Planning a busy year

014

Now that Christmas projects are out of the way, I can get back to work on the Florabunda applique that I started last year.  I have six blocks finished and six to go. 

010

Yesterday I started a seventh one.  This BOM by Erin has been so fun.  She is doing another one for this year featuring birds.  I know it will be beautiful just like all her designs.

I made a goal to finish current projects and no new ones for a while but I broke that goal just two weeks into the new year by signing up for the 2011 Nine Patch Challenge at Anne Marie’s Quilt. The aim is to have a nine patch quilt finished by September 1st using fabrics from our own stash.  It was just too tempting.  This afternoon I picked out my fabrics.  I’ve been wanting to make a yellow and blue quilt…this one will have a little green with it too.

005  This might be an omen that it’s going to be a good year.  I was a lucky winner of this pretty quilting calendar over at Ann’s blog.  She has one of her awesome patterns inside for the month of October.  I’ve made some of her patterns before and they are really nice. 

There are lots of other projects to finish in 2011.  I have a list and plan to get busy.

Yeah! I'm glad to see your Florabunda blocks out again. Gorgeous!

I am trying so hard not to start a new long term project, but to finish up somethings I already have going. It's probably a lost battle though...lol

In stitches,

I love the combo of blue and yellow. I have made 4 quilts in those colors.

Do you have any idea the name of the blue and yellow prints you are using here? They are just gorgeous and I think I had some very similar but don't know the name of the fabrics. Your blog is one of my "favorite" list. Thanks!
