2013 NewFo Challenge

Hi Y'all ! First things first! I would like to thank everyone who visited More Stars in Comanche during the Dare to Dresden hop. I got "sew" many wonderful and sweet comments on the quilt I made.
 I will reply to your comment if I haven't already..
To the new followers, I am very humbled, Thank You !
Today I took time out to go shopping with my bestest friend.
 Can you guess where we went ? That's right, we went to the quilt shop. 

I'm new to the NewFo Challenge world, but I think I'll fit in just fine. Since January 1st, I've started 4 new things! I love new projects. I want to make almost everything I see ! 
 I get excited  knowing I might need to go to the quilt store...
I love the thrill of the hunt !  

NewFo's hostess with the mostest is Barbara from Cat Patches .
She has a really cute blog ! Go check  out everyone else's new projects there.
Thank you Barbara for the work you put into  NewFo.

This block is for the Quilting Angels Online Club - 2013 Online Sampler Challenge,
 hosted by Angela at Quilts With a Heart .  
I've decided I would not by new fabric for this, I'll just pull from my stash. (Sad face)

This block is the December block for the Liberty and Justice Bee.  
(I made it this month, because I'm new to this group too.)

This is January's L&J block. The finished quilts will be given to someone in the military.
This months Queen wanted us to write some encouraging words in the block, wasn't that a nice idea!
Next month I'm the Queen and I get to choose the block everyone will make for my quilt.

You've seen this quilt, No Diamonds in the Sky. It is not finished yet, I think it was my first new start for the year. I am thinking about what I want to do next, "sew" it's been put aside for a while.

And this quilt I made for the Dare to Dresden hop.
 My last post was about it if you would care to go take a look.
I must get going, I promised the "Ranch Patrol" we would go walking .
Thank you for stopping by! 
Have a wonderful rest of the day and May God bless You.

I love the idea of adding encouraging words to blocks for military/QOV quilts! I love making quilts for QOV. :-) Your Dare to Dresden quilt is adorable. I didn't participate in that hop, but have been watching all the posts to see the cute projects.

The No Diamonds quilt is wonderful. Putting it aside while you think it through is a great idea.
