Great Start to the New Year, piecing, quilting, relaxing and staying warm

Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start, mine certainly is.   The boys have already had their first sleep over for the year, I've been able to get some piecing done on Bonnie Hunters On Ringo Lake mystery quilt and even getting some time with April on the long arm with Old Friends slowly but surely getting done. 
On Ringo Lake - first two rows together
On Ringo Lake is quite a quilt I must say!  It's a bit tricky and slow putting the blocks together and then the rows but looks like it will be so worth it.  Not sure if I will make a large quilt or two smaller ones, we'll see after I get a couple more rows done.  Right now I only have two little itty bitty rows done, but it's two more than I had at the start of the day.
Third row laid out
I now have a plentiful supply of Superior Thread Bobbin Line Dark Grey.  I've got 10 bobbins wound and ready to go.  Love how this is turning out so far.  Lots of ruler work, different fills and free motion feathers, just like  I like it!
Old Friends BOM - side border

Old Friends BOM - almost to the first full row of stars

It's a big 'un
Linky up with a few linky parties, see the side bar, it's been a while since I've done a link up.  Some of the buttons maybe out dated.  If you know of some good linky parties, let me know.  I'm also love seeing some great inspiration.


  1. I have been saving the instructions for On Ringo Lake - I do that so often with Bonnie's mysteries but never end up making them but this one is calling to me - when? who knows but I have liked what I have been seeing of it in blog land

  2. Your On Ringo Lake blocks look great! Nice fabrics.

  3. LOVE the color combo you've chosen for On Ringo Lake!! Your quilt is going to be so pretty.

  4. Love your Ringo--so fresh and happy! And your quilting is wonderful--love how it's coming along!

  5. Love those solid Double 9 Patches. The quilting is great.

  6. LOVE your colors for ORL! I was trying to think of a color other than browns to use, I don't have many at all and am not in a position to buy fabric right now...but your quilt looks like you went with blues...and it looks fabulous!!! Would you mind if I followed your lead?

  7. Wow, what a bright version of ORL! It's fun to see people's interpretations of the design. And happy new year to you!

  8. Your Ringo Lake looks great with the green! I am still working on more flying geese.

  9. Gosh, Sue, your Old Friends BOM quilt is delectable!


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
