Out with the Old, On with New Age

Happy New Year, everyone!  So far, it's been quiet and very cold here in southeastern Pennsylvania.  We had a nice Thanksgiving with my son in (much warmer) Los Angeles, and a great Christmas at home with two of our children.  I hope all of you had wonderful holidays also

On January 1, I emptied my ort jar.  It's always fun to see the layers of threads.  Those blue and green threads are from Needle Delights Starstruck.  The red is from a needlepoint canvas of a ladybug that I didn't quite get finished in 2017.  The threads at the top are probably all from Brenda Keyes' Sampler Houses. Pictures of these projects will appear in future posts.

My OMG (One Monthly Goal) in quilting is to finish New Age, a block-of-the-month quilt from 2016.  I kept up with making the blocks on schedule and then didn't follow through with the setting.  Here's where the project is as of this afternoon.

I need to sew together the other six blocks, and also piece and attach the borders.  The borders are made of half-square triangles using all the colors in the quilt.  Fortunately, the directions are in color as there are so many potential ways to make a mistake in the order of the blocks.  

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the January One Monthly Goal.  Here's to a great year of stitching!


  1. Your New Age quilt top is looking good -- pretty blocks and pretty fabrics. Wishing you a new year filled with much stitching and sewing.
