Happy new Year!

Yeahh, it's January first and what have I done today? First I've been to the woods for a walk with Joseph and when I came home I saw a box with scraps in my closet, it caught my attention.



I thought it would be nice to start cutting triangles and sew them together.



Just simple and nice for a first day of the year.



just add a border and...



ta daaahh... My first finished mini top in 2009!

Happy New Year!

The perfect start to a quilty year! Leave it to you to accomplish so much so quickly. I'm afraid I have to spend today putting away the rest of the Christmas decorations. I hate it when I don't get that done before the new year! I'd much rather be sewing. What perfect antique-looking scraps you found in your closet.

I always love all your little "ta daaahs" that you make look so simple! Good job, and happy 2009!

I love everything you do. Your fingers are like magic. Everything they touch turns into something wonderful. I'm looking forward to another year of Lucy magic.

Oh Lucy what another lovely mini top - I must confess though that I have at times over the winter break hunted out scraps and cut them into 1" squares (25mm), I just need to find a box for them and then sometime I'll sort out a mini top along the lines of yours

Lucy - Absolutely lovely...as always. I aspire to have a wall of mini-quilts like yours. Yet somehow, I never seem to get there. Ah, well, it's a new year, so I hope you will continue to inspire me and I will finally get my wish. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Wow that is so beautiful and you did it in no time...You've got those points down to a science...what's the secret to it? Gorgeous stuff.

Happy New Year

Beautiful - you see beauty. Thank you for sharing your vision and the work of your hands.

Mercedes said...

HOw cute it is !! NIce idea for a nice day. Happy New year for you and family from Spain!

Judy said...

You know I much prefer to make my hst's with actual cut triangles too. Easier to sew for me than the "sew on each side of the line" thing.

The mini is just perfect, Lucy!

Jackie said...

I spent some time over the holiday cutting up my scraps. I wasn't very inspired though (I'm a new quilter). This post, however, is very inspiring and I'm going to bookmark your blog to look through it in more detail. Thank you!
