Happy New Year!

Well, we are getting back to normal here after the Christmas and the New Year holidays.

I managed to squeeze in some stitching, but first let me tell you that Lori is having a quilt-along over at her site. It is a Dolly Quilt called Cheddar  and Crackers. It is based on an antique quilt which I loved, that she had as her header sometime last year. I figured that I would join in as 1)I have never done a Quilt-along and, 2) I have never made a Dolly Quilt. So two new things for me in 2010! This is how far along I am  with it:

I think I have a chance of completing this as it is little, but I must now get out my design board so I can plan my layout.

One of the quilts that I put together (I had started it earlier in 2009),over the holiday was this Star Quilt.

I really liked the idea of grouping the four stars together as a block, and then adding wide sashing. I like  the top, but I think if I do another in this setting, I will use wider sashing to separate the four star blocks. I was not quite brave enough this time! I have also sewn all of the Ninepatch Pinwheels together now, but then got distracted by a hexagon top:

This is a follow on from my Hexagon themed tops I am making. (Yes, the Kaliedoscope Hexagons, are all complete, and some are sewn into rows already!)

So I don’t feel that I have left 2009 with too many incomplete quilts…. I have finished almost as many as I have started for 2010!

    Your first doll quilt block looks great! I couldn’t resist making it too – for similar reasons to your 1 & 2. I can’t wait for her to post the next installment. :0)
