New Year, New Quilt!

I have started a new quilt!  I saw the inspiration for this quilt several months ago on the front of a quilt book and immediately knew it was something I was going to do.

I bought the material and then let it sit for awhile because I had other projects going.  But with the beginning of this new year, I figured I had a good excuse to start a new quilt!

I've got the first four blocks done and I'm so happy with how they look!  Hopefully I'll be able to keep the motivation moving and get some major progress done.  We have a trip coming up in two weeks, and I know things will get stalled for awhile, so I really need to keep moving while I have the chance!

I wish y'all a Happy New Year and hope this year will be the best yet!  Has anyone else started a new quilt in the new year?


  1. Moving right along - keep up the good work!!!
    It's looking good.

  2. I've just recently discovered this block and love it. Your colours are gorgeous!! How's the quilt coming along? Any progress? :)

    1. Unfortunately, all quilting/sewing has been put on hold for the last few months. We have been/are in the middle of moving from Mexico, and my sewing machine has not made it to our new local yet! =) But soon, I hope, because I've been itching to get quilting for a LONG time now!!

    2. I love this! How gorgeous and those colors are amazing. Did you ever finish??
