I plan to repurpose a briefcase/tote to take to next month's ALA Midwinter Meeting . It will replace a repurposed briefcase that's worn out after a dozen or so conferences.

The second project is to finish the New York Beauty blocks for the guild challenge. I will need 16. The reveal is in March, so if I make the blocks in January I can quilt it in February.
Here is the Elm Street Quilts OMG linkup.
On Ringo Lake: 1 block completed, 49 to go.
Here's the first flimsy (unquilted top) of 2018. Late last week I wanted to work on something that was different from the other works-in-progress (NYB, ORL, and the Block Heads). I clipped this pattern from a back issue of Quilt magazine months ago. The designers are Tammy Silvers and Julia LaBauve. The blocks are 12" fin., three sizes (2.5" center w/ 1.5 strips; 2.5" center with 2" strips; 3.5" center with 2.5" strips). 5-7/8 yards used, all from my stash (of course).
