paintbox quilt-along

I've decided to join in at Oh Frasson! for the Paintbox Quilt-Along. As soon as it was announced, I ordered my Kona roll-ups from Fabric Depot. Talk about yummy, I didn't want to unroll them! I bought the bright palette, classic palette, and the dark palette.

My first eight blocks.

I discovered I have very few monochromatic prints in my stash, so I'm hoping maybe the swaps thread over in the flickr pool will get going.  I've pulled quite a few more together, but I'm far short of the necessary 40 prints.

And, despite my careful "mise en place" technique...

this is what can happen when you are listening to Phoenix too loudly and not paying attention.
