Completed: 16
In Progress: 12....9 of which I do want to finish in 2012 ;-)
note...I'm dropping the tulip re-do, heart duvet quilting and lonestar projects going forward.

So what is new for 2012?

I've created quite a list from my piles in my stash, but will only add a few for now. Monday I talked about how I want to go about accomplishing this in amongst the real work of my business.

*1. Skill Builder Sampler {Sewn by Leila}-- I so wasn't going to do this one, but had a crazy idea, so now I want to and just got it started this week. Hoping to do one a week until I'm done.
2. Out of the Darkness - a Pam Bono design - I'll do one block a month and will likely report this on Monday's Design Wall/BOM's Away blog post. Major progress points, I'll include here.
3. Alaska Shop Hop "Trees" from 2007. - I'll do one block a month and will likely report this on Monday's Design Wall/BOM's Away blog post. Major progress points, I'll include here.
*4. McCall's Mystery - our 'Fearless Design' small group has decided to do this. It will be in three issues of the magazine. I got started a little early (see above), but also want to do a second version of fabrics.
5. Irish Hand Block (Céad Míle Fáilte) for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland -- Due Feb. 2 --are you doing one?
*6. Rose of Sharon Bird Block - this is my block that made it into Nine Patch Media's DVD from the Rose of Sharon Block Contest. I started a large version of this in 2010, so want to finish it up.
7. Peace Park -- can't wait to do this!!
*8. Snowflake/Blizzard - I won a few blocks in a block lotto several years ago. I have a rough design that I'd like to explore more and make this one. The block lottos of course are done ;-), but much more to do here! I even stole some in the past and used them in another quilt. HA!
9. 2007 Shop Hop the Blues - the first shop hop I did locally. I got the pattern from completing the shop hop and collected fabrics as I shopped. I want to get this collection of leftovers (once the quilt is pieced) back into my stash ;-)
10. 2009 Shop Hop the Blues - leaves, some applique some pieced, all blocks with pattern and material provided on the Shop Hop.
*started ;-)

2012 Stats
In Progress: 12
