Pretty fabric and a new project.

I found this fabric in Spotlight and fell in love.
I am kicking myself now for not buying more of it.

I know, I know, there is always more pretty fabric coming.

I just have such a hard time cutting into the really beautiful stuff.
It's really quite silly because it is just fabric.
There will always be fabric.
I will always buy fabric.

And so, this very pretty fabric is to become the central
focus of a quilt for a lady that I work with.

This is the basic block.
Text fabric in the centre.
One of either blue/pink/green to surround it.
Orange corners.
All the blocks will then be surrounded by an orange border 
with more of the pretty text print as a wide final border.

So I have started it - in fact it is almost all cut out but,
will it be finished on time?
School finishes on the 20th of December.
