Hi Jane,
I do worry about the "outcome" of my quilts. I live very near the largest Amish population (in the US, they say). Needless to say, there are a huge number of beautiful, perfect looking quilts everywhere you look. I have sort of looked to those as my "goal". I judge my work against them - I never measure up. I have given quilts and wall hangings as gifts - and I know their flaws - but the recipients are gracious and seem to really like them. I stick to the traditional patterns and squares. I have trouble with triangles and keeping the right size. I am practicing a lot. Paper piecing makes some of that easier. I am also working on hand-knitting a sweater - just for myself. I have the back and one side of the front done. That leaves the other side, 2 sleeves and a cowl collar. I had hoped to finish it for this years winter season - I know it's just started - but I've lost my motivation to do it right now. I have a Lone Star king quilt that is almost finished quilting. I am doing it by machine and have just 2 more "open" areas between the star points - and then quilting along the borders. So, I'm excited to finish that. I hope to have that done by the end of the month. I might make it. HA

Jane- Glad you liked the Snow Friends Like Old Friends. It was fun to do and I bought it at a quilt show. I will try and find some info on it to see if you can buy it online. Happy New Year.

Jane thanks for your comments. I do love snowmen and also anything fall/autumn. I got the snowman yoyo patterns from Indygo Junction online. They have dogs, cats, elephants, puppies and so on.... This pattern actually has directions for Santa Clause and a Reindeer. But here in Southern PA-Northern Maryland, everyone loves Snowmen so I decided to do him. As busy as you are with grandchildren, this would be a great project to do. It is easy to make yoyos and this is very portable. Let me know if you decide to do them.

Welcome to the group and Happy New Year! Where are you in New York? I used to live on the Island until I was around 5 and then lived up near Niagra Falls.

Sounds like all you needed to make that baby quilt was the courage! Good for you. Hope you will post some pics on here?
