Bright January Days
That plus finally getting rid of my cold are enough to cheer anyone up!
This is a 12 1/2" block - the third corner of the 365 ultimate sampler quilt.
Lots of fun to make, though! I'm still two months behind, but cheerful. I do enjoy these fiddly piecing projects, even if I could work harder at being accurate.
As I'm intending this to be hung on a wall I need to make sure that I've got the dimensions of the space I have available ready so that I can avoid stitching it together and then having to unstitch it! I just hope that I've got room to include all the blocks.....
As a total contrast, I lead one of a set of mini workshops at my quilting meeting - on freezer paper applique! Not what I've been working on this year at all, but I found that I'd got a lovely sample quilt from 14 years ago! Sometimes it's easy to forget how long I've been quilting for. Playing with thread and fabric is a big part of how I choose to spend 'me time' and has become part of how I see myself. Thank goodness that I have this fabulous world to indulge in and fabulous quilters to share it with. Thank you, one and all!
