So, I have chosen three projects to work on with my online quilting community.
The first is the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club. This group
The next project I am undertaking is Pat Sloan's 182 Day Solstice Challenge. We're making 12.5 inch blocks, so they are coming together quite easily. And best of all, I'm using up a fat quarter bundle of Joel Dewberry's Atrium collection that has been sitting in my closet for more than a year. Go, me!
Here are a couple of shots of the first blocks.
|Churndash Block for 182 Day Solstice Challenge|
|Day Into Night Star for 182 Day Solstice Challenge|
|Tide Pool Block for 182 Day Solstice Challenge|
|This is what all 3 blocks look like together.|
And the final project I'm tackling this year is the Chocolatier Block of the Month from Annemarie Chany of GenX Quilters. I have signed up and have immediately gotten 'stuck' trying to pick out fabrics for this gorgeous quilt. That one simple fact caused me to reflect on the other projects that I have signed up for in the past, only to go nowhere with them because I couldn't get the perfect fabrics together. What? Silly brain of mine.
Since 2017 is my Year of Tenacity, I cannot let this slide. So I am going to my local quilt shop this afternoon and select fabrics. Hopefully. I just cannot 'not' do this again!
What are you working on so far this year? Doh - I just remembered that I said I'd participate in our quilt guild's Mystery BOM, too. Good thing I'm 'retired'!
Quilting with a smile,

You are going to have a busy year ahead of you! Have fun picking out the fabrics for your BOM. That is one of my favorite steps to a quilt!ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Barb! How about posting your Winter Solstice blocks on Q&L? They are pretty! CarolReplyDelete
If it's any consolation, I felt the exact same way about Chocolatier. I always feel I need to pick my own fabrics to make it mine, but sometimes the wheels just spin. I'll look forward to seeing your choices.ReplyDelete
Nice! I really like that white fabric from your churn dash! I'm doing the QAL too!ReplyDelete
Hey, lookin' good with the Solstice blocks! Love the colors and fabrics you're using.ReplyDelete
