17 for 2017 in January....

I think I am going to concentrate on finishing the scrapbook quilt that is a top and waiting to be quilted. I made this fun quilt a few years ago to test out a pattern by Joanne over at  I chose to use my blue and green scraps and then made that fun border in blue. Excuse the Christmas mess, that last tree should come down tonight.

 I really like how this one turned out and it would work well with any 10 inch block. I can't wait for the weekend when I can get this pinned for quilting... hopefully starting on Sunday while the kiddo's are with Grandma.

I'll also be moving along my 1857 Album quilt blocks. I had stalled on this project the last few months but with a couple of quick block finishes already this year I hope to get a few more tackled this month. I have 2 more prepped and 4 border ones and cut the fabrics needed for back basting.

There.. it is in writing so let's see how well I do! Check back at the end of the month for a progress post.


  1. I really like the borders on both the blocks and the quilt.

  2. Your quilt top looks fantastic - these borders are wonderful!

  3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that scrappy quilt. Definitely have enough scraps for it here. LOL! I'm heading over to find the pattern! Thanks for the new project idea...I think! hahahahahaha

  4. This is a gorgeous quilt top ; happy basting this weekend!

    Same thing here....putting one together!
