New Year, New Project

It's January 1st.  Time to make resolutions!

This year I'm planning a sampler quilt of improv blocks.  Every week I'll make 1 or 2 block and by the end of the year I should have a finished project.  At least that's the goal.  Read more about my BHAG here.

Here are my fabrics.  I love, Love, LOVE them.

There's a little bit of everything in this set.  My favorite was found on the sale shelf (of course).  It's a mustard colored Cotton & Steel spider web print with little silver spiders.  I can't wait to see where those spiders pop up.

I have a plan but since this is improv I expect it to change as I progress.  So I'm not going to share my overall design.  Instead, each week I'll share a few finished blocks.  I'll reveal the completed quilt at the end of the year.  It's going to be fun!

Do you have a big project planned for 2016?
