These flowers have power!

Every once in a long while I am struck by a wave of motivation that won't go away.  I wish I felt this way everyday, but I don't so when the moment comes I just have to go.  Right now I'm inspired to make a quilt for someone I don't really know but who I know needs some warmth right now.  I dug through my ample fabric stash and found a bunch of fabric I purchased at a quilting expo before Tom Thumb was born.  Red couldn't have been more than a year old when I bought it.  Sometimes fabric just speaks to you and when it speaks you must buy even if you don't have a project for it at the time.  This was the case with this fabric.  One of my purchases was this panel:
At some point I had seen a design using this fabric where they cut up the panel to make new individual blocks so I decided to give it a shot from memory and came up with this:
I'm hoping to whip this quilt out quickly.  I have a two week goal in my head, meaning two weeks from today, which is a feat I've never accomplished before.  Can I do it?  Do these flowers have power?  OH YES!

I'll post some photos as I go along. I think I might actually be able to get the top done today. I figured out what design I want to do last night and I have just the right amount of fabric. I think it's fate! :-)
