Still arranging blocks, interesting fabric, and Southland

I sewed together my remaining blocks and rearranged them again. I changed out one of the orange blocks from a bright orange to a softer grayer orange - the second block from the left in the third row from the bottom. My next struggle is the that black block with the yellow circles. I moved it into several positions and it is just not working for me. So far I have not repeated a fabric, but since I really don't want to buy anymore fabric I may use one of the other black background prints and replace that block.

I won some fabric. 2 1/2 yards of this crazy unicorn fabric is now part of my stash. I know a little girl that loves unicorns so I plan on contacting her mom to find out if I could make her something out of this fabric.

I am a big fan of the cop show "Southland". The show only ran 5 seasons and there were only 6 shows in a season which is not many compared to a lot of series. I know I missed some of the shows just because I could never figure out when the new season was starting. It was not aired on the network television, but one of the cable channels. I found the entire series on DVD at the library and now I am obsessed with watching it. It is a bit gruesome at times, gritty, and I have the uncensored version so there is a fair amount of bad language. I will be squeezing in a bit of watching more episodes this weekend between sewing.

I plan on taking vacation tomorrow and my goal is to have the Moda Halloween quilt sewn together and pin basted by Monday.

I think you could probably leave it in and be OK, but if you are like me, you will need to change it out. If you leave it in, leave it on the left side of the black row. It has a greater potential to blend into the row above, maybe.

I have not watched Southland, but have seen where it is on the TV listings. I might have to check out my library! I could use a few more seedy words in my vocabulary!

I like your Halloween quilt. The variety in the oranges is better now. The block with the yellow in it just doesn't have the same personality as the rest of the blocks.
