Happy New Year 2020

>> Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Happy New Year! I am enjoying my holiday break right now and looking ahead to quilting projects for this coming year. Of course as a quilter I have looking back to do too - several UFOs and unquilted tops are part of my plan to complete this year. Maybe you too?

I made this bowtie table topper for my QUILTsocial posts over the Christmas week. And I made napkin rings and made buttonholes for the first time! It was a lot of fun. You can find the tutorials for both projects over at QUILTsocial. Start here.

Quilters can make buttonholes too

I'm also participating in my New Year's tradition of sewing with my online group of friends. We have an online luau and all quilt and chat for several days. It's a time when we all make an effort to be online at the same time in our group and catch up, sew and enjoy a few good laughs and photos too!

I'm working on putting the sashing and borders on my Winter Fun quilt. I added a few more blocks and am doing a different setting. I started webbing it together last night and hope to have a finish some time today, even with parade watching thrown in.

Plus I decided to make a mini quilt for my sewing room of my word for the year. This year I chose BELIEVE. I'm using Pat Sloan's free alphabet letters (you can find them on her free pattern page) and cut out my backing last night. I hope to get this finished today or tomorrow too. Not finishing is something I want to work on this year. 

Of course, sometimes I'm just trying something out and don't plan to make it into something and this is something I need to keep doing - playing is definitely part of my 2020 plans!

If you're still reading, Happy New Year again! I know it's not all happy all the time. I'm glad you're here. You are enough. 

With Joy,
