Star Soup Quilt

 *If you want to win my favorite Christmas CD, go here.  You can skip the world's longest post and just leave a comment about your favorite Christmas song.*

I've finally figured out what to do with those fussy cut economy test blocks.   

I think I'm going to love it!  The center of these blocks were all cut from a print of Riley Blake's Alphabet Soup.  We have a little board book named Star Soup and it seemed like a good fit.  Flying geese are some of my favorite blocks to make, so this quilt will be a reward, once I finish doing that thing I have to do.  Which is quilting The Starburst of Indie quilt.  Meh.

WIP List:
I've decided to only list projects I am actively working on, or need to start actively working on.

Starburst of Indie: Quilt, Bind, Post
Star Soup: Finish cutting background fabric, start cutting pattern fabric, make one more economy block.
Other economy blocks- make about a gazillion more!
Blog Redesign- find a palette, start trading 'favors' with Matt for help.
Let's Talk About Hex- Cut more hexies, layout and pick centers.
Lotta Confetti- Just get to it!
