January 2014 - month in review

February already.  My oh my how time flies!!

My word for the year is 'DO'.  I decided that I needed to 'do' something about my growing pile of scraps, make something from my pile of orphan blocks, use up the stash I already have and to work on my pile of works-in-progess!  So, looking at my January makes, I did pretty well! 
 

Yes - I finally completed a quilt I started 2 years ago!  It's done people - done!  The Mod Sampler is done!  I washed and tumble dried it last night and it looks nice all scrinkly.  In January I even made some pouches with orphan blocks, used scraps to make some tea wallets, a fern frond and a mini quilt and used some fabric in my stash to make a basket, a cushion cover and some bee blocks.  Woohoo!

My favourite project from January is the mini quilt I made for Doll Quilt Swap #14:


I love all the quilted texture I added, including some hand stitching, and the scrappy goodness and low volumes.  This was a lot of fun to make.

And now we are in February - what will I sew this month!!??  Oh and I forgot to celebrate my 2-year Blogiversary so that will happen VERY SOON - stay tuned for a giveaway!

Linking to Fresh Sewing Day.
