New Project

I found this pattern I want to piece in one of my quilt books, Fat Quarter Fun by Karen Snyder. It takes 30 fat quarters and a couple of yards of an accent color for pinwheels and binding. The background is completely scrappy and blendy (is that a word?). I love scrappy backgrounds. I want to utilize my stash. After all, what is it for but to use? Right? Right? I may have to buy a few more background pieces; but then, I may just squeak by. I think I will start cutting today so if I need more I can get it on Friday. Oh, on Friday Robin and I are going on a Quilt Run in the San Diego area. Seventeen shops in all. Yes, we are wacky.
