Yester-Year Challenge

Christine over at Quilt Monster In My Closet started the Yester-Year Challenge
to get some of those UFOs older than five years finished….
and of course, there are a few of those in my closet!!!
so this month, I finished this little baby quilt that was a mystery quilt project
with my Honeybees Guild back in… okay, I know it’s been more than five years,
but exactly when??? can’t say…. lol!
And it was perfect timing…
it made a perfect baby gift for one of my co-workers!
Last year, Edyta Sitar was a guest on The Quilt Show and talked about her book
Friendship Strips & Scraps and gave ideas on hosting a strip exchange…
Yeah, I had to join their strip exchange!
I also started one with my Cherry Blossom Quilters Guild.
This is how we’re using the strips for one of the quilts in the book
(2 of the girls have already finished theirs!)
I added some peaches in honor of my sweet Georgia
and modified the pattern’s doors and windows just a bit.
My next step is adding a little more detail to the “glass”
and then will be ready to stitch down the appliques, Yay!
This is my favorite one with the little kids in the windows!
You can watch Edyta’s interview show free here!
Visit Christine’s blog to join the fun and inspiration,

A great challenge…

If you’re like me, you have a few projects that have been waiting for your attention,
so I’m joining Christine over at Quilt Monster In My Closet
(don’t you just love the name of her blog?),
and hope to get a few of mine finished!!!
She is hosting a great challenge to encourage us to get those UFOs finished,
and the rules are so stress-free, I know you’ll love it!
You can find the details here.

Design Wall Monday…

On my design wall today are my first two blocks for Craftsy’s free Block of the Month taught by Amy Gibson, and boy where they fun to make! -each of these blocks would definitely make great quilts.
I’m using Moda’s A Stitch in Color fabric – very vibrant and fresh against the white…
Can’t wait to work on February and March’s blocks
there are a total of 20 blocks, two every month, so I’ve got to get busy and catch up, lol!
