I Started a New Quilt!

I've been wanting to make a blue and white quilt - blue, but leaning toward navy. When I saw Bonnie Hunter's new pattern, Winter Blues, I thought it would fit the bill. I have a love/hate relationship with Bonnie Hunter quilts. The pieces are so SMALL! But in the end, I always love these quilts. My favorite quilt I finished in 2020 is Pfeffernusse. Lots of tiny pieces. But all those seam allowances make for a nice, heavy quilt which I find comforting. 

So what you see above is the start I made today at cutting the pieces. I pulled out all my blues that I thought would work and began to cut 1.5" strips. I have a bit more cutting to do. And yes, I did order a bit more navy fabric from Whittles Fabric today, but just a few pieces.

I had a wonderful walk this morning - 2.2 miles! I try to go a bit further each day as long as my feet are cooperating. You know I had a bad fall several years ago and tore up the ligaments in my right foot. Sometimes that foot or ankle 'talks to me,' and not in a good way. My new shoes came this afternoon and I love them.  I have also ordered an ankle sleeve for more support, too. It should be here soon.

If anything hurts, I stop. And I might take a day or two off from walking. But I've mostly been fine. My new Apple Watch? I LOVE, LOVE it! It keeps me motivated! I love the way I've been feeling since I've increased my walking. My blood pressure is still a bit high, but my doctor will help me with that.

That's it from here. 

Stay safe!


  1. Happy New Year! Good for you too not only for a new start quilt wise but more importantly for maintaining your health (foot issues considered) with walking 2.2 miles. Sounds like you’re going to have an awesome year.

  2. Love your fabrics, I don't enjoy sewing up very small pieces but I do love her patterns. Once it warms up a bit again I need to get out there and walk too. I started last summer but I was trying to keep up with a new friend and we did over 5 miles in a week-it was too much and I haven't been back. will stop at2 or 3 miles next time Happy new week
