I was paralyzed with indecision most of this month, so put off my Piece Bee block til this past Sunday. Mid-century modern things are super fun to look at, but I got overwhelmed with all the choices. >_< In the end, I decided to make chairs with curves; hopefully it's okay that I appliqued the curvy bits on!

These are so plain that I totally went for the cheerleader effect and tried to make them more appealing in a group. At first, I thought I would put them together in one block, but then I waffled since Charlotte linked to a really cool quilt that had single chairs in frames, and now I’m leaving it up to Deborah.

I also made the saddest little signature block. I had stayed up so late to make the chairs that I knew I wouldn’t be able to sew the next night, and I wanted to get this done so that I would be able to get everything finished on time.

I’m very not pleased with myself! Poor Deborah gets the results of my badbadbad procrastinatey month, but next month I’ll be better. I’m going to start my scary February fish block at the beginning of the month! Argh!
