Flurry of Excitement

The quilting class has begun in earnest. Our first block is to be a log cabin quilt block. Traditionally, this block has darker colors on one side and lighter on the other. In the middle is a red square, known as the "hearth." Isn't that perfectly warm and lovely? I was super-tired at the end of the day yesterday and told myself that I'd wait until today to start cutting and piecing. But the more I thought about that lovely stack of Flurry fabric, the more I was drawn to playing just a little bit. I refrained from actually sewing yesterday, but I freely admit to dreaming all night about this pretty mess left on my table when I went to bed.
