Perfect Project Found!

Didn't get much accomplished on the flower quilt blocks last night because The Boy (our son) stayed up late to watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. I got a few inches of a leaf appliqu├ęd but nothing more.

However we made a trip to the library and after paying our usual fines (why can’t we get books back on time?!) The Husband watched The Kids in the children’s area while I went to the periodicals room. I came across a quilting magazine that had a pattern that will be PERFECT for my next project. I am so incredibly excited.

Of course I can’t tell you what the name of the magazine was. Quilter’s Monthly, maybe. I can’t even tell you the name of the quilt. It is square and has a large center square with a pieced snowflake, and smaller surrounding squares with a star in each of them. The whole thing is done in two colors, with a binding of a third color. It is gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get into working on it. I think I may try my hand at hand-piecing for the first time on this one. This will be the first project that I am making solely for my own pleasure. I can’t wait to get started.

But first thing’s first. I must finish the flower quilt blocks, sew the top & quilt it. Maybe I could get some shopping in for the snowflake quilt on the side…
