A Lovely Year of Finishes and First FAL

My Button

Yeah…..I made my January goal for #ALYOF.   Back on January 5th I blogged  about finishing my baby boy quilt made with Zen Chic Fabric. My cousin’s son has a baby due in April (does that make him/her my 3rd cousin or cousin twice removed??) and I have a feeling it will be a boy   This is the first quilt I’ve made with the “L” shape block.  I didn’t realize how versatile it was and how many different designs I could make with it.  I just played with these 3 ideas on my design wall before settling on the last one.

I’m happy with the way it turned out.  First goal for 2015  ALYoF completed…..yeah me!!!  Hopefully this will be the start of a 12 month streak.  This quilt is also my first FAL quilt for the first quarter.  I originally blogged about it here.
