New for February

Now that I'm over the initial distraction of new granddaughter Rhiannon, I'm ready to start concentrating in my workroom again :)  I'm undertaking two new projects this month:

First up, Barbara Brackman has just kicked off her
2019 applique sew-along series,

This quilt will feature nine blocks plus
some border options.  
Barbara's version of Block 1:

So far I've pulled fabrics and started doing applique prep.  I've decided to go with more contemporary colors this time, instead of my usual 1800s repros.  Each of my nine blocks will have similar but unique fabric combos.  I'll be doing 'freezer paper and starch' turned edge hand applique for this project
