Happy New Year!

I spent New Years Eve doing some applique and putting tumblers up on my design wall.

First the Applique....Old Voices New Impressions.  I was hoping to get the last 6 blocks finished in 2015.  I did finish all but one.

Acorns and Leaves

Bird with Fruit


Honey Suckle


I'm hoping to get the final block finished by tomorrow.  Then I can trim the blocks and cut the sashing and corner stones.  I'm am so happy that I joined in this Sew Along.

In my last post I showed you the flannel I was gifted and the tumblers I cut.  I added more tumbler to the pile from my stash.

This is the die I used for the tumblers.  It went very quickly.

These are some of the tumblers up on my design wall.  They are not quite a bright as they look here.  I plan on sewing the top together this weekend and quilting it next week.

I've been reading quite a few blogs and noting that quite a few of them have lists of planned projects to do in 2016.  I have made to do lists and they worked fine until I got behind and then I felt bad.  My plan for 2016 is to finish some on going projects to the quilt top stage, and start quilting some of quilt tops that have been stacking up for years.  I also need to finish hand quilting my Henrietta Whiskers quilt.  I only need to finish the borders and then bind it.  My next hand quilted project will be the Old Voices New Impressions quilt. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a Happy, Prosperous, and Productive New Year.

Hugs, Cathy

I see you did the cherry block. I have been debating which one block to leave out as I only need 25 blocks and I think there are 26 applique block patterns in the book.

Cathy I adore your blocks!!!! We need to meet for coffee one of these days so you can explain how you applique - I think I have it, except where one piece goes over another. I have yet to start my needleturn journey but I think it will happen this week! Happy New Year, hon!
