First is the And Sew On BOM:
Such a cute block! I will admit that I took the easy way out and drew the lines on my ruler with a fabric marker instead of embroidering them on...what can I say, I was in a hurry to get to the next block :)
Super Penguin QAL:
This block is actually from last year but it is from the latest set that has been released. I WOULD be caught up on this QAL now if it wasn't for the fact that I have decided that although I like my blocks individually, I HATE them together. Therefore, I will be starting over using a white background on all blocks to make it have at least a somewhat unified look.
Sugar Club BOM:
I'm digging into my Denise Schmidt stash for this one (gulp!) I'm extremely happy with the way it came out and cannot wait for next month's pattern!
Lucky Stars BOM:
I have decided on this BOM I will be using black and gray as my background fabrics- alternating every other block. When using black as the background I will use gray and one other color and when using gray as the background I will use black and one other color in the design (hopefully that makes sense). Again, I'm really happy with this block!
Threadbias Pretty in Patchwork Holidays Sew Along:
January's project is the cute little paper pieced polar bear. I did make a smaller version of him along with is little penguin friends as a wall hanging to give to my dad for Christmas but this one is for my family. The first Christmas item I have been able to make for our family-better late than never :) I did change up the back and made it an envelope back instead of one with a zip closure. The back is red with light green polka dots--LOVE IT!
OKC Modern Quilt Guild BOM:
These are the fabrics that I chose to use. I did finish this block but the lighting was bad so the picture will have to wait.
Frosted Pumpkin Woodland Sampler:
Almost done! Soooo cute!
Frosted Pumpkin Winter Wonderland Sampler:
Not much progress on this. I'm kind of working on it in my spare time since there's nearly 11 months before it needs to be done.
And I finally got my fabrics from The Connecting Thread. I went a little crazy with their end of year clearance. The bottom left shows all of the fabrics together and the other pictures have them broken down into categories/collections - clockwise from top left:
Manly fabrics (brother approved) :P, Parlor Pets, Bookish, Soaked, nautical fabrics, and the whole order.
And I am extremely proud that I went to JoAnn's and came out with exactly what I needed, no more, no less. I now have the white for the background of the new Super Penguin blocks, the black fabric for the backing of the Pervalong Wall Hanging (yes, I have finally decided !!!), the binding for the How Far Will You Go Quilt, the binding for the Pervalong, and some super cute fabric for a pair of pj pants for Squeak :)
