First Project of the Year Started!! Woo! Hoo!!

It seems like it is always hard for me to get started on a project but once I finally do, I just dive in and love it!!

I just started the Quiltalong "Just Takes 2" presented by Gay over at Sentimental Stitches and Brenda over at Dear Jane.  It's a year long project where we will recieve 2 sections of the quilt from the two websites each month.  The quilt is set up to be a red and white quilt but many of the participants are doing their own thing.

Here are my first 2 of 6 blocks that we received January 1st.  I decided to do my applique work by machine as that is my favorite but I also noticed as I finished the block on the left that the red thread in the white fabric will compliment the red work that can be part of some of the blocks.  The red work is optional and I opted to add it.

This is going to be a fun, fun project!!

Downloaded the patterns but am one of those that can't make up her mind as to colour!!! I lke the red and white but the white puts me off cos I'm a grub. I so want to do this one though as I like the look of it.
