Your new project sounds great! I'm doing a BOM quilt hosted by this site. It's the first time for me doing this type of project. Already completed the first block and looking forward to the next. Aside from that, I will continue to work on a quilt for my Godson. Using a "sampler" of sorts for blocks, I've chosen patriotic themed fabric.
Happy New Year!!!
-Pat :) :) :)

But life goes on and because i am a newbie to quilting I take forever to make anything.I still enjoy the challenges that quilting brings and am looking forward to trying progressively more difficult projects.
I have just started making my 16 year old son a drunkards path quilt in black and white but dont hold your breath as it could be years before it is completed! :roll:
I think i will make the cats a blanket each as well this year as they are definitely achievable for me! My other thought is to make my dad a quilt but want to make him something really special so will have to put my thinking cap on...
I am sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Take that fabric that you were going to use for her quilt and make one for yourself. Everytime you snuggle under it will be hugs from her.
Am also so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Yes, make yourself a special quilt to wrap up in. Remember the good times, wish I had been quilting when my Mom passed, would love to have had something like that.

My list is way too long :-o

I'm completing my second round of IRR
Making Christmas blocks for the RR
Making Blue/White stars for exchange
Gathering fabrics for Valentine exchange
UFO list:
Finishing my BF's wedding quilt-only 2 years now! :shock:
Finishing quilt for my Dad, his 84th BD is the end of this month-will post pics soon. On row 2 of 3, and all cut out. Will quilt by hand, hopefully with finish on time---- :?:
Making a quilt for gniece, pattern and fabrics bought
Making a quilt for gnephew, pattern and fabrics bought
Have quilt cut out for son, who helps support me
Have fabrics for a quilt for ME, a turning twenty in french blue, yellow, and white-will complete this year
Have two quilts in the planning stage - but will finish above FIRST

Now that I have discovered my sewing machine, piecing is going MUCH faster :wink: but the hand quilting is not. I did find a wonderful set of quilting sharps with big golden eyes at Hancocks that is making the hand quilting go smoother.

I really love this board, it keeps me going on days I have no energy.
Thank you for being my strength.

Working on the campanion quilt for my son.

Two other "leftover" quilts (that's what DH called them since I have cuts of fabric leftover from straight borders that were big enough to provide substantial yardage).

Our quilt with tiny applique. This is a labor of love.

I will be working on my DGS Eagle scout quilt. I will have foot surgery on the 13th so I have been planning & getting the center block ready. I plan to applique an eagle on a block in the center of the quilt. The rest of it I will use the boy scout print fabrics. I don't have a 'pattern' picked yet because I want the eagle on it & I'm not sure how that will work out. I figure the applique will keep me busy when I can't get downstairs to my sewing room!

I will also cut out some blocks for another quilt I plan to give some friends we will be visiting in Texas in March as a hospitality gift. Also, I plan to cut out the blocks for a quilt (throw) for us. That should get me through the worst of the pain/cast period. I know I won't be able to stand and cut or quilt for a time.

my plan is to finish some ufo's and get the Hinterberg EZ Quilt frame put together so I can get them quilted by hand. My daughter's baby shower is at the end of this month so I need to get about 5 quilts done for that. Easy utility quilts she can wash repeatedly. Oh, and find my cell phone charger! it is somewhere in this house.
