I decided to use some of my very precious Flea Market Fancy, including some of my original FMF to make a mini quilt to go near my wall of fabric. I also have a mini going on with some spools blocks but this came to me and I just had to go for it. I took some strips of some of the FMF and stitched them together and then got cracking with some letters. I used my new pattern from Elizabeth Hartman. So much fun! The letters are paper pieced using freezer paper. I cut a few of the pieces for the A on the bias and it adds a certain "je ne sais quoi." I like it! I just cannot decide if I am going to hand quilt it or machine. Hmmmmm. That is why I let it sit and stew all day long. I have the binding already to go and it is sandwiched too but... Thinking time required!
