For every day in 2008, I did something new. In 2016, I am challenging myself to break my routine at least once a week.

Piecing it together
I know a couple of people who are pregnant, so this weekend I made two baby quilts.
I've done this before, but it has been a few years. It didn't take as long as I remember (possibly because I was motivated to get it done this weekend).
I'm not a perfectionist, so the resulting quilts are not perfect, but that's fine - they're intended to be used on a daily basis - to set on the floor for the baby to lie on, to cover up when reading a story, or whatever.
The unusual part of this project was that I didn't buy anything - not even thread. Everything I used was something I already had.
I'm happy with how they turned out. I would have liked to put a border of blue around the second quilt (to match the inner blue between the squares) but I didn't have enough blue, so that didn't happen.
