New Quilt I've started

I've started a new quilt with some fabric that I thought I was going to get rid of. The floral I've had for a long time and love it, but the purple (with black) I always disliked and was about to give it away. Then the other day I pulled them out and found they went quite well together and wanted to try this pattern so it worked out nicely. You just never know! lol

Found My Quilt

I often wonder how in the world I manage to do it, but I lost a quilt I had started.? I've been madly searching for it ever since. At Christmas when I was trying to "Make room" I had put it into a basket and I thought, put it in my sewing room. Unfortunately that's not where I put it. So the other day, I had the hooks (they were plastic) that held the shelves up in my cabinet in the garage snap. Well, two shelves fell and here was this basket inside a plastic bag to protect it. When I opened it up, lo and behold there was my quilt. I'm known for putting things in strange places usally I write it down somewhere so I'll know where I put things and although this wasn't a strange place, the garage is not a place I normally would put my fabric. So needless to say I did the happy dance, even if I do have to redrill the holes in the cabinet so the metal shelf holder thingy's will hold the shelves so they don't fall again. Nothing was breakable that fell, fortunately:)
So yesterday I was able to work on that quilt and another one I've started.
I decided I really need to get busy and stay busy this month, as it's the anniversy of the loss of my brother last year. I've dreaded Feb. coming but I know if I keep the brain and hands going I'll get through it ok. He's in a good place and I need to find a good place for my head and heart to be at this time.
