I gave some thought as to what I would focus on this year. When I went in to my room, I realized it's time to make some quilts with my leaders and enders from last year. So, that's how this year will begin. First, I have sewed 2" squares in four patches all year. I've looked for a pattern I liked and finally settled on one from Bonnie hunter's addicted to scraps series in Quiltmaker magazine. I had gotten a beautiful cheddar solid and have been wanting to use it. I think I will love this quilt.
Then I found this leader ender challenge on Bonnie's site. She had this going after finding an antique quilt. I'm not totally happy with the light bow ties, so I made more. That is my usual answer to a color that doesn't play well.
This is the small box I have, but it doesn't take much to make a block. This quilt will be as large as the bow ties I have. These finish 3.5 each.
And lastly my first finished project for 2013, although knitting. I've wanted to knit socks for a long time and finally bite the dust and started. Took a lot to get over my hesitation in making socks, but I keep after it and finally have a pair. I'm so pleased with the end pair.
