New year, new project.....

Happy New Year! I hope all your dreams come true in 2023!!

Of course I spent the first day of the new year in my sewing room starting a new project!  It is a small scrap quilt made using some of the batik scraps from my Metro Tiles Quilt that I recently finished as well as some other fabrics from my scrap box.

The pattern I followed is a video tutorial by Linda Kemshall of Design Matters TV and is called Strippy Scrappy you can see Linda's finished quilt and see how she quilted it here.

I have managed to cut and finish piecing my quilt top and have even started some of the quilting but still have more quilting and some appliqué to finish.

Looking forward to spending some more time in my sewing room again tomorrow! I am starting the year as I mean to continue.... with lots of stitching!!

Until next time.... 😊

  2. Looks like you will have another beautiful finish very soon. Happy New Year.

  3. Wow! Your quilt is looking beautiful. Happy New Year! I hope you achieve everything you wish to this year. Lol, I am still completing UFOs this year.

  4. I always love scrappy quilts the best - mainly because they remind me of my grandmothers who were both quilters. It will be fun to see your project evolve.
    Happy New Year!
