Some new starts

 Happy Friday!  I have started a couple new projects.  I think it is fun to start new things...after all, if we don't start new things, we never finish anything...right? And...it keeps quilting fun and sparkly! I still have plenty of UFO's to finish, and I will, all in due time.  These are five inch finished Baltimore Album blocks.  They are by Keryn Emmerson, from her pattern first published in 1996.  You can find the pattern here.  I have them ready to applique,
 and will stitch on them in the evenings, while dear husband is watching the news.
 I hand quilted and bound the little candle mat, made from the leftover fabrics from the mystery quilt.  It is the wrong season, but I could not help sitting my autumn candle on it, just to see how it would look.
 And a new row quilt!  I have loved row quilts, but never finished one to completion. You can find this fun, free pattern here!
And the whole row...still need some smiles on those snowmen!!!

And Rosie...she is such a little lovely dog.  So glad she is in our lives!!!



Have a great weekend,

Julie

I've gotta check out the row quilt site, love your snowmen... and those teeny tiny Baltimore blocks... oh, my! I have wanted to do something small like that too. You inspire me!

I love to start new projects too! Of course, finishing UFOs is great. I have a row quilt that I started at least 10 years ago and it is finally basted and ready to quilt. Don't know when I will do the quilting. One of these days I will get the urge to finish it.

Your applique blocks are beautiful! I also love that you are quilting along in the Quilt Doodle BOM.

Happy Quilting,
Cindy

Your flowers are GORGEOUS and I do love those snowmen...even without their faces. (And use that candle mat whenever you want...who cares if it's not the "right" season?)
