I seriously spent the majority of the day trying to figure out where to start for this year. I finally decided rather than starting something just to be starting it, I'm going to keep looking for what I really want to work on and keep laying all those blocks out looking for a good way to put some together.
I wanted to participate in the Schnibble's parade again and had looked at the Morsel pattern more than a few times. What I ended up doing is using the techniques, but none of the measurements used in the pattern. I had a few honey bun strips left over from a project I had done a few years ago and I thought they would make a perfect Morsel. I quilted it, added my ribbon and stuffed it. I realized in the photo the green strip in the middle actually looks like a decorator fabric, but it isn't, it is just the pattern on the fabric. I am going to leave this by my stitching spot so I can put my pins in it rather than the couch.
Here it is with the journal cover I made a few years back. I think I should actually start using the journal too, maybe using it to draw out quilt layouts for all those blocks. ;)
And then because old habits die hard I had to make a block. I only need to make 39 more of these for a quilt (there are also 40 applique blocks in the quilt). They sew together so quickly that I almost made two...and at one a night, they will all be finished by the middle of February. Each block is made out of different fabrics so no two will be the same. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
