Plans for 2017

My plans for posting during the week with projects for this year
came unstuck when I had to go along to visit the doctor.
Armed with antibiotics (again!!) and an increase in two other
medications I am now getting back into the quilting zone.

However, I had so many things on my original project list made in December that
I was obviously dreaming when I made it! 
As mentioned in my last post I have one or two special projects on the
horizon, I'm looking forward to these very much. Over the next week
I shall work on refining my original plans, but, I had to begin
something new of course!

A new kaleidoscope and a new name -

Material Obsession 2 by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke
has a few quilts I'd love to make one day and the "Stashbuster"
was just what I needed at the moment. The original uses strips of fabrics cut
between 1 and 1/2" and 3" and in most cases only shows
two strips in the wedge, I'm using the clean up cuts from my two bins
and have a variety of fabrics this block.
Just the one "prototype" made at the moment but I'll get on with
more next week.
Houses or stars are planned for this afternoon for RSC 2017.

Time for a cuppa but here's a flower photo to finish

one of my favourite hydrangeas.

RSC post tomorrow!


  1. Goodness me I hope you will be back firing all all cylinder's soon, you have so much to create!

  2. Hope you are feeling heaps better now, not what you want to start a new year. Glad you managed a little sewing.

  3. Maybe we can have a small competition, with Dr's visits, meds increasing, and quilts waiting!!! I hope the new tablets do the trick and you are back and ready for anything that crops up in the New Year.

  4. I hope you feel better soon!
    And I may be more excited about your new project than you are - wow! I'm practically jumping up and down with impatience to see what you do with that fantastic new kaleidoscope!

  5. Yes, I think you may have to revisit the doctor and get a double dose, because your quilt block is so enticing I need to see more RIGHT NOW!

  6. Looking good... my daughter started that same quilt a few years ago, didn't finish, I've got all her blocks here somewhere!

  7. What a lovely version of kaleidoscope. I can't wait to see more. Please get better soon. Hopefully the new meds will help you turn the corner.

  8. I hope you feel better soon! I love this version of the kaleidoscope; it's especially nice to see all those lovely dotty fabrics again.

  9. Hopefully the meds have kicked in and you are feeling 100%. A very fun and colorful block. Looking forward to seeing where you take it from here.

  10. Oh, I hope you feel better soon! Love the kaleidoscope. I really want to make a kaleidoscope quilt. Bought the ruler and need to choose some fabrics and just go. I love your block-right up my alley.

  11. Hi Maureen ,love your kaleidoscope and I hope you are feeling better soon,your work is amazing.

  12. Great kaleidoscope block. Thanks for sharing the flower photo, a beautiful hydrangea, the violet and lime green, wow.
