WIP Wednesday

Happy 2013 -- hope you had a lovely (and uneventful!) New Year's Day.  I drove over the mountains to the charming small town of Buena Vista to visit Serendipity Yarn and Gifts for their New Year's Day sale.  I'll show my my haul on Saturday Stash.

Getting prepped for the 13 in 2013 Challenge means I don't have much in the way of WIPs this week.  On the design wall is the February Jelly Roll Party quilt, pieced except for the top and bottom borders.  It's made with a Moda Bella Solids jelly roll in Christmas Red and Bella Solids Snow for the background.  I've wanted a red and white quilt since the sensational show at the New York Museum of of American Folk Art. Because it's made from a jelly roll, there was no way to pre-wash that bright red fabric.  This will be a real test for Shout brand Color Catcher Sheets!  If it works, I'll offer my quilt for a commercial!

 The pattern is "Cross my Heart" from Cozy Quilt Shop.

I liked  using my white board (recycled from DH's former office) to list my "30 Quilts in 60 Days" finishes, so I decided to post my "Quilt To-Do" list each month:

Doesn't look too bad, does it?

Linking up to the first WIP Wednesday of 2013 at Freshly Pieced:
