I love the approach of the new year. After the chaos that can be Christmas you have a week of calm to reflect on the past year and to look forward and make plans for the new one. With that in mind I have decided to start 2011 off fresh as far as quilting projects go. I have decided to not plan too far in advance and just work on the projects that I have and try to finish them before starting something new. We'll see how long that lasts:)
While I am ready to leave the holidays behind me, I do have one lingering project I would like to finish this week so that I can say I made something for Christmas! I started working on a small table runner based on the one I saw here earlier this month. I am just using one charm pack of "12 Days of Christmas" by Kate Spain for the front and will use a print from the line for the back. Mine won't be as big as the one Jennifer made, but I have a small dining room table, so it will be perfect for us!
Here are a couple of the blocks in progress:
My most exciting work in progress:
Happy Hour pattern. It has been so easy to put together! The most time consuming part has been cutting out the blocks, but that could be because I am fussy cutting out the characters. I can't wait to finish this one!
Here are a couple close ups of my favorite blocks:
I am going to take advantage of the rest of naptime to try to finish a few more blocks! Hope everyone else had productive weeks!
