For the last few days I’ve been working on a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I feel like a ping pong ball bouncing from one thing to the next! Along with all the wonderful time spent with family and friends, putting all the Christmas decorations away and hitting the gym a few times since Christmas to work off all those treats, I’ve also worked on various quilt projects.

Grandmother’s Choice – Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice blog continues to be a very favorite. Each Saturday morning the first thing I do is check her blog to see what the next block will be and to read a bit more about the history of women’s rights. And I love the bright, springy, happy fabric I’m using: Good Fortune by Kate Spain.Here is this week’s block called Cheyenne:
And last but not least – Carol Doak’s Mystery Block of the Month. Carol has already given us the January block called Arrow Star:
The Carol Doak Mystery Block of the Month is available for free through her Yahoo Group.
Resolutions! I have two New Year’s resolutions related to quilting. One is to practice free motion quilting weekly. I’ve taken the class, have practice material and I have all the right tools but I never seem to find the time to practice. The second resolution is to only buy new fabric if it has a specific project. No more buying because I think it is simply beautiful. If it is that pretty, I’d better have a well thought out plan to use it! I’d like to make really good use of all the gorgeous stash I have in boxes, bins and bags throughout my studio!
So do you have any quilting New Year’s resolutions? If so, please share!
And Happy New Year, y’all!
