I have finally been quilting again this winter break! Yippy. Also, don't faint that I have posted too! Things have been busy with work, school, family...yes we all know how that is. I finished the top and back for a Moda U quilt that I have had for a long time, Patchwork Tiles, using Northwoods fabrics. Oh and you ask where did I get it from...well from bad Melisa's of course. It has been put away because I cut something wrong and just didn't want to deal with it....and it was only on one block. In kits, if you make a booboo and can't recut the "big" booboo piece again, well you just have to buy more! Well of course it has been a while, but I did find the fabric online and it only came in a fat quarter pack...yes we bought the whole thing. I am using the extra fats for the backing and cut of a 2 1/4" of each to use as the binding. I had only 4 whole fat quarters left, a finished top, back and binding. One down...hmmm how many more to go?
I have also been working on a block of the month from Jan Patek. I probably shouldn't say what year, but it is being all hand appliqued. I really enjoy this. I have 2 more months to go and then it goes together...okay it is from 2007 BOM program, but it is hand I am clear!
I hope everyone has had a happy holiday and I am looking forward to a new year of good times. k


  1. I am so glad you've had some time during your break to do some quilting - you need it for your sanity! Alas, I can't say the same - I've spent my time trying to finish out the year and planning for the new year - there's always something! A goal (I never make resolutions!) is to MAKE more quilting time in '09!

  2. Can't wait to see your new projects! I'm so glad you've had time to sew.
