projects for the new year

Hello all, Mary Ellen here.

Of late I’ve been working on Gudrun Erla’s Two Timer quilts from her latest book. Easy piecing! Mine is going to be scrappy-which does increase the cutting time a bit but I think it’s going to be a fun look. I’m trying out her third Stripology ruler to see how I like it. So far, so good.

If you’re taking part in the bucket list challenge (go back a post or two), the first prize drawing will be happening at our guild meeting this week. You can comment on any of the posts from the introductory post up until this one to get your name entered in the drawing. If you’ve already commented, feel free to comment again–particularly if you’ve checked off another thing on the bucket list.

Hoping to see you Thursday at the meeting-morning time slot remember! Starts at 10:00 a.m.

    Hi Mary Ellen, I have been reading your blog, but haven’t had time this past Nov. and Dec. Thank you for hanging in and continuing to do this. It is a lot of work but much appreciated. I have enjoyed the hints and patterns in the past. I just went through the Bucket list Challenge, and found I have been doing quite a few of them these last couple of weeks. I accomplished: #3 – for one project, 6 – I will – on Thursday, 14 – I will in a week because we are traveling to Florida by auto train and I always take hand work with me, 15 – I just spent Monday with a group of ladies from another guild who meet to work on quilt projects, 19 – I labeled two quilts – one this weekend and one last week, 29 – I just put away Christmas quilts and brought out winter quilts, 39 – I posted a quilt on Facebook last week. 47 – I am working right now on re-designing a vintage quilt for a class I’m teaching, So, thank you for making me take stock. I will continue to work on the Bucket List. Happy New Year!

    I have done a few things on my Bucket List, but hope to do better. I will be at the meeting on Thursday.
