I cannot believe we are already through the first full week of the new year! Did you make progress on your goals? I sure did. I got so so much done this week. Let me show you.
First, I got all of my blocks done for the 365 Block Challenge.
I also found a new quilt along (as if I needed another one). This is a new paper pieced block of the week called the Adventurously Epic Sampler. Here's the first block:
During all of this sewing, I managed to finish these blocks for the Stargyle Quilt, designed and hosted by Brenda at Just a Bit Frayed. It's been relegated to my leader/ender project.
I also got my Sew Sweet Bee block done. I decided to make two of each one and keep one for myself to make a Bee Yearbook quilt. This is the Rolling Stone block from Fat Quarter Shop.
Pat Sloan is running a new mystery for 2017, the Children's Library Mystery. This is the first block. I've decided to use a fat quarter pack of the Mini Fun Fair by Melly and Me for Ella Blue Fabrics.
Next up is this week's block for the 52 Week's with the Quilter's Planner 2017 hosted by Gnome Angel. This block is Doves in the Daylight by Michelle Bartholomew. The block on the right is a block from the Project 48 with the borders added to fit this new quilt.
I ALSO (told you I got a lot done) finished up ALL of the blocks for the Ugly Christmas Sweaters quilt that was designed and hosted by Sew Fresh Quilts. I got the sashing put on all of the blocks that I finished this week. I am seriously gonna love this quilt!
And last, but certainly not least, I made the test blocks for my new pattern, Over the Rainbow. I love this so very much! I used the new fabric Nordic Stitches by Northern Quilts for Moda.
This week, I hope to keep up on my quilt alongs, get the top done for the Ugly Christmas Sweaters, and to get the first step done for the rest of the blocks for the Over the Rainbow quilt. What about you?
