I have to admit I was surprised that our Positivity blocks were suppose to be a top really soon. I thought it was Saturday -- silly me it isn't until Sunday. But I was working like a pro and finished the last blocks over the last few days and actually got the top together today.

Positivity Top Done!
Although I repeated background fabrics every single green is different. Yes 48 different greens and I could have done quite a few more. I hit up the greens from my fat quarters, 2.5" strips, some from my scrap baskets and may be one or two from my yardage stash. Sadly, I really didn't make a big dent in the greens. Sigh. However the background fabrics wiped out quite a few left over fabrics. I had no problem with the beiges and whites. But I really didn't have a lot of variety in the grey. So, yep I repeated a lot of the grey.
If you like this block (and it is very easy to do) click on the Positivity link on the right side bar. Then look for the block instructions. Preeti has done a wonderful job of providing all sorts of different layouts and blocks. I was happy to work in my greens and hope they are restful to the new owner.
I'm now in the midst of trying to find a backing fabric. So far I haven't found a wide back that really strikes my fancy. I may start looking at 45" fabric. I've found a couple but need to make up my mind.
That's it for today. (Yes, I am much earlier than my usual Friday afternoon or evening posting...) I'm linking up to Midweek Makers, Needle and Thread Thursday, Finished or Not Friday, and Beauty Pageants. I'll finish linking up
Friday Saturday morning.
I'll be back tomorrow to link up the rest of the blogs. Come back Saturday for my blog for Sarah's 12 Days of Christmas in July. I'm sharing a yummy cookie recipe and a look at some ornaments I've made over the past Christmases. Check the beginning post and daily posts since by going to Confessions of a Fabric Addict. You will also see the people (like me) participating in the Blog Hop. Hope to see you here on Saturday too!
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
