Up next

Now that I've finished the Christmas quilts and the comfort quilts, I couldn't resist pulling fabrics for a new project!  I decided to jump ahead to February with pinks and reds.  It's another inspiration from Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine called Lincoln's Platform.  Hmm, since Abraham Lincoln's birthday is in February as well as Valentine's Day, it'll be a multipurpose quilt, right? :)  Realistically, I won't get much done on it until after the holidays, but I was just itching to dig in those stash tubs today.

I'm also stewing about the little house project.  If I'm going to do the 366 block-a-day version, I need to decide pretty soon.  They'd have to be small blocks -- not much bigger than 3 or 4 inches -- to all fit in one quilt.  Or I could just make *some* houses ...


1.  Flannel sheets
2.  Tamales for supper -- it's the first day of Las Posadas in Mexico and here in California (haha, we celebrate everything!)
3.  My buddies in the sewing room
