Due to my unforseen accident and set-back, I missed posting/lining up of the finale of the ABC QAL with Blossom Heart Quilts. I chose to put just A- Y into a quilt top - this is huge!
The 'Z' will be a 16" pillow to go with the quilt.
I wanted to use up left over - so pieced a back.....
and kept piecing - I did say it was a huge quilt. Not sure now when this one will get quilted, but top, back, and batting are boxed and waiting for their turn.
When I saw this on Barbara's site I had to investigate and this is so going to work into my 'recovery' lounging time. Please check the button out and visit as I think it is better explained there - or pop in HERE.
I don't have a lot of 'old', but sure I can find enough to play with. And Something New - oh yes!! With NewFO and all those other buttons. And there is no reason why you can't combine some of these projects and buttons to work together. One project just might fit into 5 catagories - see where my mind is at.
Now I didn't want to step on Barbara's NewFO, so asked her first. I had so many reply about my outlook for NewFO into 2014 to include all those books, magazines, etc... that 'WE JUST HAVE TO HAVE' - that it would be fun to grab a book and make that project we so wanted to. And I can see this working so well with some of those other buttons - hint, hint...
So this is my old book that I just had to have - perfect with FQs which I love. And they are all small projects so should work up quickly - maybe. It is all about starting, isn't it?
And this is the project I chose. I do love tiny piecing. I pulled the FQs from that gorgeous bundle (an RJR designer)
And I have no idea when or where this came from, but it needs to be played with. I also want to join in with the Sunday Slow Stitching with Kathy, so I will combine these. My Sundays are booked.
OK, now that I see this photo - the top tote has an old project, so I have my 'something old'. And my other two projects for the month are in their respective totes with all supplies.
I will link up with Never Too Hot To Stitch for the Something Old/Something New.
The 'Let's Book It' button will be going on the sidebar - my first time making a button and grab it code (hope it works). I have ordered these quilt barn pins that hold quilt charms (our Quilt Barn Trail committee is selling these as a fund raiser for our Quilt Barn Trail - you can see the story HERE). Various quilt block charms are on their way, so once all is in place I will update with a true pin and charm for the month. A linky will be the last day of the month - see, you can combine your linky posts to match all those buttons/projects, too! You just need to share your book and progress on your project - and like NewFO and others, it's about the start, not the finish.
