New projects

Now that my last UFO's are nearing finished top stage I allowed myself to start a couple new projects. These are the latest mini quilts from Jan Patek. I signed up for her new mini quilt club late last year, promising myself that I'd keep up with the kits as they came. I got a bit behind after doing the first two kits, so am now doing a bit of catch up.

The Valentine quilt arrived at the end of January. I stuck it in a drawer at the time, bringing it out a couple days ago when I was almost finished with the Feathered Star appliqué blocks. It went together very quickly, and I'd have a finished top by now except for the fact that the kit was short one fabric. Glad I started it now while they still have the fabric!

I decided to start the Easter quilt that arrived a couple days ago while waiting for the little fabric package to arrive. This one will be VERY fast - simple appliqué with big pieces. It will be so much fun to have all these little quilts to decorate with next year!

The bunny is so cute. I am going to have to concentrate on getting some seasonal pieces done to decorate with.

Cute mini-quilts...the feathered star is just wonderful-love how the blocks repeat but the coloring is different and the mix of pieced and applique blocks...puts a whole new spin on "sampler quilt"

I am quite envious of the Easter block. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.
