The Library Project
Right, except I want to link up with Adrienne at Chezzetcooks because she has a great idea. Pull out all the craft books and magazines you've been hoarding and not used and pick at least 4 projects to make. I have a few craft books I've bought, lovingly thumbed through and put back on the shelf. I've not made any projects from them. They have been a great source of inspiration but I think it's time they were used as intended. Of course this means not all of 6 quilts will get done by March (that was very unlikely anyway!) as I'm adding a few items, the bare minimum 4. They don't have to be finished until the end of the year but progress is expected every month on at least 1. There will be a link up on the 3rd Friday of every month.
In for a penny, in for a pound so here goes:
Make a bag from charm squares, either this one from Creative Quilting or this one from Lynnette Anderson's It's Quilting Cats and Dogs.
I bought this beautiful book last year and there are a few projects in here I'd love to do but picking one I have to pick this pieced star. I'd like to make it slightly smaller from some charm squares I have on hand for a baby quilt rather than a throw from yardage. I think this mini sized would be really cool!
Finally number 4 is a mini quilt like this one from Scrap Happy Quilting or maybe change it up , same idea in the shape of a Basset Hound maybe?
