First, here are the blocks I made in the month of January for my 1930s Farmer's Wife quilt.

I have ordered the fabric for the setting triangles as well as the backing.  Now that I have more than a third of the blocks done, I will start piecing them together.  I think I will also quilt that 1/3 of the quilt, too, and then sew the sections together at the end.  I need to figure out a plan for the quilting.

I finished the back of my Charlie's Cardigan, and have cast on the first front piece.  I need to remember I want to wear this on Easter, and work on it even though it is boring.

Progress is much slower on my Hedgerow.  Plus sized tall sweaters in fingering weight yarn are not projects to rush!

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for On the Needles !

One of these days I want to make one of these quilts. To many irons in the fire to start one now. Good Job!!!

Your Hedgerow piece is looking beautiful. Don't rush it, enjoy the process and the beautiful yarn colors you are using.
