First I want to thank everyone for the pattern love from my Kaleidoscopic Kites quilt. I really hope that if anyone makes a quilt from it, you will send me a photo. I would love to see them!
I was planning on waiting to share these (and more) blocks when I had one of my next projects finished, but I am just horrible at waiting. So I will share, but I will save the final plan for them to be a surprise. No, they won’t be in a quilt together.
The first block features fabric from Heather Ross’s Far, Far Away I collection as well as bits and pieces I somehow have of F lea Market Fancy. And speaking of Heather Ross, she just unveiled her fabric for Far, Far Away III.
The second block was made mostly with fabric from Laurie Wisbrun.
I hope everyone had a happy Easter holiday. I had to share these pictures with you – I figured anyone with a toddler and/or preschooler could commiserate. These are just a few of my failed attempt to photograph them together. Oh well, maybe next year!

I created this block last night for the “secret mission” group, Project Improv. This is a result of randomly grabbing at fabrics and sewing them together with no real plan. I did excitedly throw in a little of the fabric I dyed last fall (the stripe). This block will join many others to become a really cool quilt for a special mom-to-be.
I’m also really happy to be joining efforts with several other modern quilters to raise money for survivors of the disaster in Japan. Please visit Modern Relief – Japan and stay tuned for more details very, very soon.
