So I am passing on these ideas to my blog readers, just in case you are looking for something wonderful to inspire you as you start off 2017.
Barbara Brackman is running a new BOM in 2017 called Yankee Diary which is based on a quilt from 1867.
Barbara's projects always include inspiring history lessons. This BOM doesn't start until the end of January, which gives you lots of time to finish the other wonderful BOMs you have made with Barbara. I'm not starting this one until I finish my Grandmother's Choice: Votes for Women.
How about a new embroidery project?!?
Sara Barnes is creating "1 year of stitches" and you can read an interesting interview by the creator of the project here. In the description of the guidelines it says "This is a personal project, so you do you"... I love that! Do it your own unique way, take at least one stitch every day, and make your mark in 2017! Who am I kidding? I'm probably going to do this.
How about a semi mystery project with Sarah Fielke?
She is offering a BOM that includes all kinds of techniques, but you won't really know what the quilt will look like until the end of the year. You can personalize the details (ie. applique rabbits or cats or flowers) in your version of Down the Rabbit Hole.
Pat Sloan is hosting a mystery quilt called 2017 Children's Library. This will be a 10 block quilt with "controlled scrappy" fabric choices. It sounds perfect for me!
Do you know of other new quilting projects that are starting in the new year? Leave the info in the comment section and I'll add them to the list.
