I have started the blocks for my 2015 Modern Sampler using the book written by Katie Clark Blakesley, Lee Heinrich, and Faith Jones called Vintage Quilt Revival.

My small group of friends and I will be doing this as our BOM this year.  Our plan is to complete two blocks each month and have twenty blocks by October so we can put it together and have it quilted by Christmas, 2015.

Keeping to this plan will force me to complete a project and not create another UFO.

My first two blocks for January:

My fabric choices are Kona Color Solids and Kona Snow.
I am using solids to challenge myself.  I think working with solids forces me to really think about the value and hue intensity of each color.
