It's a flimsy!

I started making these six inch blocks back in 2013 from 2.5 inch scraps. I made them off and on over the years as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project whenever I remembered. Looks like I usually remembered when the color of the month was green.
I have so many sets of blocks that could be assembled into a top so sometimes it's difficult to decide which set to assemble. I'll tell you a little story about why I recently chose to assemble these particular blocks.
A month ago at my Wellness Check I decided to take a less invasive form of a screening test since the doctor has been bugging me for a couple of years to get screened and I have been putting it off. I thought the test would come back negative and that would be the end of that. But it came back positive. Oh crap! Bum deal, if you get my drift. I had to go ahead and schedule the more invasive form of that screening test. Worry, worry. But...there was a chance I could be one of the 12% false positives. Worry, worry, wait, wait. I decided to do some mindless sewing while waiting for the follow up appointment for diagnostic testing. I saw the Plus Sign blocks. I have sometimes referred to the quilt I would make from them as The Power of Positive Thinking. (In fact that is how it is listed on my UFO page. ) As I almost mindlessly sewed the blocks together my mantra was "I am a false positive. I am one of the 12%." Well, I'm glad to say that is true. It turned out all right in the end and I'm glad that is all behind me, if you get my drift.
