NewFO Challenge Plans!

 So I raided my pinterest boards to find some of the quilts I plan to start this year.  I am a finisher, but how nice is it that this challenge doesn't require finishes but starts!  That I can do!  In fact, I already snuck in one block for my first NewFO Talkin' Turkey!
 Here is how it looks on Quiltville.com.  I may do mine in a rainbow of colors all year though I do love Bonnie's version.
 I already have this one cut--Floribunda.  Yes, it is another Bonnie quilt (I AM her number one fan!) and has been waiting for me to just get going on it already!
 Here is the one that inspired Bonnie (I think)...
And this is what Bonnie's looked like with borders.  I think mine may wind up like the one above, I rather like the no border look of it.  
 I have wanted to make a Playing with Jacks (also Bonnie  Hunter, lol) for awhile now.  I found the PERFECT ball and jacks fabric in two different colors that I want to use in it or for the backing.  Lots of HST's in this, but with Triangulations I ought to be able to at least start it, lol.
 While I love anything from Quiltville.com, I also love modern quilts.  This year I want to be sure to make a few.  This block is in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks Vol.5 and there is something about it I just love.
 Pretty sure this is the same block (Cut to Pieces maybe?) and I love it too.  I really heart that mermaid fabric and have been on the lookout for awesome mermaid fabric.  If I like making this block I might have to do one as you see above and one as you see below.  Can't recall where I borrowed the pics when I put them on pinterest but I really, really love these blocks!

 On shop hop I fell in love with this version of Spin Cycle.  I bought the pattern, and I have the Denyse Schmidt fabric so this one needs to happen.
I also have a thirties nine patch quilt that I want to work on at some point this year.   I inherited it from a friend--at least some of the pieces are started, but not by me so that is technically a NewFO right?  I am sure plenty of other ideas will pop into my mind, but this is the plan so far!  
Are you joining in?  What are you going to start in 2013?

Of course I am joining in too. My list of new ones is almost as long as my list of UFO's I want to finish. That list if very long too. I am going to try and finish 2 for everyone I start, so I am going in the right direction. Loaded one on the frame yesterday, that was as far as my energy would go.

So many great new projects for the year. I hope you get some of them finished too. Spin Cycle is super cute, and the block right above it would be very happy in rainbow scraps. Still, I am guessing that Talking Turkey gets to go first? It looks anxious to be a whole quilt.

Such neat projects you have planned. I have a few that I'd love to do. I just need to figure out the balance of finishing some UFO's and starting new projects with a few 'must do' deadlines thrown in. Looking forward to seeing these progress.

Hmmm I like that "Cut to pieces" block, do you have link for directions? I just uncovered another triangles on a roll that was stashed in back of a drawer so I need to make more HST's too.

I've got a whole list of quilts I wnat to start, including Talkin' Turkey and one that looks an awful lot like Spin Cycle.

It's gonna be a fun year!
