for my

I briefly considered putting these away for another day

These are the fabrics I chose to use for a quiltalong I wanted to do
that has been happening along without me.

There are some beautiful quilts in progress in the links!

I have been feeling a bit down lately about letting my quilty plans go sideaways.
