Yes, a New Year has come-2016-and 2015 is gone with good memories. The year 2016 will bring me a new Greatddaughter in February and a new Granddaughter in May which means my Granddaughter Gracie will have a little sister. I am a very proud Grandma/Great Grandma. So with this in mind my word for 2016 is "Future". I am looking forward and the future to playing with my two new little girls and Gracie. I am also looking into this"Future 2016 Year" to have seven completed quilts quilted and completely done. (last year I completed 5 quilts) I plan this "Future" year to have more UFO quilt tops finished. And in this "Future Year" I plan to continue using my scrap stash. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com continues to inspire me and I am looking forward to her "Future" Mystery Quilt next fall. In the "Future" 2016 months I plan to go on a Retreat in March, going to Paducah with four friends in April and my Guild Retreat in the fall. This future year I want to use my embroidery machine more and to use my EQ7/EQ Stitch. I wish every one Happy New Year for our "Future" year of 2016.
I have one star block done. I know the picture is blurred, but my essential tremor is acting up today. But the picture should give an idea of my colors and fabrics I have chosen. I still have to do steps five and six. But, I got excited that I could do 1 block for show and tell. Except for the neutrals I stayed with the same fabric throughout. Thank you Bonnie giving this MQ to everyone.

Well, I don't have any of the steps so far completed. However, I am working on it. As Bonnie has said, if you get steps completed to do enough of them to be able to start putting it together at result time, So I can always go back and finish each step. I am not a fast sewer and not in a race. So today I am posting some of the 4 patches. Shown here are 40 of them. I do have more to complete 120, but have to put each half together.

I have finished another project. This time it is my Molly Mine machine embroidery. I did the embroidery at my small group retreat a couple of years ago. It was a lot of fun to do as we swapped fabrics and thread. I stay so far behind in finishing my projects, so I am very happy to have this done.

I have my challenge fabric done in a quilt. The small quilt group I belong to does a fat quarter fabric challenge and we try to come up with something we make out of it for the next time we have a retreat. We meet for a retreat twice a year. Our retreat this time is the first week in August. I finished my challenge last night. The fabric was Christmas red with round peppermint candy on it. One person brings a fat quarter for each person to make something for the next retreat. We have six ladies in our small group and we take turns on who brings the challenge fabric. So here is what I came up with,
