It’s been 10 days since I quilted Mom’s BearPaw which was my last day of sewing … where has the time gone?!! I’m already antsy and ready to sew but I’ve got a week before the movers come on January 4, then we drive home on January 6 and that’s when the fun begins … I have a little prep work to do in the sewing room before the movers deliver my stuff but they’re giving me a huge window for delivery … it might be the week of the 8th or it might be the week of the 15th.
I won’t want to drag out a lot of fabric or get started on an involved project so I’ve been thinking about what I should work on when I get home and I’ve decided January will be Jelly Roll month. I’ve got a ton of them and they make an easy grab and go project.
I’ve got a little kit from Craftsy with this framed 16 patch quilt
And I’ve saved this little quilt that was made from a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop website. I don’t know who’s quilt it is because it wasn’t identified on the website where I found it but I love the combination of the boxed squares and strips.
So I think I’ll start with these two and add in some already cut Happy Blocks for Maine and wait for my stuff to be delivered. These will also make easy projects to work on while I slowly set up and organize everything once’s it’s delivered. Maybe it won’t seem so overwhelming if I allow myself to sew a little too.
What are you planning for your first quilt of 2018???
