Quilt Project 2016 #1

2016 is planned as the year to do some quilts I’ve always wanted to try.  I may not get the techniques just right and I may not get them perfect, but I will be able to say I finally did them.  Paper piecing is one on the list.  I’ve tried once and the pieces were not perfect so I need to learn that a little more.  Applique – not a huge fan but I have all the shop hop rows I got from all over the country so at least one of those quilts needs to get finished.  I want to do a french braid with center blocks and before 2016 is over I will have completed a mariners Compass quilt.  I saw one 20+ years ago and it’s what inspired me to begin quilting.  I thought it would be amazing to make something like that.  20+ years later and I’ve never made one.  So 2016 is new horizons and new techniques and I WILL learn to free motion quilt feathers.  I’m also hoping to teach a few new people how to quilt.

This is the block I’m currently working on just as kind of a fill in project.  Once I quilt a bargello for a friend and make a t-shirt quilt for a customer I will start on projects for 2016.   This is coming out pretty and I’ll probably post if for sale.  Wish you tell from picture the pinwheel is 3-d.
