Since I won the December Challenge with the Charming Girls Quilt Club (and finished two quilts to boot), I am really excited to forge ahead with January's.
First is a quilt for Dear Hubby. I had started collecting fabrics over 10 years ago. They were a little harder to find and I had no idea at the time what pattern I was going to make with them. I finally found a pattern (Toad in the Puddle by Mary Ellen Hopkins, I think) and cut it all out 4 years ago!
I finished one block to see how it would go together. What was I thinking way back then.!?? They are all flannels. They stretch. The flying geese are made with cut triangles instead of my beloved 4 x Flying Geese ruler. I don't think a single point was saved. They were all chopped off. I'm just going to muster through this and make it with some of my sloppiest piecing ever........but finished is better than perfect. For January, I will be happy to finish the top.
Project #2 is to complete the January row for my BOM, Thoughts of Christmas.
Project #3 is to re-design and complete the top of a Cheri Payne project to hang in my foyer. Cheri's project is 8" x 20". I need it to be wider so I will add a row to the side and maybe another row to the bottom. We'll see how it turns out.
I also have a quilt to cut out by January 22nd for a class on the 23rd but I won't count that as a project. That has to be done regardless. One of my BFFs is teaching the class. How embarrassing for her if I showed up for class and wasn't prepared!
