My sewing goals for 2011 are to get some UFOs done. I have an art quilt to finish and I have 3 traditional quilts, 2 applique projects and a lap quilt for my Dad to do. When I stop to think about it I guess what I really need to do in 2011 is schedule quilting time, that is the only way it is going to get done. Happy 2011!

Ok Paula...sorry to heap another project onto your pile, but you win a pattern from the shop! Congrats and hope you love it.
Is there any interest in a quilt-along for this pattern? If so, let me know in the comments section and be sure to include the size you're interested in. This quilt is super easy...just a few half square triangles but otherwise a whole cloth quilt. Super beginner friendly, super easy...and yet it is the quilt that has received more compliments from others of all the ones I have made. Happiness is a warm quilt! You don't have to do yellow, either. Erik's cousin Michelle blogs at Life Sews On (don't you love that name) and she made one with multi zigzags and various colors of charlie brown shirts through the years for her factoid loving brother. Some colors are blue, orange, yellow, red, green...but whatever the recipient likes will work. Of course let me put out the legal disclaimer that this not officially licensed related to United Features Syndicate, blah blah blah (insert trumpet blurbs since I am talking like a grown up). This quilt is just easy and fun. I made a cute button on the sidebar...feel free to grab it for your blog if you want to, whether or not you are interested in participating. .
Life On The Farm. She arranged many of the like crackers together to get an X. I like that she made it her own. I thought that would also be a really cute way to do an X's and O's quilt and then a reader sent me a pic of how she did just that!
Go visit Jo to see the cracker quilt made in Pure. It is awesome, too!
I love seeing all the variations. If I got EQ7 it would be the end of me!
