Happy New Year!

I have had a fabulous vacation. Way too much food and other celebratory things! Nothing like overindulgence to make the new year a long awaited arrival. Clean eating is topping the list with regular walking a close second. None of these are new for me so just have to knuckle under and do it. I am going to continue on the fabric diet. Fell off the wagon so to speak and bought tons of fabric at the sales, so have lots of fun projects to do.

The Q1 list:

My nephew's quilt, it keeps getting bumped but I do want him to have it for his birthday. I do have until July. It is a sewn together top!
I saw a tree skirt on the Made to Treasure Blog and fell in love! She guided me to the tutorial from Missouri Quilt Company. So I made two. One for my youngest and one for my eldest daughters. They are in the same range as their Christmas blankets from last year. These need to be finished.

Kate Spain for K.
Jan Shade Beach for M.
Plus quilt. Sewing the binding down. Love hand sewing.
Baby blanket for my cousin's new grandson.
And a few more cut out for all the baby's on the way.
My Tula Pink Quilt. Not sure whether to hand or machine bind this one. Love hand binding. Love this quilt!
And Strawberry Fields. Started this quilt way back. Somehow when I was reading the directions I missed where it said "Advanced". Just could not wrap my head around it. It is in the first Material Obsession  book.
And last a Christmas quilt I started for me at least ten years ago. I took a workshop and started the quilt, however my ruler had the incorrect angles marked on it. So borrowed one, and she wanted it back. In hindsight I do not know why I did not go buy another one. No picture, however when you see it completed you will know it is at least that old! Roses galore!

And it all might get bumped as I am going to test a pattern, yippee! This was definitely on my bucket list! So excited.

Happy New Year to all!
