Happy New Year!!

Don't know about you, but this year is shaping up to be VERY interesting! I have a lot planned and many goals and as usual, I'm just not too sure how it's all going to get done!! But isn't that what makes life interesting??

One of my goals is to finally finish my Baby Jane quilt. Of course, this was also one of last year's goals!! Feeling much more hopeful about it this year though. All that is left are 30 blocks, 11 triangles and 2 corner kites. Wow, that feels like it's almost done to me! The decision is final that this quilt is going to be heirloom machine quilted, so that is one part of this I won't have to worry about, other than the $400-$500 price tag, of course!!!

Here are my latest finishes....
The first one is a block that was done all except for the corner melons a while back and they turned out to be just too small to hand applique. I considered just leaving them off, but in the end I decided to machine applique them. This is the only time I have used machine applique on this entire quilt. I guess I can live with that! This one is J9, called  Maury High School, was machine pieced and appliqued with 13 pieces.

This triangle is RS-12, called Linda's Church in the Valley, was paper pieced and regular pieced and has 29 pieces.  To me this one looks more like a wedding cake than a church, but oh well!

 Okay, this one looks wonky at the top, but it really isn't! This is RS-5, Geisha Girl, machine and regular pieced, with a bit of applique and has 29 pieces again. It is the only block in my quilt made of a solid color fabric. This is a triangle I made about a year and a half ago and somehow lost. I had hoped it would show up because it was made of the last bit of a cute polka dot fabric that I loved. Oh well. It feels great to have this one redone!

This one is RS 11 called Hills of Jerusalem, is paper and regular pieced and has 31 pieces. Don't you just want to know how they came up with these names????

This morning I put the final touches on RS13, the last one in that row! Unfortunately, my camera is on the blink, so I can't show it to you. Will save that for another post.

Thank you for visiting my posts. I wish you and yours a healthy and happy New Year!
Do tell, what are your goals for next year, sewing or otherwise????
