New Year Brings New Projects

Well, I started a design in my head one night just after New Year's.  It is a simple block using all kinds of left over fabric.  The 2 1/2" squares have been utilized over the past 2 years and the box just doesn't seem to empty!  The 2 1/2" strips were from projects over the past year including kids PJs.  The 5" squares were leftover from prior projects.  It amazes me just how many quilts you can make from a little bag/box of scraps.  I have an idea to use some of the remaining scraps too.  I haven't even touched my scrap bins!

This quilt finished at approximately 78" x 87".  I backed it with some awesome flannel fabric.  I have used this flannel for PJs a few years ago and bought another piece of it a couple of years ago at Joann's Fabric.  What can I say, other than I love flannel backed quilts.  They were my most requested backings on the baby/kids quilts.

I used the one remaining block for the label.  Don't know why I named the quilt "Pieces of Time" other than the pieces used were from projects over the past couple of years or so.

Good way to use my not so favorite color (orange)

You can see the fun fabrics here: Dinosaurs, Monkey, Paisley, etc.
You can see that I tried to use up more of the 2 1/2 squares in the border!

This quilt was made using this one block.  It is how you set them in the rows that changes the look of the quilt.  I liked this setting the best.

Oh yes, This is what I still have left of the box & bag.  What's a girl to do?

Hope this year is fabulous for you and that you enjoy every single minute of it.
