Challenge for Myself in 2010




This year, I decided to challenge myself and bought a book at the Half Price bookstore called "Bundles of Fun" by Karen Snyder that features quilts made from Fat Quarters. Since I have so many FQs, I decided to start at the first quilt and work my way to the end of the book (kind of like Julie in "Julie and Julia!!!!") The quilts will all go to Project Linus. Here is a picture of the first quilt top. Just simple 6.5" squares. I'm having to resize the patterns so this may prove to be very interesting! But I figured I'd just make less squares---what could be easier??!! (We'll see!!!) So the first quilt top is called "The Horses" Lots of horses in this one ---some little boy or girl should enjoy it!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!
