Let's Just Call it a Random Tangent

Nicole over at the blog Sister's Choice Quilts found herself in a conundrum a few days ago. She'd started 4 or 5 quilts, like them all, and didn't have a really strong urge to work on any of them more than another. So, in a fun way to solve the problem, she asked her readers to vote on the one she should work on. The spring-y, cheerful blue and yellow ended up being the winner.

My vote was for a different project, but I do like blue and yellow quilts. I even commented to Nicole that I had just such a stash in my sewing room that was waiting for a project, and that maybe I'd just sew mine along with hers!

You know where this is going, right?

In a completely rash move, I just started cutting and sewing. I don't have a plan in mind; I don't have a pattern; I'm not sure how big it will be, nor what other fabrics I will use with it. So far I have 14 of these 9-patches and possibly enough fabric to make 3 more. Then I'll be forced to delve into the stash and (cross my fingers) hope I come up with something!!

Here is a sampling of the blue/yellow stash. I just pulled what was close by; trust me, there's more. :-)
It looks like an overload of yellow and white, but quite a few perfectly acceptable blues are in the stash, just waiting to be called to duty.

Thanks to Nicole for moving me into action! This will be fun!

Oh, what fun! We will have to link to each other's progress with our blue and yellow projects! What pretty fabrics you are using.
