Wow! It’s the end of January already. Where did the first month of 2023 go?! Oh right… it went with all the busy-ness that was quilting and crafting and that other thing – my day job.

Pinwheel Jelly Roll Race with added Christmas Candy border.

Not a bad way to finish January – with a fun quilt. I took the idea for the border from a table runner pattern. I like that the candy pieces on the border match the pinwheels in between the strips.

Since it’s the last day of the month, I wanted to check my 2023 lists. Before anyone throws shade, the lists are hopes, not requirements.
