January is Nearly Gone!
Since this year is about 'enjoy' and I have limited my projects (hard with all the great stuff going on) - the near end of the first month has come faster than I thought. The few things I did have on my 'month' list have been finished, but that gives me more time to play. I gifted out a number of things this month, but there is still a huge supply here.
I was going to just work RSC17 with the piggy blocks, but since my 2" barrel is running into a second barrel - well, I'm playing. Whether I use these blocks or I pass them on - they are using up those scraps rather than having them sit (and multiply).
I was going to put the bear section and the paw section together next month, but since I had extra time the Black Bear is walking along a little faster. A couple of borders go on before I have to think about that border that had the little paw blocks. I'm not doing those again, but haven't been inspired by something else yet.
Boring picture, but I did have another finish and this one had NO borders! Since this is a test pattern I cannot show the full quilt. I seem to be in the 'organic line' quilting phase, but it is quick and easy and gives movement.
Speaking of borders (again), I sorted thru my UFO-flimsy tub and the goal is to get that puppy emptied this year. It seems that most of my projects in there are sitting because they need borders. I at least attached notes, some sketches, some math and possible fabrics with each quilt - so it is just a matter of putting on the Big Girl Panties and getting them done.
This one will be ready to hand off to my long armer on Tuesday - we have missed her two weeks in a row because of snow/ice storms. There is a big pile of quilts here (students, mom, and me) for her that will keep her busy for a while.
Linking up with Soscrappy, Oh Scrap, and Whoop, Whoop Friday . No Feline Friday post as my furkids have been in hiding mode as several large trucks have been up here. They hate large trucks, hate large trucks that are noisy, hate large, noisy trucks that go 'beep,beep,beep' when they back up.
