My new project has been a long time coming, and was spurred on entirely by Nettie's Market Quilt (A Quilt is Nice) as pictured:

Much time has been spent considering just how best to use my Flea Market Fancy stash; many different layouts were contemplated at length. It has, once again, come back to keeping it simple.
It is time to Stitch It rather than Stash It.
I have spent oodles of time cutting individual squares to ensure a random layout of color and pattern. More than 400 squares each cut as 3.5 inch squares.
The process of sewing rows together has commenced and I am really enjoying working with the colors and prints. I love watching the quilt top emerge from the patchwork pieces. Although I already have a pretty good idea of how the quilt is going to look, I am still very excited about this project.
Working with precious Flea Market Fancy fabrics is a joy!
