Can you believe the first month of 2014 is already down in the history books!  I signed up to participate in this NewFO Challenge.  2014 NewFO Challenge
What in the world did I get myself into?  The rules seemed simple enough, all you had to do was start a new project each month; you didn't have to finish it but you could if you wanted or had time to.  I could do that easy enough, start a new project that is.  You can play along too if you want.  The complete rules are posted here on Cat Patches.

So, here's what I started:

My Farmer's Wives's blocks - 5 of them to be exact

My Log Cabin Houses -

A Valentine wall hanging for the applique class - And I finished it!  (I had to for the class)

Another Valentine wall hanging for the applique class - one to work on while teaching the class

The Pixel Faberge Egg  for the Wake Up to Kona Blog Hop

Geese Circling New York for the Wake Up to Kona Blog Hop

And a couple of door stops for the Don't Let the Door Stop You Blog hop (that you'll have to check back on my day February 6th to see.

I think that's it.



  1. You were quite creative and productive in January. I so love your log cabin blocks. Happy quilting.

  2. Wow you got several beautiful things started! My problem is not starting, it's finishing. Oh well, starting is such fun. :) blessings, marlene

  3. Wow, lots of pretty stuff here. I have that Valentine's quilt on my to-do list. Thanks for linking up.

  4. Wow!! You go! :D Farmer's Wife is a big project. You'll love that. I did a Dear Jane over the span of two years (10 blocks per month), and it was the best feeling when she was done. Lonely feeling, too - like when you finish an epic book series and you feel like dear friends are suddenly just gone. . . Enjoy!

  5. I am enjoying doing the tiny blocks! I need to get a copy of Farmers wife or Dear Jane!

  6. You sure kept yourself busy in January! What a great way to start the year! Lovin' those Dear Jane blocks and the log cabin and house blocks, especially. Your Kona projects are sure gorgeous too!

  7. Wow, looks like you have been really busy! I love your Farmer's Wife Blocks---I really want to make some of those! Thanks for all the inspiration!

    Would love for you to stop by and link this up to Fabric Frenzy Friday!

  9. Very productive! My faves are the egg and the Geese Circling New York:):)

  10. You really do amaze me with all the stuff you get done Miss Doris/aka productive woman and faboolous quilter !

  11. Wow, the Geese Circling block is great!!
