Time flies.................

Happy New Year!!

What's a New Year without a new project? I wouldn't know. LOL I started this BOM with a group of friends last week. This is Block #1 of Lovebird Lane. I hope we can all get together soon for Block 2, this was a lot of fun.
In the last few weeks I managed to finish 3 more "Berry Picking Party" blocks. I am now working on the last one! I hope to start the piecing soon.


This is my "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" as of December 31st. I made 5 additional blocks since then. Joy and I decided to do 5 blocks a month instead of 10 so that we could start "Farmer's Wife" soon. :)
Here are all the blocks.........










I listed all of the projects I am going to work on in 2011. My goal is to finish 10 of those before I add anything else to the list. Of course I added many things to the list so that I won't be bored. LOL!

Again, I hope everyone has a Happy Healthy New Year with plenty of time to stitch.

You have been busy! I love the Lovebird Lane and can't wait to see more. Too cute! Oh and the stitcheries are just adorable. Happy New Year to you also.

I love your new block! I can tell it's going to be a beautiful quilt! I can't wait to see the Berry Picking quilt all together!! You've made a lot of progress on Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I think 5 blocks will be perfect if you want to start a new BOM. Busy Bee!!!

You are tempting me with the SBS blocks. I just love them, they are so fresh looking.

The Berry Picking blocks are so sweet and your work is impeccable...I'm excited to see the quilt together.

A new bom??? Oh I just can't imagine you starting something new..lol I've been trying not to, but I may fail! Oh well!

Wow, you've been super busy! It's nice to 'see' you - hope your holidays were wonderful.

CJ said...

Doesn't starting something new signify a new start for a new year?? :)

It looks like you're going to have a fun year. What colours are you going to do for Farmer's Wife?

I *finally* got the Life is Beautiful pattern, so that's my new start for the new year. :)

I agree with Cindy, you have been busy!! I have the first block done in the Lovebird Lane, but need to add the applique part - it's nice to see someone else working on the same BOM - you've inspired me to pick it back up!

Love your Sylvia's blocks!! The blues are gorgeous!

Oh my word, Yvette, when you post, YOU post. What a fun series of blocks!!

Between driving to and home from work, working, cleaning and helping your Mom, when do you find the time?

Just love your sampler blocks. A lovely new project for the new year too!
I am holding off starting a new quilt project till I have quilted at least one top. Can't say how long I will be good for. lol
Your embroideries are just gorgeous.

Joy said...

I checked Sunday night and thought you skipped a week on the posting! Wow, your Sylvias are awesome. I love it, and you've got me revved to catch up now! Lovebird Lane is FUN - can't wait for the next one!

You have your work cut out for you this year, my friend, but I know you're up to the challenge! Happy New Year!

The berry picking blocks are so great. I can't wait to start on mine. What color fabric are you using for the background? It is hard to tell from the photos.
All your blue and yellow blocks are fabulous.
Happy New Year to you.

Lynda said...

I love your birdhouse block and the SBS blocks look so wonderful.

Deb said...

You really get so much done! I'm green with envy. Love your Berry Picking blocks quite a bit. And I definitely wouldn't know what it was like not to have a New Year's start! LOL Yours looks like to much fun so far. And I'm really in love with SBQ so much. I can't wait to start mine!

Comfort Cove Designs said...

The Bridal Party Sampler is just GORGEOUS!!! What a great idea!

I also love the "Berry Picking" BOM! Could you please send me an email to let me know where to get this pattern??? I'm looking to do a little embroidery work. Its an easy thing to pick up and put down with an 8 month old around the floor!

Quiltingly Yours
