A surprise and Dead Simple

I received a little present from Erin over at Bittle Bear during her give away.  Whoo hoo, Love this fabric, and Thank you, Erin.  These are so pretty in person.  
Presents from Erin at Bittle Bear

I'm playing in this QAL , I have a palette, which I posted HERE, I moved photos around on my computer, now I can't find the picture of my palette, wherever I moved it, so just go look at the older post.  Or the solids are below.

Solids for Dead Simple QAL

I pulled some fabrics, I feel I have too many mediums.  Not so amazingly, my pulls are full of Kaffe Fassett and a little Joel Dewberry.  

The Medium Grey, Ash and Espresso.  

Curry, Amber, and another yellow that I wanted to use.  This end of the color palette is so ME!  I didn't have much of the lightest yellow, but the orange and amber color, covered, which is why I feel there are too many mediums.

I put together some of the Bow Tie blocks for the Bow Tie Swap.  Luckily, I checked the directions after only making one, they all would have been wrong!  I cut the small pieces 2.5" instead of 2", I was mixing sizes for the postage stamp swap.  Making them all wrong would not have surprised me in the least, because I was working on these  AHEAD of time, so it would just be karma to have them all be wrong since I'm working ahead of schedule.

I'm starting a quilt using a young man's shirts.  This has part of a flannel.  Never an easy task to use clothing in a quilt, pulling everything together.  I'll have more in the days to come, and a story to go along.
