Productively Non-Productive

After traveling extensively for the last several weeks and having to prepare for Easter company tomorrow, I have much to do.  It's difficult to decide what to do first.

I've decided to do none of it and to work on Pat Sloan's Never Enough Chocolate sew along instead.


After I finish each proejct, I cut my scraps into a few useable sizes and have filled a filing box full of 5-inch squares.  I pulled two different black musical prints as my neutral fabric.  I chose scrappy brights for my "red/yellow" blocks and a steady purple for my "chocolate/yellow" blocks.  The corners are supposed to be pieced, but I couldn't find anything in my stash that worked and pulled a chunky textured black and white woven fabric from the "to be cut into squares" pile.

I know that this quilt is named Never Enough Chocolate.  I love chocolate and I believe that statement in the core of my being, but I have to rename this quilt.  What do you think of "Jellybeans?"

I think the Jellybeans name is very fitting -- color-wise and as a reminder of when you began working on the project. I'd love to see the chunky fabric you mentioned. I still haven't pulled any fabrics for mine but it's just a matter of time . . .

I think Jelly Beans is the perfect name with all the rich colors you have used.
