3:30 AM and what to do.....

After waking up for the third time this morning at 3:30 AM (and yes, wide awake) after a really strange dream, I decided to get up and stay up.   But what does a quilter do when they can't sleep....well if you are me you don't try to cut anything 'cause fingers tend to get in the way of moving rotary cutters at that time of the morning (guess how I know that!).   So I dug out a set of swap blocks from back in February of 2011 to start sewing together.

The blocks are 5" by 8" finished size, and I have 88 of them to play with.   I plan to put 36 of them into this quilt and then do a second quilt with the remaining ones.   After borders are added both quilts will be sent to Sunshine Quilts.

Border plans include adding an inner border of black Kona and then one of my bright, multi-color prints for a final border.

Gratitudes:
1. Warmer weather is coming back in a day or two!

2. Only 6 weeks till Quilt-Con and my weekend there with my best quilting buddy.  =)

That's a great use of those blocks! I know Sunshine will appreciate it, too. Yeah, stay away from the rotary cutter!
