A little weekend sewing

The good news is that I have sourced the Michael Miller Pindot Garden fabric for Spaghetti Junction from the FQS.  It is winging its way to me right now as I write this post.

With this excellent turnaround in the creation of Spaghetti Junction, I was able to make the decision of which fabric to use for block B.....and I am going with that luscious, rich, one tone fabric.  I set to cutting out the fabric for this.  Now, if you read my previous post relating to this quilt, you will remember that the layer cake I am using was not exactly 10in so I am having to adapt the pattern so everything will fit.  No easy feat! I thought I had better do a test run with my new measurements.

I ended up with this dud.....think I miss read the instructions somewhere so gave it another go...
 this one worked out ever so well and when pieced with a block A, I found that the junctions match up better than before
So for now and until the rest of the fabric arrives, I am just doing what I set out to do in my February Goals, to cut out the fabric for piecing.
I thought the fabric scraps made an interesting photo.
Goal One complete!
