New Quilt for a New Year

It is a new year, so why not start a new quilt!  I do have plans on finishing my old works in progresses, but I think that they have graduated to that UFO state.  I notice that there are a lot of resolutions out there to finish quilts, but I will get there — one day!  In the meantime, I have a number of baby quilts to start and finish.  Here is a a great start to the new year.

On Sunday, I worked on a Floating Triangles quilt.  The pattern is by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts Blog in her book, Skip the Borders.  All in one day, I cut into my stash of greens, chain pieced, assembled, and basted.  It could have easily been a quilt in a day if my bedtime wasn’t so early!  I even had an extra helper — Jimmy.  In the picture, you can see that he is having a blast with the scraps.  I also cut extra squares until I ran out of black fabric.  When I finally order more, there may be a twin of this quilt soon.  I will hopefully be able to share this completed quilt, resulting in the first finish of 2013.

Lee from Freshly Pieced Blog is hosting the Work-In-Progress Wednesday Link-Up.  Check out what other projects are brewing for 2013!
