I love new beginnings; therefore, I love January. I've been catching up and getting organized. First I caught up on my Designer Mystery Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop. Block 8 will arrive soon, so I was just in time!
It will be fun to have two quilts rather than one when May arrives!
I also have some mail I need to catch up on...on the left is some fabric I received from Cindy--three charm packs of Aviary by Moda, a fun Christmas fat quarter, and a delightful card! Thanks so much Cindy! I also received a fun package from Nanette with wonderful vintage fabrics and ring pincushion and star ornament (I'd been oohing and aahing over the rings and ornaments on her blog last month)--thank you Nanette!
Now...what to do for Charming Girls' Quilt Club this month...
Goal #1 is to finish my "a la mode quilt" using Simple Abundance--pattern by Camille and fabric by Bonnie and Camille. I love these stars with the pinwheel centers!
Goal #2 is to finish this quilt with Make Life by Sweetwater...
Goals #3 and #4 are to piece quilt tops using these fabrics...Meadowsweet by Sandi Henderson and Hope Valley by Denise Schmidt.
Goals #5, #6, and #7 are to bind these three quilts! I got the machine work finished the other day but have a lot of hand stitching to do--the middle quilt is a king-sized quilt (the first quilt I made using Fig Tree fabrics), and the bottom one is a double sized. Can you believe the bottom quilt has been finished for over 5 years without being bound...it's my oldest work in progress and will soon be finished! And finally...goal #8 is to finish my Tisket a Tasket quilt top---one block left!
I have a few other things I want to get to this month...including making a few things for a giveaway...my 200th post is coming up very, very soon...be on the lookout! Have a great day!
