there was progress on this as well.  So many quilts, so little time.  (big sigh)

Block #2 Square in a Square

I love how this is coming along.  Are any of you sewing along with  GnomeAngel?
She has great tutorials on making these blocks.
Next project is to catch up on my Moda Blockheads!!!

 Happy New Year,,, (belated)

I think it's going to be a good year!!  I won't think otherwise.!

My first quilt of the year is a gift to our oldest DD.  I have never made one specifically for her.
Here is a picture of the first four blocks. (Only 12 more to go hehee).
Credit for pattern is Moda Bake Shop and Little Bunny Quilts for the pattern.

I am using Kaffe Fassett layer cake.  It is not my cuppa tea., but she will love it.
Then I hope to start a couple of scrap quilts and work on my UFO pile Oh MY!!!

Last year my main focus was to Purge and I did a pretty good job.  This year my focus is health and fitness.  I have returned to Weight Watchers and I am making a point to get my exercise in on a regular basis. In addition to running/walking with one of my daughters three times a week, I am also trying some new classes at the gym and biking.  I hope to be a new me by year end.
Have a great week! Until next time.
