Happy New Years!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and have a Happy New Year.
For me, this year is the year to finish projects, I have started and create with all of the wonderful prizes I have won and gifts given by friends. I am truly blessed and plan to make time to make time for myself and for charity quilts this year.

One of the things I started last year was a wool quilt. I have all the blocks sewn, except one, so it is just a matter of finishing that and embellishing the ones I made. The blocks are all different sizes, so I will be putting them on a background wool, that I have made to size and then filling in the empty spaces with scrap wool pieces. Sort of a crazy quilt, and a scrap quilt, so we shall see how it comes out;)

I looked in my old files and only saw one photo of a couple of blocks, so I will share a few more tonight and later when they are all embellished, I will do a group shot and progress. I have no idea what I am doing, just making them, sewing them and seeing what becomes of it.

I hope that all of you and your families  have a wonderful New Year that is filled with blessings.

The blocks are made from various patterns in books and a bit of my own, no one designer, I just used what I like.

Looking good, Debbie. You could also add some simple blocks like 9 patch made with wool, if you run out of applique ones.

Innovation is the creation of the new or the re-arranging of the old in a new way. You keep amazing me with your creativity Debbie :-)
Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come and to the memories that we hold.

What a great idea - just take little from here and a little from there of all the patterns that you love. You are sure to end up with a quilt that says 'You!' and will be loved forever and every.
