Another patchwork blanket

I am posting this now, but I finished another patchwork blanket just before Christmas. It is the largest so far as to the size. It is for twin bed. I quiltet it on my Janome Horizon machine and I must say that I absolutelly love the walkign foot!

Next time I want to try some more difficult blocks, however I am not sure when I will have time to take on such a big project again.  I gave notice in my current job and I am starting in new company in March . I am excited and nervous at the same time. I hope it will be good for me. I am definitelly looking forward to it, but after 8 years in same company it is not that easy to leave. Well, this is a major change, but change I need. So please cross fingers for me!

Last Sunday I was playing around with my fabrics, just waiting for some idea to kick in. Many friends around me have small kids now, and I wanted to make a baby blanket for long time. And when I saw the variety of colors,  I thought, let’s just make simple blocks and finally make it. So I did. I finished yesterday and here is the picture. I am just sad that I don’t have a machine with which I could quilt it nicely, but maybe with time.  For now I need to be satisfied with this:
