RED LETTER DAY

This year I have been using The Quilter's Planner for 2016.  I is pretty much a weekly planner for the whole year.  It does have lots of room for adding in quilting project information.  However, it turned out to be much more of a calendar planner, which I already keep both at work and here at home for all those daily appointments and such.  As I saw 2017 fast approaching I decided to try this Scrappy Project Planner instead, from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I love it.  When it arrived I sat down and started through my stacks of unfinished projects and began to enter them to see if I could get a handle on finishing up some of them.  
This is the first project in my planner.  I had three blocks complete, these two ready to lay out and sew together, and the last four in varied stages of ready to cut out and start lay out. 
 So here is the green set.
And the aqua set.  The fabrics are all Bonnie and Camille, and the pattern Red Letter Day by Thimble Blossom.  I hope that Red Letter Day is a good term to start my process in getting some of these projects done and the this new planner the help I need to organize working on them.
So I am linking up with

  1. Not quite sure I could stick with a planner - too many other projects pop up! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers

  2. I love your scrappy blocks! It really does require a certain knack to pull so many scraps of different fabrics together and end up with a block that looks cohesive and balanced like yours do.

  7. I ordered the Quilter's Planner 2016 too and right before the summer life got so crazy I stopped using it and never got back to it. This sounds like a great planner and how exciting to be working on a WIP already! Yay! Love your progress. The blocks are awesome!
