Last Post of 2015

I finished assembling all six quilt tops this week.  Guess I know how I'll be starting out 2016 - quilting!

Cheers!  And Happy New Year!

Tasting Table Tuesday - New Quilts for a New Year

I am spending a quiet afternoon at my sewing machine today, as we prepare for a bought of winter weather - finally!  Our family was here for a late Christmas celebration over the weekend and they left this morning.  Now the house seems strangely quiet.  A good day to get some sewing done while I remember how wonderful the last few days have been.  There is something magical about having young children here for the holidays - or anytime, for that matter!

As I look forward to 2016, I plan to make some changes to my Etsy Shop, and focus on making more of what I love - small quilts.  So this is my start at making some new, fresh, quilts.  I started these blocks at a quilting retreat this fall, and just finished the last of them now.
Enough to make six baby quilts.

Each quilt pairs White Kona Cotton with a Color in a checkerboard fashion.

There's a Coral & Gray one...

and a Green one... 

a Purple one... 

and an Aqua one... 

a Blue one... 

and the last is a mix of them all. 

All will be listed in my Etsy Shop, Cotton Cellar as soon as they're done.

Here's hoping that you all have a Joyous New Year!
