I Cannot Resist

Carol Doak has started a new Mystery/BOM.  This is my block for May.  I tried so hard to resist, really I did...like 10 whole minutes!!  Life is too short to resist a mystery.  That's my story...

I love her designs and I love a mystery and I love a good BOM.  This is a 2 color quilt.  I think this will be my third 2 fabric quilt ever.

I had to go shopping--I know, darn!  because I don't have much yardage.  I found this seashell print first and loved it.  Then the pink kind of fell off the shelf. Really it did, I was pulling out another bolt and this one came with it.  I think it's perfect.  It took me all of 5 minutes to find my fabrics.  I did wander and pet fabrics and found 3 other pieces to finish a UFO.  Great day in the quilt shop.

Laughing loud at you, Judy. I like your Sister's Choice Block. I am starting another quilt tomorrow with my Guild buddies. Wish I was able to come to Retreat again so we could play...

You are SO funny Judy! I love your posts! Holy macaroni, you must have been in agony that whole 10 minutes while resisting. Lucky for us you caved or I'm sure all of our computers would have exploded with you. I can only choose fabric in 5 minutes if I see one I like and want it in my stash. If there's a plan to go along with the shopping, it's an hour and 5 minutes to decide. You're off to a great start!

Enjoy your two color quilt. Sometimes it is fun to "need" to go shopping. Glad you found what you needed.
