|Not really, wishful thinking!|
I have done quite a few block of the month projects sponsored by local dealers. The last one I signed up for ended up being a problem due to family responsibilities. I just couldn't get to the class. Period. Still have all that fabric, I know I mentioned this before. Not so keen on the fabric either.
How does this translate for 2019? Well, I have an idea, for me. If you want to pursue your own block of project this might work for you as well.
So how does the library theme relate you ask....well I added a new book recently, a gift. Swore I was not going to get any more books. My library is full. Even though I have thinned the herd, so to speak, the keepers are numerous. I am not ready to purge everything, well not much of anything.
Enter this professional quilter, author, designer. I came to know Kathleen Tracy via her blog. What a talented lady she is. Her specialty is small quilts. Since I don't have time for a big block of the month project I thought I would try to do a small quilt, I would like to say monthly but maybe every other month?
Her most recent book is A Prairie Journey-Small Quilts That Celebrate The Pioneer Spirit.
Each little quilt has it's own personality, lots of traditional piecing and color. Such a nice little gift. I have admired all of Ms. Tracy's books but something about this one spoke to me.

- I will use up all those bits and pieces of fabric waiting for a purpose.
- I have oodles of batting scraps too.
- I need some new "littles" for tables, shelves etc. This might fulfill that need.
