The Library Project

 Adrienne from Chezzetcook Quilts has started The Library Project (click on the button to learn more about it if you would like to participate).  I have some projects chosen that I would love to finish before the end of 2014!  First up, a twin size version of the quilt named Sweets below from Allison Harris's book Growing up Modern.









Next will be another twin size quilt from the book Simply Retro.  This pattern is a square quilt but I'll have to adjust it slightly to make it a twin size.




This pattern is one that I won from Quiltstory.  It is just so cute, and I have a thing with squares in quilts-my mind is symmetrical I guess.


I bought this Modern Log Cabin book ages ago.  I did make one quilt from it  a few years ago, but I'm really drawn to the one on the front.  Looks like something that should be kept on the couch for winter tv watching!



And, I've made more chevron scarves than you can count, but have yet to make a chevron quilt!!  It's the whole reason I bought this Quilting Quickly magazine.

Pin ItOk, so that's 5 projects
1. Sweets
2. Framed
3. Sawyer's Tracks
4. Log cabin crosses
5. Chevron
Let's see how many can be completed this year-on top of my regular orders and craft fairs!!

Awesome choices! I think I will have project planned for the next 10 years just from what others have chosen! I am in LOVE with the cross quilt on the front of the Log Cabin book. I have been wanting to do that one too!Thanks for joining TLP!

Love your picks and that chevron is so "you"! I see a few in your list that I would love to make. Should be fun to see how we all make out with finishes.

I love your choice from Simply Retro. I *may* have to buy another book!

I echo Adrienne's sentiments - I keep getting inspired by other people's choices (and wanting to buy more books!) I do love a good log cabin... I made so many back in the day that it would be fun to do one now with a more modern aesthetic. I feel a quilt redux coming on!

Dominique said...

Good choices, Jeanette! Nothing wrong with good old squares and rectangles... I am constantly amazed at how versatile they can be.

Log Cabin Crosses is totally on my to-do list as well but it didn't quite make the cut for what I was willing to commit to for this QAL. I'm sure yours will be amazing!
