Remember that new tool I was so excited about? I washed the fabric.

I cut it up.

I sewed it together and cut it up again.

I laid it out (on the floor, because the design wall is occupied by something else that I should also finish).

I went to fold a load of laundry.

And then I found this.

I'd had these fabrics for a while, thought I knew them, and didn't look at them too carefully before tossing them in the washer. I had been thinking while cutting them up that it was odd there was no orange fat quarter, seeing as there were two greens and two blues. I must have missed this one when taking the fabrics out of the washing machine.

So, I think I could:

1) Rip up a whole bunch of blocks and add the orange in.
2) Somehow put the orange in the border instead.
3) Leave the orange out and use it in some other project.
4) Stuff it in a box and decide "later."

I feel like the orange really wants to be in there, so I'm leaning towards #1... but that's a lot of work, so I'm also leaning towards #4. Sigh. I always hear about "Mommy Brain," but is there such a thing as "Quilter Brain," too?
