Hello 2017

Day 2 of the new year and I've been staying cozy in my sewing room. Setting up my new planner/tracker was a good time to decide on new sew-alongside and BOM's.  I've had this "kit" of fabric for a couple of years.  My MD guild made bundles from donated stash.

I just happened to have an empty drawer so I started the 1st 2 blocks of Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge. 182 days, once a week, 25 blocks. When it's done, this quilt will be donated to Southern Comforters Quilt BINGO.

Then I moved on to quilting some of those Bargello Exploration tops.  Decisions, decisions - what thread? What design? And ... do I really want to keep practicing sit-down quilting?

Swirls ...

Funky feathers ...

And ... Um ... some other design (?)

Each with weird "what the heck" fabric on the back ... using up some stash.

Yes, I did some sit-down quilting.

Tomorrow, I hope to be doing some HandiQuilter magic ... standing up!

Love the idea for the Quilt Bingo quilt. You will be the first to know that I've gotten a date and it will be October 21, 2017. I'm sharing that with the board tonight.
