My first project of 2012 is (hopefully) going to be the Swoon quilt. Remember I bought the kit? I decided to join Katy's Swoon Along on I'm a Ginger Monkey to drum up some excitement.
My goal for this week is to start cutting fabrics. Not get all the fabric cut...there's no way that's going to happen now that I'm back at work...but I'd like to get a good start.
This is as far as I got tonight:
I took the bundle out and put it on my desk. Then I unwrapped the fabric and divided the fat quarters into twos. That's all.
I'm so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. I think tonight will be an early bedtime and I don't think I'll let a rotary cutter anywhere near me in this state.
Another project I'd like to begin is Anne's Scrappy Dresden Plate quilt over on Bunny Tales so I've joined the Scrappy Plate Club. This will be something new for me - hand appliqué - but I'm willing to give it a shot.
I think I'll start with these fat quarters I won from Quilt Dad, John, a while back.
I might not make the full-size quilt, but I'm looking forward to learning a new technique.
I'll keep you posted on how things are going when I actually get started...but right now I need a nap. Zzzzzz.
