January RSC Update
I've talked about all of this stuff during the month so this is just a little wrap up[ post. I'll be linking to the RSC main blog.
My project is to make blocks from a hoard of repro fabrics and then to use those blocks to make 8 lap quilts from the last of my Great Grandmother's UFO projects. She made 8 big string stars that will be the centers of the blocks. Since I like to take pre-cut kits on my vacation to Maine, I will just be cutting out blocks each month and will take them with me in August to sew. I'm picking only 9-patch patterns in the hope that it will be easier to put these quilts together in the end. This month I cut 8 blocks in each of these patterns. They are placed on cardboard pieces that came with some glass time. They are going to stack really nicely for travel.
My other goal is to make a doll outfit each month for my SIL's granddaughter. She wrote me the cutest thank you note for this little nightgown and even gave me a A+ sticker!
There's nothing like a little positive feedback to keep you going. This is the start of a second outfit. I've got a hat cut out and probably need to make a t shirt to go under it.
The February color is yellow and here are the fabrics that I've pulled to start with.

Sounds like you are having fun with the doll cloths. So smart to go with one little fiddly outfit a month.

You had a good month in January - add in the veteran quilts, your Mom's quilt, the floorcloths. 14 pounds of soap, and who knows how much fabric you dyed and I would say you did well!

There's a little girl who is going to have THE best-dressed doll ever!
