My word is a simple one - do!

I have to include the exclamation point to imply "do it now."  Whenever I (try to)start a project,  I waste time changing my mind about the quilt pattern, my fabric choices, etc.  Sometimes I never begin the project because of my indecision.  I even started looking in the dictionary for a different word!  

Instead, my word motivated me to go to may stash and pull out scraps of hot pink (my favorite) along with black + white fabric squares I had previously made.  I threw them on some batting and started rearranging and trimming until I liked the design.  I treated the made fabric like applique pieces and used spray adhesive to keep everything in place ~ I felt like a little kid again gluing colored construction paper onto poster board!  I sewed all the pieces down with decorative stitches and bound it with white twill tape. 

I wasn't true to the challenge directions (my letters are not the made fabric) but it's done and already inspiring me!  Thank you Victoria for such a fun challenge!
