Dessert Sampler - Block 1

Don't you just love how a good little quilting session can brighten your day!!  It has been "a week", so yesterday afternoon, I decided I needed a little something to cheer myself up.  So I pushed aside all of the "deadline" projects, and ignored the dirty dishes and laundry, and just sewed for fun!!  And since I just choose Moda's new Dessert Sampler for my new Long Term, No Deadline, All Fun Project, it was the perfect thing to work on!!!   And I finished Block 1 ;)   And boy oh boy, does it bring a smile to my face!!!!

And as soon as I was done stitching it together, I immediately wanted to start working on another block!!!  But I decided, I wanted to do a little organizing first.  I don't want to let myself sit and cut out all the blocks, as that will take out the "one block at a time" feel that I am going for with this project.  But I did go through my Layer Cakes and slice them all in half and then sort them in 6 color ways so I can follow the 6 color ways layout in the Dessert Sampler pattern.

And I also saw that in the beginning of the Dessert Sampler pattern there is a list of strips to cut for the Background Fabric to make that go faster as well ;)   So I cut all of those strips.  And now with my Cupcake 1 and 2 Mix arriving, I am super set for Dessert Sampler block goodness!!!

In Fact, I even had a little time to cut out Block 2!!!  It's all set to sew :)   And I am super excite to see all of these happy reds and corals come together.  So pretty!!!

 Don't you love how everything just seems to fall away when you are Happy Quilting!!  I know I sure do ;)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
