Quilts in January

Here are the first couple customer quilts that I quilted in January.
The first one has wintery fabrics, including pinecones and holly.  It is made from large blocks of rectangles and a square.  It's quilted with a woodsy pattern of pinecones, acorns, leaves and branches.  It turned out great and would look perfect in a cabin!

 Next up is a small quilt.  Wide table runner size.  Log cabin blocks in red and creams.  I used a feather with flower in cream areas and another free-hand feather design in the red areas.   A double feathered wreath is in the center (red).

New Year Resolutions

Hope you are ready for the New Year!  I am making resolutions by the handful and one of them is to be healthier in 2011.  I joined a health club and I'm working to make exercise a healthy habit.
I also joined www.sparkpeople.com, an on-line website that helps me track my nutrition, fitness and other goals.  I love the menu plans and calorie tracker.  It's free - so check it out.

I did not quilt or piece anything over the Christmas holiday.  I took a break from all sewing and quilting activities.  But it's back to work now.  I am quilting a customer quilt right now - a "Cinco De Mayo" quilt (Karen Stone pattern) and I'll share pictures when it's done.  It's very time consuming.

Hope you are all quilting and sewing to your heart's content!
