Blockheads 2 - block 1

Last year I was too busy working on my Quilter's Recipe Box to participate, so this year I was super excited to sew along with Moda's Blockheads!  I pulled a fat quarter bundle that I've been saving for just the right project - and am looking forward to working with these fun florals all year.  This is Aloha Girl by Joanna Figueroa (Fig Tree Quilts).  I love the lively colors in this bundle!

I'm hoping to stay on task and not get behind - one block a week isn't too much after all.  Here is the first block: 

I was warned that those dark blues may bleed when washed.  I certainly hope not, and will for sure take precautions.  I did not prewash, so I am a little concerned.  Not sure what I will do at this point, I could try washing a piece and see what happens, but then I would want to wash the rest.  Maybe I will just stay in denial and forget about it for now...I don't know.

Today's goal is to get the top done for a t-shirt quilt.  I have most of the squares ready so that shouldn't take me too long.  Oh, I do have a beaded dress that needs to be taken in, so I should put another hour in on that.  Happily, I can say that I have got the rest of my alterations done, so now I can work on quilts - hip hip hurray!

Oh, and don't forget, day two of the Where Flowers Bloom blog hop!

TODAY - Tuesday, June 12th

Have a wonderful day!
