Life’s Full of Tough Choice, Isn’t It?

Today was a day for decisions. Yesterday, I cut the pieces for the twelfth block for the 2014 FQS Mystery BOM and began piecing it. These were the first two pieces.

Now, I must confess that today I realized that my husband had unselfishly shared RSV with me. Hopefully, I won’t feel as lousy as he does, but it did make me pause when considering whether or not I should do any sewing. Yes, I probably should have napped at least once, but I went to assemble this one.

I’ve been thinking of this as block twelve, but when I looked carefully, this is actually block 11. Block 12 is the one I had so much trouble with last week.

Here are all twelve blocks. Well, you can see 11 1/2 of them. Small room, cutting table in the way.

This brought me to decision time. What would I work on next? The finishing kit for this was already cut out. But Charlotte’s Clue 3 for Surrounded by Scraps came out yesterday and all those pieces were also already cut out. Then there are also the magenta blocks for Getting to Know Hue. What to do? What to do?

I opted to start the finishing kit for the 2014 Designer Mystery BOM. First up was this block, same size as the other 12.

I also put together 8 12 1/2 inch hourglass blocks. Then the illness caught up with me and I figured I’d better quit for the day. Vegging in front of the TV now. Hoping to do more tomorrow.

Quilt on!

    Hope you feel better. I am so thrilled that all of these blocks are finished and you can start putting it together. I am sure you will have another finish soon.
