Snap Pop breaks through the bleak Winter greys

So the holidays have passed and what a time to go through illnesses
and down time.  No crafting, barely any sewing or quilting to speak of
and plenty of bare trees, foggy days & nights with rain and ice...

Sometimes we don't always breeze through the seasons or holidays
the way we would like and it's nice when something comes along
to "snap" us out of the dolldrums... Snap Pop, just the ticket ;)

While browsing Etsy the other day I found a listing for a Moda layer cake -
never worked with one but of course always wanted to. 
Evidently from what I've learned, this design set is not going to be available
until March but some wonderful fabric and quilt show sellers got their hands on some -

 (I got MY picky paws on a stack from QuiltfabricsbyConnie)
And right now, she still has some charm packs, jelly rolls and maybe there's still a layer cake as well.
Last time I checked, she still had a fat quarter bundle of 37
for $95.00 so you DON'T have to wait for March ;)

I knew right away what I was going to do with it because I've had Samelia's Mum's blog page in my favorites for quite a while now and she has a pattern on there for a twin size quilt that is great for beginners.  I'm thinking it would be fun even for those of us who have completed more than a few quilts already and yesterday I cut my strips of calico in solid white and bordered the solids in the Snap Pop pile.

I'm ready to start piecing it all together but for a sinus issue. 
The heat has dried the place out and I need to feel a bit better to really get into this quilt.

So head on over to Connie and get you some of this fabulous fabric!
I'll post more pictures as the quilt progresses.
