New Year ... New Project

I do not need to begin another project!  But with the new year here I need something different to work on during the dreary winter days of January.  Machine applique has always been my favorite thing so this is my new project.  It has been sitting in my sewing room for months now.
 
It's a kit I bought last year at my local quilt shop during a 30% off sale.  It's called "Tiny Town" by Bunny Hill Designs.  The sample that was hanging in the shop was adorable. I love all the colors used in the quilt.  It's a tiny town with all types of  houses and buildings ... everything you would find in a town.  I will show you my progress as I work on each block.  I can't wait to get started!
I did finish a baby gift this morning ... a receiving blanket, burp cloths and and two embroidered bibs.  At least I can say I have accomplished something this year!
Thanks for visiting!
Hugs,
Donna

Oh so cute. I can't wait to see your progress. You do great work. I plan to start an applique project soon. I'm very inexperienced so I need to study up before I start. Happy stitching!

I can't wait to see what you make - the Bliss fabrics have been my absolute favourite since they came out - they are so nice I can't bear to cut into them - so I'm certainly looking for inspiration!!
