A difficult but necessary decision was made last night.  Emily was 20 years old and very sick.  She was always a quiet, gentle girl and a dearly loved member of our family.

We will miss you forever. Goodbye Em.

New Project

This is the start of my second project for the new year.  From the current McCall's Quilting magazine America Loves Scrap Quilts I am making a quilt called Paper Chain by Deanne Eisenman.  Construction of the blocks is super simple - just squares and rectangles, and I will be able to use up lots of scraps along with a few new fat quarters!

Finished quilts and a new one started

I gave my son and daughter each new quilts for Christmas this year.  It was a bit of a panic to get them done on time.  I was putting on the binding the Saturday before Christmas but was done with two days to spare!  These quilts were my final two finishes for 2012.

My first quilt project of 2013 is this scrappy little quilt I finished piecing today.  I am off work the rest of the week so plan to have this one quilted before I go back next Monday.  I love being able to spend so many uninterrupted days in a row in my sewing room.

I hope you too are having a very quilty start to the new year.
