My top WIP at this moment is also one of my January NewFO's.
This is a fun project - I've wanted to do something truly scrappy for quite a while, but haven't had the right opportunity as I'm most focused on UFOs and NETYs. A quilt for Christi fit the ticket perfectly. Just about every piece on this quilt came out of my big scrap bin. I just needed to cut into a fat quarter for a little more white. I'm extremely happy with how well it turned out. Spent an hour rearranging blocks so that no two of the same whites or blues lay against each other.
The crazy pop of the Hello Kitty fabric is intentional. Christi is crazy for all things Hello Kitty or Marilyn Monroe, so when I saw this fat quarter, it was mine (well, hers). ;D That's the only thing about this quilt that's not straight from stash.
And Christi HATES the cold, so even though she lives in north Florida, she's getting a luscious minky backing.
Speaking of NewFOs, January was a prolific month! In addition to Run, Kitty, Run!, I started (and finished and shipped) Patrick's Houndstooth Blues.
And I've got some little Valentines secrets in progress. Nothing much, really - just fun cuteness for my hubby and girls to cheer their work spaces.
So January saw SEVEN NewFO's born, one of which is already gifted, 5 of which will be finished and gifted on Friday, and the last will be finished before February ends, hopefully. The quilting on it is a tad ambitious. I have Christi completely stymied as to why I needed her to fax me an image of the bottom of her favorite running shoes. . .
Oh! And hopefully Scott won't mind spray-adhesing batting onto these foam pieces for me this weekend. Want to get some design boards up!
