Big plans

Like every year I have great plans for this one! There are a lot of unfinished projects in my craft room, and it is time to do something about it. I am thinking of joining a FAL (Finish Along) group. That might motivate me and push me a bit, because I need to pushed !!!!
Last year I participated in a Quilt Along from the Hellenic Quilter Guild. We made 3 house blocks a month. The time to start making the house quilt has come, but I am not ready yet!!
As I am allowed now to show the blocks I made for others I'll start with that. 


A few winter ones. These ones are appliqued and quilted by hand


And like a good Dutch girl, the skating scene couldn't be left out 

 
I wish you all a very happy and creative 2016

That is a nice idea. Every month a blog about the received blocks and the ones we made ourselves.
