Design Wall Monday, January 30, 2012

January 2012 is nearly a thing of the past.  Seems just days ago we were bringing in the New Year.  Okay enough...  I've got both UFOs for January done.  With days yet to spare...imagine that!


I got this one done today.  It is part of Jo's Country Junction Quilt Square Quilt Along for 2012.  Not really a UFO I suppose...but it will be if I don't finish each month.  Lori Smith designs these blocks.  Each pattern comes with six different 12" square designs.  For January we were to make the log cabin from her Quilt Squares #1 pattern.  I'll be linking in tomorrow along with finding out what's next month's assignment.  I plan to assemble all 12 blocks at the end of the year into a sampler. 

I also was able to finish Kindhearted Klues.  This one is from a workshop I took at Road to California last weekend.  Tracey Brookshier led 32 of us on through the night with Lakeside Mystery 1.  The binding will be more of the stripe that I used for the inner boarder.

Next up is Komplikated that happens to be a 2011 UFO that's been waiting its turn.  I have all the blocks done its just waiting for assembly.  Now that my January deadlines are complete this one is next.  Pictures of this project will be posted later this week.

Check out more fun projects through links on Patchwork Times.

I love the orange colors in your log cabin block. I can never get enough of it, but some people won't let it near their quilts. Two nice finishes!

Heart quilt is oh so cute.

Both projects are great. I really like the Junction one because of the little cornerstones that are diagonally positioned.

Oooh, love those oranges! You are right on with the Panetone color of the year :) The heart quilt is sweet too. Congrats on your keeping up and your finishes. Wish I could say the same!

I'm not an orange lover, but I like that Block. You are tempting me to click over to Jo's Blog again...I've already been once today. Good Luck keeping up with your BOM.

I love the colors in your block. I think I'm going to do each of my blocks in different color schemes. Yours reminds me of fall. Great job! ~Jeanne

You did it..... I love the log cabin block, have to have that pattern..... Sweet colors and I like the pinwheel in the center instead of the square. Good job.
