Fresh Block From Simply Retro Book by Camille Roskelley: A WIP Wednesday Edition

Hi there!  Well, I am all over the place.  I seriously need to get some focus.  I have seen a couple of people now have nice spreadsheets of projects and their status.  I am going to need to get working on that.  

On to the main reason for this post, last year I participated in a quilt along for Camille Roskelley's book, Simply Retro which was hosted by Jana Machado.  I wasn't able to make the first couple of projects but jumped in with the Baby Love large quilt, and made all of the projects from there except the last one because the quilt along took a bit of a hiatus.  Well, it started up again at the beginning of the year and I had already planned out the Fresh project last year, so I thought I would at least make a block so that I could be considered for the drawing.  The project calls for layer cake squares, but I am using a La Belle Fleur by French General dessert roll which are 5" by WOF strips.  I am adding the Essex Linen in the HST around the stars, so I should have plenty to finish the 96" x 96" quilt. 
This week is also kids clothing week, so I picked up on a couple of my unfinished projects for the Goob, and maybe start one new one!  Aneela Hoey's new line Hello Petal just came out and she is having a contest where you can enter any project using her new fabric.  So, I HAD to start a new dress using her gorgeous new fabric line.  SO, you should make something and enter as well!

I better get back to sewing so I can get all of this finished!  Thanks so stopping by and come back soon to see if I actually get it done....
