Hey! It’s beginning to look a lot like January! My Christmas tree and decorations have all been taken down and packed away. I even took down my blog’s Christmas colors. The holidays are fun and all, but I’m always eager to put them behind me and get back to normal. I feel like I can finally take a deep breath and relax. : )
Anyway, here’s what I’m up to …
Ongoing Projects: Urban Lattice Quilt Along. Someday, I would love to make a plan and stick with it. Just one time: Make plan, buy fabric, and execute said plan, with no changes. Is that too much to ask? But of course, since I had a ridiculously long time to think about my Urban Lattice Quilt before actually starting it, I just couldn’t leave well enough alone.
The most urgent project on my list right now is the girl counterpart to my Modern Meadow Baby Quilt. One of these two quilts will go to a surprise-gender baby due in February, so I need to get moving on the girly one. It suddenly occurred to me that the Urban Lattice design would be a great choice for this project. That means the couch quilt I was planning to make for myself in this quilt-along has been back-burned in favor of a baby Urban Lattice in Far Far Away 2. But I’m modifying the design a bit, because I really want to showcase those adorable Heather Ross prints. I shrank the block down to 8″ finished instead of 12″, and my solid background strips are a lot narrower.
So far I’ve only made one block, so I’m having a hard time picturing how this will look when it’s done. I really hope I like it. The FFA2 is already cut, so I’m kinda committed now. My background strips are Kona Bone and the lattice strips are Kona Stone.
