it's fun to put it to use!

block 3
I have to be honest, this one was hard for me.  I may have hesitated for a while about using the Jungle Book fabric.  It's my only piece!  That's also almost all of my Tula Pink Flutterby green lady bugs!  *sigh* It's tough trying to set a good example sometimes when all I want to do is put my fabric safely back into its bin......whole, perfect, mine.  All mine.  Anyone else having trouble?  :)  Have you guys checked out the Flickr group?  Lots of great goodies are getting ready to be sliced!  Sarah is already off to a great start!

Did you know there are more than 100 people joining in now?!?!?  I'm totally blown away!!!  You guys are awesome and so brave to cut into your precious stash!

ah...it's good to know that it's even hard for you. Never fear...you have friends who will give you more of your most precious fabrics if you really need one to spare just for petting. ;)

These are beautiful so far! I can see why the Jungle book piece was hard to use, but it looks so nice in that block! I haven't started anything, and probably won't until next month.
