So that's going to be my 2011 goal. Even though I'm already one month behind! Although I did finish two tops last month that still need to be quilted. I want to free-motion at least one of them, but I need to practice more before I try and actual quilt. :)
So last night I made a little scrap quilt sandwich and did some free-motion learning. It wasn't bad, but still needs work. I think I'll do one of these little scraps every time I sit down to sew, and hopefully I'll get better!
Then I got started on my February project. Since I was inspired by Jennifer, I thought her Quilt Along sounded like the perfect quilt to start with. I bought the fabrics months ago, when she was actually doing the quilt along, but never even got started.Please forgive my horrible cell phone picture, but it was the best I could get at midnight last night. ;)
I'm using a Fandango charm pack, with some Kona solids. I like to make some sample blocks before I cut all the fabrics, just in case I see something I want to change. I'm very happy with how my samples came out last night, and I can't wait to work on this one some more!
