|My Little Pumpkin with her first pumpkin posed photo!|
I was so excited when I first saw the 100 Day hustle, but once again I missed the part where I was supposed to sign up to link. Oh well, there are 81 days left in the year so I have really pushed to get my pile of projects completed. I love the idea of starting the new year out with a clean slate. I am planning to do some purging the week between Christmas & New Year's Day. I am also planning on putting together a whole new set of project packs. I find all the projects I want to work on, "shop" my stash, bag it and then put it on my calendar. The calendar is the new part of my plan this year. I like making a copy of the directions or sketching (if I came up with it) so that I don't mess up the original, especially if it came from a magazine. Sometimes I will make "precut" pieces like charms or strips ahead of time; sometimes it is easier to cut a bunch of things at once. If I end up getting all my projects completed soon then I will start my project packs sooner this year.
Double-Pinwheel Quilt (What should I call it?):
This double-pinwheel quilt was one of my project packs from the past. The sashing, border and backing fabric came later. Now that I have this block figured out I can plan better for the next time I used this design again in later quilts. As I shared on Monday's Post (HERE), Ziona really loves this quilt so I might use this pattern as the basis for her quilt. I am planning to use Yellows, gray, black, & white for her colors. What do you think of that? Any other suggestions of a 4-color pattern I could use?

From the R,W, & B blog Hop a couple months ago. I finally got it completed with a quilted star top stitching, a dark navy polka-dot print for the back, and a marbled gold for the binding. I also put a hanging sleeve on the back.

I am so excited that I won the traveling Stash box! I will post pictures once I have received it and I will post a giveaway next week to choose the next winner of the box! You also can check out Sewingly Along for the Master list of the 8 traveling boxes!
