Happy New Year!   Out with the old and in with the new.  We have each finished up some projects and are starting on new.

Vicki has made this great eye spy quilt.  She used wild life prints  but you could use anything- flowers, kids prints, fruits/vegetables – there are lots of options!  This pattern is called I Spy With a Twist and is the first pattern from designer Lisa Moore.  Three different size quilts are included in the pattern instructions.  imgp0100

Recently Vicki finished  a quilt from a fabric group called Early Frost.  The fabric is from Wilmington and features a wonderful buck in the trees.  imgp0097

Deb finished a quilt from The Pattern Basket called Country Ties.  They are hard to see, but the quilt features the cutest ties between the blocks.  Great quilt for fat quarters in any style.  Our quilt shows off different batiks and the picture on the pattern shows off assorted prints.

The Burpee Blankee from Strawberry Patches is just the thing for any new mother and baby.  These little blankees are perfect for the baby to play with as well as catching any messes.  I used flannel and chenille on the front and Minkee on the back.  Oh so soft and so cute!  imgp0101

To go with the Burpee Blankees how about a chenille baby blanket.  It is so easy to make with Timesless Treasures printed chenille fabric.  Layer your flannel pices with the printed flannel on top, baste, sew on the printed lines, cut the top layers between the stitching lines, bind, wash and you are done.  I choose a great print fabric for the back and picked out a green and a pink to layer on the top.  imgp0103

I am off to work on a great new tote bag.  Wishing you the very best New Year.  Till next time, happy crafting!
