Cat Patches is sponsoring a NewFOChalange again this year.
From her blog :
Each month, start up at least one new quilt project. It can be anything you like from bags to potholders or mug rugs to king-sized bed quilts. You do NOT need to complete any project during the year. All you need to do to participate is start something new during any given month. On the last day of the month, write a blog post about your new project and link up to my linky party. As the year progresses, please update us on your previous months' NewFO projects. If you don't have a blog, not to worry! Just post pictures of your work on my FlickR Group or any other image-sharing website, copy the URL, and use that to link-up.
This is my first time to play so here goes.
I started and completed several small projects this month. I opened a storage bin labeled Kits and Projects and pulled out the first thing I touched. That is how I chose all of these projects.
Pass Time Fabrics in Gainesville Texas. There were 5 fat quarters and insul-bright in the kit.The fabrics are folded and layered and stitched. Then you turn them right side out, through the 'box top' and top stitch.
The Old Craft Store in Carrollton Texas.
Corner Square Quilts in Cedar Hill, Texas. I would like to make more of these 12 inch blocks for a quilt.
Heart of Texas One Stop Shop Hop
from Barb's Quilt Nook in Kingsland Texas.
This is the backing fabric, when I get around to finishing it! I bought this kit at a Bernina store that was going out of business it was inside a Hancock fabric store.
All of the above projects were pulled at random out of a bin and took no time at all to make.
This next piece is a true NewFO. It is a BOM that goes for 17 months. Texas Treasures. I completed block 2 in December. I started Block 1 in January and Block 4 in February. There is a lot of hand work involved. Almost all of block 3 is hand work.
That is 13 projects with all but two complete! I also completed a place mat for my youngest grand son. It is laminated cotton on one side and Chalk Board fabric on the other. Now when they eat out, his Mom can put his food on that instead of the table. I also made two tiny owls in the embroidery hoop for a friend. I did not get pictures of these three projects.
