I completed my previous project (Portal). It is now off to the quilter (thanks Pat)! I have started another project. It's a simple free pattern from FatQuarter Shop, called Charm Pack Cherry Quilt. I am using 2 Fig and Plum printed charm packs and 2 different solids (pattern calls for 1 solid so hopefully it looks scrappy and not ruined)....we shall see.

Made strides on the work in progress. I finally finished the quilt top. It looks a little plain to me, but it turned out exactly as I pictured in my head. My binding strips have been cut, now all I have to do is piece the backing. I chose a light blue flannel. That flannel back should make it nice an cozy. I think I will call it Portal, it kind of reminds me of a doorway.

Can't say it was a particularly productive day on the sewing front. It's 8pm and I've just sewn my first two seams in over a week. Lol

At the January KMQG meeting members were asked to write 5 quilting/sewing resolutions. Our purpose... open in December and see which items were high enough in priority to actually become finished projects/events and which are still UFO's or still on the To Do List!
Here is my list:
1. Finish my weekender
2. Visit Spool in Chattanooga Tn and make something with a purchase from the trip
3. Try paper piecing (I have never yet attempted it)
4. Finish at least two quilts
5. Save $ in order to attend QuiltCon.
Below are some inspiration photo's that I found online. Sorry I don't have photo creds.

It has been slow goin, but I have made some progress. My inspiration comes from a pattern called Diamond Rings. However, the layout in the following picture may be all I use in my quilt top. I am thinking of doing the remainder in solids for a very minimal effect. I also thought about having the final layout flipped, meaning this section of the quilt top would flow top to bottom instead of side to side (which is how it appears on my sewing table).
Hopefully sometime soon I'll have an end result. BTW Happy 2014

The fear of working with someone else's fabric struck a fear in me which I didn't know existed. However, I made it through and was actually very impressed with the results. I am in the process of starting to bind the quilt. It was quilted by my wonderful friend Pat Pike.
