Most of my effort this week has been focused on getting the Magnolia Mystery to the finished flimsy stage, which didn't happen till yesterday afternoon. So I missed the deadline to submit a photo for the parade over at Meadow Mist Designs. That's OK. It helped to have deadline, it made the quilt a priority. There's still a good chance it will be a finished flimsy ready to go out for quilting by the end of the month.
There wasn't much stitching going on with my other projects, though I did finish off the first of three purple Squared Away blocks for February.

This was a fun and easy block to make. The darker print has all sorts of purples in it. It's hard to tell from this photo, but the background fabric is a very pale lavender. That mottled purple is pretty old. It dates back to my second quilt class back in 2001. The background fabric is a bit newer, it is a left over from a quilt back for one of the SITs middle school teachers. I've got a start on the final two purple blocks, but no pictures of those two yet.
Now to grab a bit of breakfast before heading off to the gym. Linking up with Soscrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap on Sunday.
