NewFOs - January

The NewFO Challenge over at Cat Patches was a great idea for keeping the projects I'm longing to try at the forefront of my mind.  That said, I was able to start two of the items on my NewFO list this month

NewFO2012

The first, includes a block I shared Monday.
It's for a quilt I'm calling
Wintermint
because the Bliss fabric reminds me of
peppermint and wintergreen.
And here's my idea for a second block that will go with it.
Except the white will be plain white (no dots)
and white will also replace the blue dot fabric.
I really wanted to have the second block done before this post
but it didn't happen.

we don't have to finish our projects, just get started on them.

Well I have one more project I started too.
It's my Raggedy Ann Redwork Quilt.
(Normally I won't show pieces that aren't pressed 
but these are still in process so I don't have a choice.)
My mom is helping with the embroidery...this is her first block.
It's fun to have projects we can do together...this is my first block.
And here they are together.
Of course there are more...and we'll get to them eventually.

So that's it for me, two NewFOs started in January.
Looking forward to seeing everyone else's starts!

Love those colors! What cute projects! I really need to learn how to paper piece so that I can make the flying geese block that curves.

I actually really enjoy seeing the works in progress. It's really fun. I'm so jealous of your circle block. It's so fresh and so pretty.

Thanks for following me. I checked out your blog and find it very inspiring. I'm following you now too.
