Can you believe it? It's 2014 already. 14 is my favorite number...so maybe that means this will be a good year? What am I saying...every year is a good year because I am blessed with good health, a wonderful family and a nice size fabric stash! LOL!
We woke up to a light snow falling...it looks so fresh and pure...a great way to start the new year!
I've had a couple leisurely days this week, so plenty of time to sew up a couple projects. These blocks are for our local guild. A couple months ago, they had packets made up with fabrics and a block pattern...if you chose to take one, you sewed up as many blocks as you could with the fabric inside. This is the fabric/block I chose...it's called Crockett's Cabin. I wasn't particularly excited about the fabric choices, but since it wasn't something that wasn't really "mine," I just went with it....and I was pleasantly surprised. It's a great block! The blocks will be assembled with other blocks to make sampler style quilts for charity.
I did switch up the placement a little to make a dark and a light version. I think I prefer the dark version.
Although these blocks won't be assembled together, I wanted to see what they would look like....
Hmmm...I really like that secondary design that comes out. I'll definitely have to keep this block in mind for the future...it would be a great scrap quilt too!
Remember this UFO from just a couple of days ago?
Ta-da!! I just whipped up a few more Scrappy Trips blocks and I have this 44" square baby quilt. The border strips are made from the leftover sewn strips from the center blocks. So quick and easy!! Now it goes on the "to be quilted" list. LOL
But the best part...an empty bin!! woohoo!!
Hope you have a wonderful first day of 2014!
