A New Month!! Yeah for February!

2017 started with a few bumps in our house.  I was sick and out of it for about 3 weeks, a few car and house problems and then having to say goodbye to our beloved 14 year old Vizsla and this blogs namesake, Cocoa.

So I am excited to restart 2017 today, February 1.

I started Totally Triangle QAL and have been working on many of the blocks,  I went ahead an made several of the blocks ahead of the planned date.  Just in case there are other bumps in the road, I will still be on time with my blocks.

So here they are so far.

You can join in over at Mystery Quilter   It has been fun and a learning experience for me.  These are really my first “official” blocks made.

Then I really wanted to do some mindless quilting, so I took out a layer cake and jolly bar pack in Behind the Scenes by Jen Kingwell.

I ended up with a layer cake and a jolly bar pack, because I liked the fabric and didn’t remember that I already had some.  Oh well, the more the merrier.

So I took my layer cake and cut in half to make 5″ x 10″ pieces.  Combined with my jolly bar pack I now had 126  5″ x 10″ pieces.

Then I split them up into two groups, the darker and the lighter pieces.

The plan today is to finish the top.  Piece a back and make a sandwich.

Here is to my restart of the New Year.
