Pat Sloan's BOM-Vacation Time

Pat Sloan's 2015 BOM, Vacation Time, has begun.  Here are the fabrics I chose for this quilt.  The large print on the right is border fabric and hopefully the backing.

The first block is named Down by the Boardwalk. The red came out a little too bright in the block picture.  A truer color is in the fabrics picture above. This is a 12.5" block. Pretty block!!

January Little Quilt

I've been working a few things in 2015.  One is a NYE Mystery that I began and put aside to do a Little Quilt.  Connecting Threads' Quilt With Us forum is doing a Little Quilt Series.  I'll do most of these more than likely.  I made mine larger than their 15.5" x 17.5" January quilt... as you can see, I made it into another fireplace cover.  Some I will make little, tho.

I did more quilting than needed, but it was good practice.

I've decided to restrain myself this year with quilt alongs.  I'm doing the Pat Sloan new quilt along, Vacation, and this Little Quilt Series.  I'm hoping to get quilted the tops I've made the past couple years or so.

Keep on Stitchin'!!
