Another challenge?

 Now that I finished my big quilt (see previous post), I spent the past two days going through my stash wondering what to tackle next. I pulled lots of fabrics and projects out covering my quilt table. I finally decided on a few projects for family members (Christmas gifts) and some more baby blankets for etsy. Above is my stack of ironed fabrics, waiting to be cut.

 3 of my projects for family members come from these magazines. They all require some applique (you can see the fusible cut and ready to be ironed onto the fabrics sticking out.

 One of the projects involves this piece of fabric. My sister gave it to me. She has a piece herself (I wonder if she's forgotten about it?) and challenged each of us to make something with it. I am making her Christmas gift with this, adding only one other fabric for a border. I'm really excited to see it finished. She'll have to wait a few months.

And to reward myself for finishing the Twiggy quilt, I bought some fabric from Cottonthreads on etsy. She was having a sale on yardage and I couldn't resist.
Now it's time to colour with my son, before heading back to the quilt table and cutting some fabrics.
