Dear Quilting Friends,
Happy New Year! Do you have a new year’s resolution? I am determined to not spend the winter months cooped up inside. Last year Dan bought himself a heated jacket and loved it ~ he walked just about every day no matter what the temperature was! This year I got myself one! The best invention ever! You don’t really feel “heat” with it on, you just aren’t cold. So, I have been outside walking too ~ so much better than the treadmill ~ and we were recently able to enjoy this absolutely gorgeous sunset over Rangeley Lake.
UNDER MY NEEDLE
I finished up Michelle Hiatt’s BE DAZZLED quilt and shipped it off to her right before Christmas then immediately loaded Dan’s ORDER IN CHAOS quilt on the frame and have pretty much been working on that non stop. Quilting inspiration for this one came from one of the grandkids coloring books ~ medallions! Lots and lots of medallions, haven’t actually counted yet but somewhere around 150 of them in various sizes. Did I say lots? My brain hurts from trying to come up with different patterns in each medallion ~ there are a few repeats but not many. I finished the medallions yesterday so am now filling the negative space with pebbles and swirlys. We are hoping this quilt will be hanging at the MQX Quilt Festival in April.

Dan reflects on his 2018 quilting path.
I am looking forward to some stitching time with my friends Wendy, Karon and Doris at the end of the month during our annual Girl’s Weekend. Can’t wait!
Wishing you health and happiness, with lots of quilting time for 2019!
