Lots of Quilts, lots of projects

Well I hope everyone is having a great new year. I have been working on many projects. I just thought I would show fabrics and some works in progress.

Here is the list of things I am working on or thinking about working on:

Carolina Christmas- I found this mystery quilt online after all the clues were out. I really liked it but didn't want it quite so large. I shunk it to a lap quilt size and used a moda jelly roll I got for Christmas with some other fabrics mixed in. Here is the top so far.
No Sew Block swap - I thought this was a great idea. I joined both groups. I really enjoyed going through quilter's cache to find a 12" block. I can't believe how many quilt patterns are in quilter's cache.

Hazel Ilene Quilt Along - I came across this and thought it would be fun. I had a couple fabrics and purchased the two that I needed. I have done all the cutting so far.

Distant Pickle is having a fun quilt along. A simple 9 patch design called "disappearing 9 patch" I had a bunch of fun fabrics and have cut all these squares. I just read today that we are to sew the 9 patches. That will be tonights project.

The Quilt Ladies has a block of the month project she has a 3", 6" and 12" block for each month. I have chosen scraps for the 3" blocks and am searching for fabrics for the other sizes. This may just be a fun way to learn new blocks each month. I completed the 3" block. It was fun working that small.

Cheddar cheese doll quilt - this is a quilt along. The pattern looks really interesting. I have not sewn this one yet. I want to get a better fabric for the Cheddar cheese :).

Quilted Hen has a Raid the Stash block of the week project. I would really like to do this but I just don't like any of the fabric combinations I have chosen for this project yet.

Amy's Passion has a 3 blocks a month project. In the end we will have 12 blocks and it quilted and bound by Christmas 2010 (If we keep to the schedule). This sounds promising. I have pulled fabrics and just need one more to make the project complete.

Very Pretty! Thank you for the quilt-a-long links. I added them to the BOM and quilt-a-long post. So fun to find new ideas to share.

What a great list to work from! They all sound interesting. I'll be watching your blog, cause I'm in the Hazel's Diary quilt along too.

What a great idea... lap size Carolina Xmas - I had no idea what fabrics to use - now you have given me the idea of using the jelly rolls! I just happen to have one or two lurking in the sewing room!!

Thanks! and Happy Sewing!
