New Projects for 2013??
How many of you are planning new projects for the New Year? I found 2 BOM's online from last year (Shabby Cabins and Lecien Vintage Tiles) that I saved and printed to do this year for variety each month. I think I'll have 3 applique projects and two or 3 pieced ones: One for my DSIL- he pouted at Christmas when he didn't get one ;) and an Americana (Canadiana). I might even tackle Jinny Beyer's basket quilt BOM from her 2012 newsletters.
I like variety and am not interested in quick and easy, but every so often I do tend to get focused on one to the exclusion of everything else.
I bought some patterns from Quiltworx, so I will start with this one http://www.quiltworx.com/patterns/sea-urchins/ and I am still working on my Affairs of the Heart needle turn applique quilt, I have now done 22 blocks out of the 36 in the quilt. If I can get both of these finished before the end of this year I will be really happy. :) I might just have to throw in a quick and easy project somewhere just for fun.
I have several requests to make as soon as I finish the binding on one quilt from last year and finish the top on another that I'm loving!
DGD (age 7) wants a butterfly and armadillo quilt for her bed (This should be interesting!)
2 different 'star' quilts - one in blue and yellow and the other in cream and white
a horny toad quilt (another interesting exercise lol)
A carpentars star
i have a celtic design pattern but for the life of me can't remember the name at the moment
and my take on a sampler quilt (just started this one a week ago)
I'm thinking this will get me thru late summer...
Just finished by DGD birthday T-shirt quilt - next project is a dragonfly applique quilt for my cousin - my Mom sent me a quilt my Gram made in the 40's that needs patched - my aunt sent me a another quilt top only my Gram made in the 30s that she found in a cedar chest and asked me to quilt it. Already been looking at patterns for next Christmas...but haven't settled on anything yet. Next tho is a crocheted blanket for my other DGD's birthday in February. Figure that's enough to keep me out of trouble for the next little while.:)
That is pretty! I am working on block 8 of Affairs of the Heart - needle turn too! :)

I am continuing work on 4 different paper pieced scrap quilts. I do a couple of each block everyday, get bored doing same one over and over. Then I just started a wedding quilt for youngest son getting married in April. After that, I don't know.
Lots of ideas but right now I'm focused on finishing UFOs. Wish me luck!
I like the idea of a paper pieced quilt I just haven't decided which one to do, Judy Niemeyer's patterns are all so beautiful.

Right now I have 7 projects hanging over the banister that need attention. One needs binding. One is pinned and ready to be quilted, the rest are tops. That'll keep me in stitches for a while.
