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



  1. Great house blocks. I am looking forward to seeing more

  2. Beautiful winter house blocks Ada!!! Cannot wait to see the rest of them!!! Do show what you received in the same month also, it would be very interesting!! will do the same to my blog too!! <3 have a great day!!

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