A new year and a new project

What better way to ring in the new year than with new fabric and a new project.  Back in November Henry Glass Fabrics hosted "A Flair for fabric" Blog Hop.  I won this cute bundle of "About a Boy About a Girl" by Annie Downs.  It was a fun hop to follow, meeting many new to me quilt and fabric designers.  
Janet Nesbitt from Buggy Barn quilts was the one being highlighted on the day I won.  Now I gotta know do you enter every give away you can?  I tend to only enter if I really like/want the prize.  So I was super surprised when I actually won!


I also won a digital copy of the book below....admitting I've been drooling over this one at the LQS since it's arrival.  Winning it made me giggle like a little girl!  Now which quilt to I make first?  I can't decide so for now I'll do my own thing.


That brings me back to that sweet little bundle of fabric.  This is the first time that I've worked with Henry Glass fabrics, at least to the best of my memory.  I'm loving the quality of the fabric and will definitely be keeping an eye on the new lines coming out. 


There was no real plan, I just flew by the seat of my pants.  After a little head tilting and EQ design blahs I decided to try scanning in part of the panel....


With the help of photo editing and EQ  I printed out an enlarged block for applique.


Not sure exactly where this idea is going but I'm loving it!
