Crikey. I’ll never keep these organized at this rate. I had this great idea that I would have one blog post per block like I’ve done with the Splendid Sampler but I didn’t keep them straight in what order I did them. To add to that, I’m not sewing them in numerical order, alphabetical order, or row order so it’s a challenge to figure out what ones I’ve posted and what ones I’ve finished but haven’t posted.
And those aren’t even all of the ones I’ve finished. I have more that I’ve taken photos of but haven’t uploaded them to WordPress yet. My organization skills are lacking these past couple of weeks apparently!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and enjoyed some time with family and/or friends. I ended up giving 2 Christmas stockings as gifts and then gave everyone (I think it was 12 people) a pillow case that I had made. I surprised everyone (except my husband who was in on the deal) with 3 quilts for the youngest in the group. I did give out some non-sewing presents but that’s not as exciting!
I also received some fantastic quilting related presents as well – fabric, fabric, and more fabric. And thread, thread and more thread. Those are 2 things I can always use! I’m pretty sure I have enough to keep me busy – seriously – through the middle of summer.
I don’t always make a resolution for the new year and I’m not always apt to keep it when I do. But on my list is to use my dslr camera more. I get into a habit of picking up my cell phone because it’s quick and convenient but it seems silly to have a real camera and not use it at least on occasion. I was playing with it earlier this week and caught a shot of rain bands on the horizon.

Wonderful and I doubt you are as disorganized as you say – it took a lot of incredible organizational skills and commitment to get all those gifts down for the holidays!!! 🙂
Those 3 quilts are priceless! I did buy myself a real camera. but a cheap one. But need to make myself read the manual!!
Beautiful horizon photo!
You can always use more fabric!
I absolutely love the colours in that first block. Seriously it might be my favourite quilt block ever! Haha.
Fabric and thread are such delightful words,even more so when one receives them as a gift! Keep the blocks rolling ,they are fun to view. 😄
