A little more........

I only got three blocks done yesterday.  I got sidetracked with some computer clean up.  I need to update the 'pages' on the right side bar and I made a little progress.  I hadn't added photos to any of the categories for so long.  There is more to do though.
I played around with meshing the blocks together.  I have to make a whole lot more of the small ones or cut some filler squares with fussy cut 7.5" squares of the big prints.
This is the whole group of blocks so far.  I have 3 more large blocks cut out and unless I decide I need a certain color added, that is all of the large blocks I will make.  Then I can get serious about a layout.
I also chose a backing for this quilt.  I originally had 2 Kaffe prints as contenders but I decided I need to save them for borders on future quilts and not waste them on the back.
This was my original first choice for the back but when I laid it out to double check how much I had, it was a couple inches short of what I needed.  That prompted me to look for other fabrics for the back.

Wow, the mix of light and dark Kaffe Fassett prints looks almost jewel like on the screen. It's so pretty!
I definitely need to take some time to clean up my sidebars too. It always seems to be on the bottom of my list.

The only way I would put Kaffe on th e back is if were one of my two sided quilts...and then It would be small pieces.

This may seriously be one of my most favorite quilts I have ever seen!! Wish I had a big enough Kaffe stash to make my own. What a beauty!
