The Mischief Quilt

Or as I am calling it, Squirrel!
She's been sharing these awesome epp blocks.

I fell in love and had to check them out.
Variation #3 is my favorite.
I ordered the kit.
It came a few days later.

I watched the videos and
started pulling batik strips that I have accumulated from strip swaps.
The aqua is for my center octagons and the pale green is for the neutral kite shapes.

Honestly I was only going to make one block to see if I liked it.
Originally I cut enough pieces for 7.
I sewed up one block and immediately started on number 2.

I know I'm weak.
I went back in and kitted up 18 more blocks.
And have the papers kitted up for the next 25.

I can rationalize all of this.
Of course I can. 😃
My On The Road Project is getting pretty good sized.
I need a small project to take to my Binding Friends group on Wednesdays
or to the beach.
This will be perfect.

I hope I don't finish it before the 15th when we meet again.

Oh course you NEED to start a new road project/quilt!
And it's the perfect one... I love it too!
So fun how 1 block turned into 7, which turned into 18, and now there are 25 more waiting!!
