Brrrr ....!

It has been cold in our neck of the woods!  It's been as low at -17F (-27C).  Don't know about you, but when it's cold like that, I crave comfort foods!  That fatty stuff that I really shouldn't be having!  Today we have a sweltering 23F (-5) so it's perfect weather for quilting!

Do any of you make New Year Resolutions?  I sort of do.  I try to keep my list to things I can actually achieve.  This year, I have decided to make myself a priority and set healthy boundaries.  My goal is to stay focused.  For the past few years I've been all over the place with nothing getting fully completed.    I just have a big pile of do do.  Focus is my new mantra!

So, I focused on starting a new project! lol It's a block of the month being offered at Fibre.  It's call Beauty All Around.  I saw it at fall market 2014 and absolutely fell in love with it.  Here is block 1:


The sashing for the quilt is a square in a square block.  Of course, you can make whatever sashing you want but I liked the original one.  It's a perfect opportunity for me to use up my scraps.  I really wanted this quilt to have personal meaning and it will, as the fabrics used are from various projects etc...

Today is trimming day!


Hope you are enjoying your day and keeping warm!  Catch you later! Cheers!

I like the wool block of the month you have started. I have seen the whole quilt design and think it will make a beautiful piece.

-27C is far too cold for me! I would never go outside! lol At least it is good weather for quilting. And soup! I look forward to seeing your blocks.

That is a beautiful block and fun to work with wool in the winter. I am thinking of starting a flower piece tomorrow, time to get back to sewing.

Ouch, it's cold there! I think we got almost that cold last week -- I'm glad it's warmed back up to 28 today with some pretty snow.

Your quilt blocks look beautiful! I can't wait to see what this will look like when it's put together!
