Before dinner, I began thinking about loading Carol's quilt on the longarm. Thread has been selected, but I need to decide on a quilting design. Here are the two choices and I'm hoping YOU have an opinion about which one works best for this whimsical quilt:
This afternoon, I prepared to start sewing on January's TABLE SCRAPS Challenge. I had planned on doing a runner this month and opted for Quilt-As-You-Go. Here is the center strip with separate stacks for the left and right of center:
Before bed, I released THIS Design Floor Friday post.

Illuminating + Ultimate Gray
Welcome to The Joyful Quilter!! And... Welcome to the wonderful world of Project QUILTING hosted by Kim Lapacek @ Persimon Dreams!! This is my 2nd year of participation in the Challenge. Trish Frankland @ QuiltChicken is the creator of the crazy challenges that participants will face during the next 12 weeks.
Sassy @ Farm Quilter got me started at the beginning of Season 11 by inviting her readers to join in the fun. Will you come alongside me in this creative journey? It's a wild ride, but oh SEW rewarding! I
may be am dragging along my friend LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color this season. Yay!!
Challenges are given and start to finish you have ONE WEEK to complete your project. PQ 12.1 can be found at this LINK.
As we all look forward to a better year ahead, these colors offer a solid, dependable base (gray) accompanied by a hopeful and sunny outlook (yellow).
You have one week to meet the challenge. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline – that is, started on or after January 3, 2021, and posted by noon Central January 10, 2021.

Follow THIS LINK to the Season 12 overview. Check back on the Challenge release days (or sign-up to be notified automatically) and there may be one that YOU just can't resist.
It's a SHORT turnaround time!
Depending on the size and complexity of your project, that doesn't HAVE to be insurmountable. With a little creativity and a few evenings, you really CAN do this! My project was begun shortly after the prompt was announce but was finished with only 21 hours until the deadline. Even so, I linked up with only ONE hour to spare, joining in at entry number 200 (which I thought was pretty cool.)
