My 1st Project of 2013!

Right before Christmas, I finished my Carpenter Star pillow and loved making it so much, I decided to put together another block from the same book and make one more pillow. I used the red strips from the Sherbet Pips jelly roll I had and I really like it! The block is called Love in the Mist and I got the directions for putting it together in a sampler book by Nicky and Pam Lintott.

And here are all 3 pillows I made these last few weeks. Love in the Mist, Carpenter Star and the November Schnibble, Drop.

I am now out of pillow forms so I need to get to the store and get more. These pillows are totally addictive!

Before I get started on more pillows though, I said in yesterday's post that 2013 was going to be a year of finishes for me. I've got a pretty big pile of tops that need to be quilted and I am determined to turn them all i to finished quilts this year. To help me stay on track, I decided to participate in A Lovely Year of Finishes hosted by Shanna at Fiber of all Sorts and Melissa at Sew BitterSweet Designs.

For January, my one finish is going to be Leap Year which was the June 2012 Schnibble. I've got the backing all ready, so all that's left to do is quilt and bind it.

On a side note, this is my first blog post using Blogsy for the iPad... I sure hope it works! :-)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2013 is good to you.
