I am still pondering about my RSC2022 options. The list is way too long and I find it hard to remove some contenders. Anyone else with this kind of problem?
The 9-Patch and HSTs are still on ... like forever! Haha.
The crumb bricks too as I don't have enough to do anything with these.

What if I make a mask every month? It looks like we will be needing these for some time still. One thing I forgot to say in my previous post is that we are working from home again. I go to the office two mornings a week to distribute incoming mail and to mail out what was printed by the caseworkers. I like this routine as it gets me out of the house without meeting anyone. Win-win.

The cat one has been washed already and the fabric shrunk
but not the liner so I have to redo this one.
The yellow one is not finished.
I would love to do a Scrap Jar Star quilt. So I will start sewing 4-Patch blocks (or 16 Patch blocks) (same thing). Do I sew the block in rainbow colours or one colour?
Both are pleasing to me. Sigh!
Then the strings are demanding some attention. I have an idea that would be an opportunity for some of them to shine. Still on the drawing board but here's what I have so far.
The solid coloured fabric from my mother's stash is also something I would like to use up and I love this quilt.

There's also this.
Hmm! It could be interesting. No, I don't know the name. Yes, I know where I'm going with this.
I would also love to make another Hidden Gems quilt
or a Burgoyne Surrounded but for a big quilt this time.
How many hours of sewing do I have in a month? Darn! That really cramp my style.
There's also my Personal Rainbow UFO Challenge. The colour red calls for a new project but that's for another post. Stay tuned.
Oh! Almost forgot. I have two finishes to show you. YES!
First, it's Stars in Blue, labeled and all. My first finish of the year! Yay!
Remember this panel I salvaged from a year ago? It was quilted with only batting. No backing. See this post
for the story behind it. It was the perfect size for Stars in Blue. Win/win! (I know it's not straight but it'll do.)
The binding is built with dark blue scraps.
I think it was the only solution to my dilemma since nothing looked good from the front and the back.
Then, there's this finish.
Phew! Made it. Looking at the fabric for clues of who goes with who was impossible in the Spider Web quilt. Once I organized the yellow pieces together, pointing in the same direction, it went so much faster.
All I had to do was to turn the pieces in my hand and search for the yellow piece going to the right.
The rest of the pieces were picked as per their unique shape.
Now, I'll take it apart and put it away so my son can work on the puzzle he received on New Year's Eve.
It's nothing interesting so I won't keep you posted on this one.
The original post was supposed to finish with this paragraph.
I am sorry to announce that the year didn't start on the right foot for us. Raven disappeared on January 3. I've been very down and still am. I'm pushing myself to sew as I know it will help me (and you will too with the comments and your posts about wonderful stuff). Thank you for being there.
After 10 days away, he came back home. I just couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him on the deck. He lost a lot of weight but is otherwise okay as you can tell from this picture.
He's still sassy! Haha. I'm so happy.
Have a great one!
