January New FO projects

Hi everyone!!

These are two new projects that I've started in January 2012...

This first project was inspired from Ms. Nanette at Freda's Hive from her Scraptacular Picnic Quilt tutorial. I choose to make it  into 12 pieces of 13" blocks  from scraps fabric.   Added with 2" sashing using white fabric... and this is how it looks like once I've done... this is my first quilt top that I've sewn for 2012.

My second project is a quilt for my boy size 60" x 72"

Both are ready to be quilted with the backing.

Happy Sewing!!
