Getting Off Track

Okay, so I got a little off track yesterday.

You know how, when you are working on one project and another pops in your head..... and you have to start playing around with that idea, before you are finished with the first one.
Well, I do it ALL THE TIME!

Anyhow, I was working with all my Half-Square triangles, playing with different combinations, when I decided to move a dresser that was in my closet upstairs down into my sewing room downstairs. That's a mess in itself. While in the midst of doing that, I looked in the sewing room closet for a vinyl zipper bag for another project and there I found a Spanish Tile quilt started and never finished. Most of the blocks were already made, just waiting for me. They were calling my name. And I answered. I made it smaller than the pattern calls for, but if it looks OK after Amie quilts it, I will use it for a new sample at quilt shows. It kind of has a Christmas look to it.

Then I got back to my Half-Square triangles. This time around, I am turning four blocks into one block.
Still have a lot to do!

I've never seen a Spanish Tile block before - looks interesting... the red/pink paisley caught my eye - it does look a little like Christmas!

The Spanish Tile quilt does look Christmasy...very pretty. I also like how your new half square triangle blocks are coming out, can't wait to see it done.
