Recently, Barbara Brackman published an article on her MATERIAL CULTURE blog entitled LANCASTER COUNTY'S UNUSUAL SAMPLERS.  It caught my eye because I've always been partial to bright calico fabrics.  Ahem: seems that I have quite a collection of them in my stash :)  Here are just some of the reds, yellows, greens and pinks.  There are more where these came from, and also cheddars, blues, purples ... 

Anyway, since I don't currently have any "need to get done by a certain deadline" projects in my workroom, I've decided to putter with some pieced calico blocks and see where I end up.  Just doing my own thing, inspired by some of the antique quilts that share this style and color combo.
