Hearts for Sage

It is just a start on the Heart Quilt that granddaughter Sage requested.  So yesterday I found this Paper piecing quilt block on the internet and I have a few blocks finished but several more waiting to be sewn.

Quilt As You Go project

I found this pattern on the internet and 
decided it would be great for using up my scrap fabrics.
The squares are 9 1/2 inches.  Stars and Stripes
The backside of the quilt is colorful also.
Lattice to connect the blocks on the backside is a colorful multi stripe.
Lattice to connect the blocks on the frontside is a royal blue.
I am anxious to complete this quilt because golfing will be starting in a couple of weeks.

Lost Book

I am wanting to make this quilt so I have my eyes out for this book. 
 Primitive Gatherings.
I have several Homespun fabrics that would work.

Valentine Day gifts!

 I had these wooden hearts that I found at Michaels Craft
 Store last year after Valentine Day for a song!
Saw this project on pinterest.
 This is a close up of the heart.  
First I covered the wooden heart with scrapbook paper. 
Then I got out my scrabble letters and glued LOVE onto each heart. 
 I added old keys and a couple of bows. 
On this larger heart, I added a small heart along with a key, scrabble letters and bows.

January projects

 This is the 2014 BOM that I am doing this year. 
 It is also also a mystery quilt.  A new pattern is published at the beginning of each month.
I followed the pattern on the internet and then one of the blogs I follow constructed this block
 differently and much easier than the original pattern.  So I made another row of snowmen blocks that way.  Guess I will make two of these quilts this year.  
 This is the row of snowmen for the 2014 BOM.  
I will wait to put on their button eyes after I quilt it.
 Also I have done 15 of these blocks.  It is a 'quilt as you go' pattern.
This is the alternate block for the above star block.  
I need to make seven more of these.
Here I have laid out some of the blocks to get an idea of how it is going to look.  
The blocks will have lattice between them.  
Hopefully it will be easy putting it all together.
