End and Begin Again

This is the week for one last push to the finish.  If you are at all like me, not everything is going to get finished this year.  I did dig out this one last project that I think is within reach for 2014.  I missed three blocks along the way, mainly due to lack of fabric variety in the scrap stash.  The light blue is almost done, I just need to add a black/grey block and one more in browns.  If I can find enough scraps in those colors, this postage stamp quilt will be pretty quick to finish.  Then I can jump back into getting ready for next year's projects.
I've been having SO much fun playing with my snack pack and getting ready for the challenge quilt next year.  I wish I could show you the beautiful blocks I have already made with Vicki's fabrics, but the January posts are already scheduled, and February is on the list for this weekend, so it won't be long now.

Add that to my new addiction to New York Beauty inspired blocks, and a plan for a new string project next  year, and you can see why I really should finish off some of the already started projects that are on my list.
Misterlinky is below so we can all see how the begining of the end is going for you.  It has been exciting for me to start seeing all the beautiful finished quilts popping up.  Great inspiration for next year and maybe a few more after that!

Love the postage stamp blocks. Good luck with your plans to get them into a finished quilt. Hopefully your end of the semester testing and grading stuff won't take up too much of your time.

Love the postage stamps. This time of year is dangerous... too many new projects added to the to do list because the quilts are so pretty! Good luck with your PS block.

Thanks for another year of Rainbow goodness. It's been fun getting to know people and their scraps and to follow their projects.

I still have lots of scraps so looking forward to next year.

I have been looking at all of the rainbow sampler quilts online and drooling. I have decided I need to make one of my own too.

The postage stamps look great but wow...those New York Beauty blocks really are beauties!

I like the postage stamp blocks. Unfortunately my stash is far too small to try those! The New York Beauty blocks look frightfully difficult, are they?

Something else that is proving difficult is linking up this afternoon. I've gone through all the steps, but my thumbnail isn't coming up.

I'm drooling all over your NYB blocks Angela!!! That's a quilt I've always wanted to make - it's on my bucket list :) I'm working hard to finish up my Hooties quilt so I can have two RSC finishes this year. It will be a race to the finish!

You look to be having so much fun with the New York Beauties. I've enjoyed this year's challenge and am looking forward to 2015. Thanks for all your efforts to provide us with a bit of fun and challenging us to use up those scraps.
