I choose my kick off project to be a couple of quilt tops for the Stash Builders - Heartbuilders project. Please click on the link to find out about this great organization.
They supply fabric for the quilt top and you can use just what is supplied or add to it as you choose. I ended up adding to the fabrics and was able to make 2 tops.
I seem to have a new addiction to tumbler blocks. I love them and this top came together over the course of a weekend. I'm actually working on another tumbler project that I can't show until couple of months from now since they will be part of a swap.
The red fabrics are both heart patterns. Not my normal go to choice. A friend suggested bow ties and I found that they weren't a bad place to start. I ended up with enough left over fabric to do the tumblers with some additional fabric from the stash.
I have also made a decision on my Quilt 365 project. I started the project on Jan 1 and was gung ho for the first 3 - 4 months. Daily most of the time and then around mid April it became a job instead of relaxing. I took the bag of blocks out this weekend and did a couple and decided that I will bring the count up to 180 and then stop. I need to do an official count but I know I'm over 100, my best guess is about 125.
I realized that I do some kind of crafting every day. I have a project journal where I keep track of what I want to do and what I have accomplished on a daily basis. Most days more than one type of crafting. Some of the projects I am currently doing include knitting, crocheting, stitching, card making and mostly quilting.
