Back from Holidays

I have been noticeably absent from my blog for the last month or so.  We have just returned from another wonderful beach holiday - I think the following photo sums up our holiday perfectly!

From a quilting perspective, I don't have much to show for the last month.  I usually take the month of January off from customer quilting, taking some time to work on my own projects.  I have started another pieced quilt - the Urban Nine Patch quilt by Jenny of Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I am a long timer admirer of Jenny's piecing and her incredible machine quilting.  My Urban Nine Patch is being made with solid fabrics only and I am hoping to eventually quilt it in a similar manner to Jenny's quilt.  Below are the first blocks I have made.
I have also started another trapunto quilt - here is a snippet - not sure how it will turn out - there is a long way to go yet.
With the end of January fast approaching, it is time to return to customer quilting - I am looking forward to seeing what quilts 2013 will bring.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and as always, happy quilting!
