If you are like me, you have many quilting books and magazines. Pages marked, indicating quilts you must make. How about single patterns? I have lots of them too. Or, how about a head so full of ideas, you are afraid it may explode! The patterns just keep coming. And, don't forget the Internet, with hundreds of patterns right at your finger tips and many for free!
All markers have been removed from my books and magazines. Boy, does that look better! I have recorded (in a spiral notebook) all patterns and locations. So, when I am looking for something specific, I can refer to the notebook. Then, for times when I'm not sure what I want to make or feeling a little adventurous, I can go to my Quilt Jar. Everything that is in my notebook, is in my Quilt Jar. That's right! It doesn't take much to amuse this quilter!
This past weekend, brought lots of rain and a few large snowflakes. But, a stroll through the garden, still brings delight.

Last week, I finished appliqueing my special block, to go with the baby Dresden's. It's very cute! Next, I piece the blocks together, then, maybe a little more applique. We will see. I also did the prep work for a couple of small Christmas projects and a little hand quilting on my large Dresden quilt. Also, worked a little on my Polka-Dot Girls and made another Dear Jane block.
