17ufosin2017 January update

Yikes, we've tipped over into February already but here's my January update. Meredithe & Anne's challenge has really worked for me so far and I have three finishes from my list😊😊😊
1. The [Travel] Comfort Quilt - most of the fabrics in this quilt are from my travels in Japan and New Zealand. This quilt was designed by Leanne Beasley and the pattern is in her Vignette #3 magazine. It's lovely to have it on our bed during the summer months.

The little EPP tumbler blocks on the label were left over from a sewing box that I made, all these fabrics are in the quilt.

9. Sew Laugh Love - another Leanne Beasley design.

I really like the way the applique squares and triangles from the border fabrics blend in and don't you love the vintage buttons that I inherited from a friend?

15. Boro coasters - these were started in a BeBe Bold class.

I have also FINALLY finished all of the blocks for the Chester County Criswell Quilt - yay! As you know I have subsituted some different blocks into this quilt, the pineapple block below was designed by Elly Sienkiewicz

 I drew a pomegranate block from a picture I saw on one of Barbara Brackman's blog posts.

So I have finished all the blocks but now I'm struggling with the layout, anyway hope to have it sorted soon.

And I have made a block for the retro quilt from Sharon's blog.
Bow tie block
I have also been doing a lot of hand sewing of the first pathways for the Value Proposition Quilt, the done pile has now out grown the unfinished pile.

Thank you for all the encouragement I received about my list. This challenge has really motivated me and it's not too late to join in the fun.
