January coming to a close

I can't believe that January is already coming to a close.  For the first part of the month I was very sick with the flu so I didn't get to quilt very much.
I only did 12 blocks done for this month for The 350 Blocks Project that Prairie Moon Quilts puts on ever year.  Below are the blocks that I did this month.

My mom and I are doing a challenge with each other with stripe fabric.  There was a video from Missouri Star Quilt Co.  Called The Quartered Stripes Quilt that we are making it with

Here is the stripe fabric that I am using:
Here are some of the blocks from the fabric.  Which I did these in one day.  I still have 1 1/4 yard of fabric to cut out. We both bought double the amount of fabric so we could make a bigger quilt.
There is 10 blocks of my for the month.

I am also doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017, I have a lot of scraps that I need to use up.  This month was Purple (which you all know is my fav color).  I am doing row of scrappy fabric.  See below the start of my row.

For the month of February will be See Green.

With being so sick for a while, I decided I needed to change my sewing room around.

Here is a short tour of my sewing room, I still have some more organizing to do.

First time using the iMovie software.

So for the month of January wasn't to bad, even though I was sick.  

Happy Quilting!

Welcome 2017 and Good-Bye 2016

Welcome 2017 and Good-Bye 2016

March 1st was my last post.  Sorry for not being very active in 2016.  There has been many ups and downs for my family in 2016.

In March I had a medical procedure, my last appointment was Oct 21st.  All is good now.  Found out my father-in-law has cancer, he has gone through treatment and is in remission now... Praise the Lord.

On June 28th we bought a house and on the 2nd of July we moved in.

I quit my job in November. My daughter come home for the holidays, with the grand babies.

They are growing so fast.  We are have another baby due March 3rd.  I had to wait till after everyone open their presents before I found out what we are having.   This is what I received in my last present Christmas morning.  The best gift.  We are having a Boy!!!!!

I plan on having more time to quilt in 2017, with a BOM in starting in June.  I am testing quilt patterns for a quilting magazine, so much to look forward to in 2017. Some I can't talk about until its time, but will let the world know when the time comes.   
I am also thinking about going back to school, (scary at almost 50 going back to school) but I can do it.

I will be blogging more this year, but for now I am just welcoming 2017.

Happy Quilting!!!
