2015 … Off to the Races


Having traveled to Europe for the holidays, getting good and sick while there, getting my kids through finals, and dealing with my ailing mother I am quite impressed with myself for getting a project finished so quickly. Okay, it definitely wasn’t the most challenging project, and baby quilts are pretty small, but still!

I do love it. I got the inspiration for the design from a blogger I follow…3 and3 quarters. The quilt is destined for the new baby girl my husband’s niece is expecting in March. The first great-grand baby on his side of the family.

I haven’t really gotten into any other projects yet since getting back from vacation. I am mostly contemplating how to quilt a couple of tops I have lying around. Deciding on a quilting design seems to be my biggest challenge when making a quilt. I feel as though a wrong decision at this point could be fatal (not literally of course), so I often drag my feet for far to long.

Our quilt guild is having its annual winter retreat in a little over a week so I best be thinking about what I want to take to work on. What is the best way to go? Something simple so quick progress is made, or a challenging project that will be more interesting to work on???
