my 2012 quilt adventures-
It seems like forever since I have posted to this blog. I have sew many projects floating around I decided it would be easier to set up several sewing machines with projects in laundry baskets near those machines with the set thread color handy. This way all I needed to decide was which machine I wanted to sit at that day.
Right!!! this was a good idea in theory but there is still only one of me and so many hours in a day. But I am still planning the multiple sewing machine

Wow 14 blocks made and 386 more to go. i am setting a goal of making 10 blocks per week for this quilt to at least get the quilt top done this year. this quilt pattern is a 100 x 100 sized quilt so that is 10,000 1.5" fabric squares needed. wow! i am not overwhelmed by any of this yet. i am just taking it one fabric square at a time.

This year I felt a desire to document my quilt journey. I am embarking on two postage stamp quilt adventures and perhaps I felt that if I do so (document), I would be sure to complete them in some form.
