In Progress...

January has proved to be a rather productive month.  I completed my first set of blocks for the "Just take 2 Challenge" and I'm well on my way to completing set 2.  I will be using dark blues and whites for this challenge... I figure you can't go wrong with blue and white.



Next was two afternoon sewing session that got this scrappy bargello sewn into a top.  I used Bonnie's instructions, but instead of 2 1/2" strips I used 3 1/2" strips.  I don't think the effect is as nice as it would be with the smaller strips, but it will be perfect for Project Linus.  I don't know many patterns that come together as quickly as this one did and I already have another bin of smaller strips ready to go to make a second one.


Until next time....

Truly Jane...your blog is the only one where I always say to myself that the photographs of your quilt projects are as beautiful as the projects themselves!
