Here I Go Again.....Starting New Projects

Even though you all know I have lists filling literally pages (you've seen 'em) of 'old' projects/UFO's, or as Lynn calls them 'Works in Progress"...it IS a New Year and it's energizing to be starting a New Project.....or two.... okay, I happen to have three small quilts in mind.
I've chosen a theme for each month this year - a way to remind myself to  experiment and add freshness to my on-going projects.

January is Amish style.Here is an assortment of fabrics I plan to use for my first design; the classic Diamond in a Square.

February is Pennsylvania German style. I pulled some pieces from my stash that should work.

In March I'm going back to the '70's.  The 1970's!! 
Where did I get all of these? 

I've had to think ahead - pre-planning these three months because I will be traveling and won't have access to my fabric stash.

 I start sewing tomorrow.....
Stay Tuned!


  1. looks like a plan! love the fabrics for FEB!!!!!
    although amish style quilts have been calling me this past year.

  2. Hi Jean,
    Our guild in PA is having a challenge for our May Quilt show- PA German Quilts. I am working on very similar fabrics to your February pile. It will be interesting to see what you decide to do with them.

  3. I think you got those 70s fabrics from my stash--they were my mother's! : )

  4. I love att the fabrics, the solids are my favorites!....so many opportunities!!

  5. Goldenstitches - what have you decided to make?
