I'm hoping my projects will take a new direction this year. I have a couple of quilt tops done or almost done but have yet to get them finished, either by myself or outsourcing. I've found that I so much prefer smaller projects that I can quilt on my own. My plan is to make all those wall hangings I want for my railing at the cabin. I've been planning this since the day we moved in there. At first I didn't want seasonal hangings but now I'm all for it. The way I figure, I can put them up and take them down just like the seasons change. Last fall I started my Twister Jack block but didn't finish it yet. I had too many other things to do than work on a Halloween project. It's ready to go whenever I am though. Right now what I'd like to do is my cabin hanging. So far I have a log cabin block, bear's paw block, Smokey the bear block and a pine lodge block. I also want to make a log cabin (house) block, flag, snake, sun and possibly more animal blocks. Size will definitely be an issue with this. I want it to be something we look at and remember a story about it. I'm hoping this will be an outlet for me to make several of the projects I have on my list.
