Road Trip!

One of the great things about growing up in Saskatchewan is that we learn from an early age that to go anywhere or do anything requires getting in your car and making a long trip.  The mail could be an hour away (seriously....).
To this day, I love a good road trip, and any chance I have to hit the open highway, I take it because it gives me such a sense of freedom.
Twice in the past week I have had the opportunity to travel back to central Alberta.  I LOVE the city and area of  Red Deer, and will always feel that this area is my second home : )
So, while there I had to stop at a few of the rural area quilt shops and that of course meant a stop at The Peaceful Patch Quilt Shop in Blackfalds, Alberta.  
While in there I found this bundle of orphan fabric looking for a good home:
So, I paid the "adoption" fee and brought it home with me.  Now, I probably don't need more fabric, so I figured I better to put it to good use sooner rather than later.
Here is what I have so far:
A Disappearing Four Patch block.  I have cut my squares at 5" to maximize my use of each fat quarter.
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
