Back in January, when the Challenge started, I picked 5 projects to work on throughout the year. Three are completely finished and in use, one is in flimsy state and the fifth one, Stars and Diamonds, has been traded out for something I want to work on much more. I just started to work on New #5 yesterday because I have been waffling for the past month on whether or not to stick with the Original #5 pick. I have fallen out of love with Original #5. I still like it and will probably make it somewhere down the road. My New #5 pick is a pattern by LizzieBcrea8tive that is in an issue of Quilt-it...Today magazine. It is called "Happy Scrappy Hexies" and I have been crazy about this pattern since last summer. Here are the fabrics I have picked. Twelve different fat quarters of Amy Butler "Soul Blossoms" and twelve different Kona colours for backgrounds. This pattern uses raw edge applique and should work up quickly. It will be my picnic quilt.

Hope you had a quilty day!
