Goodbye 2014, Hello one more NewFO

Yes, you heard that right again.  I'm starting something NEW again...  But this one I hope to be quite productive. 

Here's my scrap basket that my friend gave me (empty) only a month ago.  I have filled it with scraps (strings) THAT fast!  I need to get a grip on my strings.  I have watched and admired Kate and her many quilts that she has made for charity.  I have watched her use up the scraps in her scrap bin one quilt at a time. 



Instead of playing a silly facebook game I have decided to work on my scrap basket.  Deb from StitchinTherapy has motivated me to string it along this year too.  I'm going to work on Sonja's Windows.  It is from America Loves Scrap Quilts 2009. 

You can see the string quilt that I will be working on here:  http://www.mccallsquilting.com/mccallsquilting/articles/Sonjas_Windows).
Can't wait to see fast progress!

I'm linking up with Sharon at Vroomans Quilts for Let's Book It.  I'm also linking up with Barb of Cat Patches for the last New FO linky party.  Let the fun begin!

I have cut my 14" foundation squares from newspapers.  I have only used phone books in the past.  I'll let you know how the print of newspapers work.  Hopefully too much won't rub off.  I only need ten of the 14" blocks.  That should be some good, mindless sewing for New Year's Eve while my husband and son play in the garage and then on their iPads in the same room where I sew.  Whohoo!  Now that's what I call a great night!

Let the sewing begin!!!
