Twelve by Twelve

Yesterday was a very productive day.
I pieced twelve blocks...twelve by twelve each. Well, at present they are about 13 inches not accounting for the muslin backing, which would make them about 18 inches...but will be trimmed to 12" finished size once stitched.
 Fabrics are some upholstery samples sent to me by Tammy, one of my three secret sisters this year; batiks I purchased while on retreat in November; and floral cottons that I have had for a while and wanted to use in something special.
 I've been wanting a larger CQ project to work on for some time, and this next year...I'll get my wish! 
This quilt and the Dragonfly Garden quilt will be large enough to make into bedsize quilts with borders if I choose. 
 Today, I'm also going to piece a totally batik set of blocks...I'm thinking 8" size. And I still have to piece my CQJP2012 blocks...which I've decided to make totally in white...and 6". 
 Perhaps this weekend, I can get those done...while my muse is in the machine sewing mode!
