Too Much??

Am I the only one afraid of running out of projects at retreat? 
Even though I have many projects packed (my Spools, Lozenges, a very old jelly roll project, my Devil's Claw blocks, and two more new jelly roll projects) I thought I should get a couple more things ready to take along....just in case.... 
Naturally Nautical has been on my bucket list for a while.
 It's always a good idea to make a test block so you are sure to pack the tools you will need for your project. I also cut the borders and binding (and labeled them!) so I don't use the fabrics for something else--it happens!

Fractured has been on the list for ages too.
 My version won't be as cool as the original since I don't have as many fun fabrics in my stash.
 It's all about using up the stash!!

I made test blocks of Block A and Block B.
I was a bit confused about the cutting instructions at first, but I think I have it figured out now. This will be a fun one to sew--I may have to leave it at the top of the pile--lol! 

Once I have my packing finished (I'm leaving in the morning) I will be able to relax and start assembling my Stars in the Garden--all the components are done--yipee!!
