For January, my goal is to finish a mini quilt I started years ago. It's honestly been so long, I've forgotten exactly when I started it. But I found a file for it in EQ5 to give you an idea of how old it is. For some reason I called the file "Marina's Garden Quilt," so that's what I'll keep calling it. It was originally going to be a doll quilt for my daughter's American-Girl-sized doll. But she never really got into dolls, and I never finished the quilt. So now it's a mini quilt! It's a simple pinwheel design, with solid blocks in between. And then double straight borders with corner blocks. I don't usually go for random block layouts, but I did with the pinwheel blocks. Or as random as I can be.

|The quilt sat in the hoop for a long time, waiting for me to get back to it. If you look closely, you might see the lines of hand-quilting.|
|I recreated the file in EQ7 before I found the old file. I picked slightly different fabrics from the library for this one.|
