Back in the day, I posted frequently about quilting progress, projects I was working on and completed quilts. While I have continued to sew, posting about it has become a rarity it seems. In 2022, I want to keep better track of what I'm doing. Following Jeni Baker's lead, I am also tracking my fabric purchases and the amount of fabric I use up/destash. My goal is to sew mainly from what I already have on hand.
So. On to things I worked on in January.
WORKS IN PROGRESS:
My friends, Stephanie and Pam, and I decided to choose a block of the month we could each work on, and then Zoom once a month and sew together. We chose the Hygge quilt by Annemarie Chaney. I'll be honest and say I'm not a huge Tula Pink fan, but I have always thought her Holiday Homies line was really cute. It comes in flannel and seemed like a win-win. It will be a little bit "holiday" but not too much, so we can use it throughout the cold months, not just Christmas.
The first block was this series of cute mugs.
I started the Riley Blake Designs 2022 Block Challenge. Three blocks were released in January, one each Tuesday for three weeks. I'm using a fat quarter bundle that I have had for a long time: Rosa by Crystal Manning for Moda Fabrics. I had just been waiting for the "right" project and this seems to be the one.

This was a seemingly simple block that I ended up making and remaking. I didn't take a photo of the first time I made it, but I switched these two around. So Jack the Ripper to the rescue.
