Two finishes in January has allowed me to begin new and old projects.
On the center of the design wall is a new project. The strips will be the beginning of a bright quilt based on Judy’s Peaches & Dreams pattern. I am making some changes in the pattern to accommodate the 2.5” strips I have in my stash.
To the left of the strips is the UFO I will be completing.
The center square is the prototype block that will be the alternate block between the Christmas Swap blocks I have had sitting around for about a year. I had another plan for the blocks but I just couldn’t get excited about it. Then this week I was putting away the blue fabric that had been used as a backing for Flight School and I had this idea. I think this is going to go well and when the blocks are all together I will begin looking for border fabric.
That’s one new project and two UFOs. In addition I will be working on my Eleanor Burns Sampler Quilt (sashing blocks and appliqué) and 2 other new quilts that I have only begun to think about. Funny thing, in January I was having difficulty getting excited about any new projects but one completion and I seem to be off and running.
And one other reason I have been recently inspired is that I won a giveaway at Morning Glory Designs.
Reese send me these three fat quarters and aren’t they lovely? I am keeping them out on a table for now to see if they want to play with anything I already have.
Be sure to drop by Judy’s blog to see what others are working on. Just make sure you have some time as there will be a lot of eye candy to look at.
