I'm happy to be joining A Lovely Year of Finishes this year over at Fiber of All Sorts. I missed last year since I began blogging mid-year. There is no excuse for 2014.
And I've started another quilt! Why not? I decided to plunge right into the quilt along over at Red Pepper Quilts. This one is an economy block quilt, but my block size is 12.5-inches.
When I first started hoarding collecting fabric, I was first drawn to princess/girly prints. I also was drawn to larger prints. I have yet to find the right quilt pattern for the large and girly prints.
Well, the economy block seems to show off the large prints. I drew the block in EQ7 for a 12.5" unfinished block.
So, this is goal #1 for January, finish piecing the top for the economy block quilt. I think 5 blocks square will be a good size. This is a quick quilt to get me in the quilting mode.
Goal #2: My weekender bag needs to have a market tote friend. Really. After all, I have two shoulders, right? The market tote shall, of course, match the weekender. I love Fort Firefly.
Goal #3: I would like to triple the size of the isosceles quilt. I'd love to say that I will be done piecing this beast by the end of January, but that's unlikely. Those triangles are devilish, but I do want to keep working on this.
Goal #4: I will make a Valentine's Day pillow, maybe 2, but at least 1. I'm wishy-washy, and Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Yippee! -Not for being wishy-washy. This will include foundation paper piecing.
