A New Year, A New Quilt

Hapy New Year!  I haven't blogged since November 16th!  A lot has happened in those two months, but it's too much to talk about here.  I had a lovely Thanksgiving, and Christmas, and a fun New Year's Eve Celebration with our traditional New Year's Day (Good Luck Dinner).  A friend from a previous lifetime contacted me via Facebook, and asked me if I would make her daughter a quilt.  Pink and purple are her favorite colors.  I've been having a hard time getting down to my sewing room,  and when I do manage to sew it's not long before I need a break.  But tonight I'm happy to report that I got the top finished!
I Spy in Pink, and Purple

This turned out bigger than I thought I was going to make, but I really like the way it did turn out.

I Spy before white sashing added

This is what it started out as, but it just needed something.  I had thought about turning the blocks into snowball blocks, but I'm glad I didn't go with that.  What's left of all the fabric's I purchased for this quilt are going on the back.  I'm trying to use and reduce my stash as much as I can this year.  Wish me luck with that.  Tomorrow is a new day, and I hope to get the back pieced, and get this baby pinned.  Wish me luck on that one too!

Happy piecing, happy sewing.
