New Project

I love to make scrap quilts.
The more fabrics the better.
All those wonderful fabrics that 
I've collected are pulled out and auditioned
for the new project.
We all get excited.

This may seem like a challenging time of the year
to start something new.
I admit I have plenty on my list to accomplish in the 
next couple of weeks.
But at the store, January will be here soon and
quilter's will be looking for new ideas to start the year.

Our Stashbuster's class is one of our best attended classes.
Everyone has an extensive stash.
So I needed to start my sample.

Carrie Nelson's newest book, A Touch of Rosie, Quilts, is filled
with wonderful ideas for looking into a stash, using a number of fat quarters, and 
creating a stunning quilt.

So into the stash.
21 assorted cream fat quarters,
 14 assorted dark fat quarter,
 Carrie's directions are very systematic and easy to follow.
then mark...

 We're making flying geese units.
212 geese to be exact,
almost like my backyard!
Add a few star blocks.

I'll have to see what the days bring to 
see how far I get before Christmas.
I've got a good start.
Until Next Time-
