A tisket, a tasket...

... 12 Months of Baskets is a block of the month project that I decided to make this year. This BOM is offered free from Bunny Hill Designs. You can join in on this project by clicking the image in my right sidebar. Below is my completed January Block #1. The pattern also calls for button embellishments, but I will add those after the quilting is completed at the end of the project.

Coloring Book Therapy

I found these neat coloring books at Michael's yesterday in the $1.00 bin! I have heard that coloring is one of the best forms of relaxation (besides quilting, of course), that I just could not resist buying these fun quilt themed books. Maybe they will spark some creative ideas for some quilt projects in the new year.
