Happy New Year 2014

I can't believe that the New Year is rapidly approaching again.   Why is it that we think a new year deserves many changes?  I'm guilty of it as well.  I think that everything will change and I'll get my act together the minute the clock strikes midnight :-).

This year, I have many repeat goals I'd like to see take place.  These are nice to haves.  Like publish at least one posting a week on the blog.  Finish up some of these UFO's I have sitting around.  Streamline some of these craft supplies that I have and of course, lose some weight. But, these are the standar yearly standard goals.  However, I do have one resolution this year.  Help others more. Step in where unexpected.  Lift Up those who may be down.  Whether it may be family, friends or strangers, many people can benefit from the kindness of others. 

Wishing you and your family a safe and prosperous New 2014 Year!

Moda Flurry Presents wrapped

Well, looks like I'm going to have to finish up my Moda Flurry quilt for next Christmas.  That's OK, I'll have more time to enjoy it next year.  Things have been hectic traveling to visit with family and trying to finish the shopping rush.  Still not completed yet :-)

So, I'll probably iron out the present blocks I finished and pack away the precut fabric that's ready to finish the quilt.  I thought I would share the presents completed. 

Here's hoping you and your family have a great Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Thanks for stopping by! ~*~Trish~*~

Moda Flurry Christmas Present Quilt by Kate Spain

Nothing like waiting until the last minute to want to complete a Christmas Quilt.  As I was surfing the Internet, I came across different versions of the Flurry Christmas present quilt and just fell in love with it.  I also found the free pattern online here.  Below is what the quilt looks on their site.

One difference is that I will be completing it using some older fabric I had in my stash.  So, I'll be making my quilt top in basic grey fruitcake fabric layer cake I previously purchased from Moda.  I'm busy cutting out all the pieces.  It's the border I think that will take the most time!
