My goal for January was to make one hexagon quilt as you go a day. I decided to make one per day this year and coordinate it with the rainbow scrap challenge where you play with one color of scraps each month. January was pink so here are 31 pink hexagons! I am going to wait to put these together but will probably mix all the colors up at that point. February will be yellow, so I need to see if I can find 28 different yellows in the scrap bins and stash to play with. Linking up with the OMG Challenge for January. I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop in December and decided to reward myself with a bundle of butter churn basics from Kim Diehl. I have been looking at this bundle for a while and figured I needed neutrals and it was the perfect opportunity to pick it up. Service was fast and I love the new fabrics.

Slow Sunday and a completed OMG goal!
I also started a new block this week in pink - Erins Butterfly is the pattern from Grandmothers Scrap Bag book. Page 34.
I need to hand stitch that curve, then hand applique it to the background and add the body and some embroidered antennae.
I think I am done making the Endless Diamond blocks (those flowering snowballs are so much easier to hand piece!) so I will start hand piecing those 20 blocks together to make a quilt top here and there when I have time this week as well.
