How have you been? I have been sewing up a storm this past weekend. And the last 2 nights stitching on binding on table runners for fall-- really trying to be a little ahead for the fall shows!
I am participating in the Aurifill BOM this month was the basket type block and the spool block is from January -- I purchased the fabric at a fabric estate sale last year -- it was a fat quarter bundle -- finally something to do with them!
Here is just the Feb block. I am liking the pink and greens :)
I am also involved in the Quilt Doodles block or row of the month -- January was the row of snowman and this month is a cabin -- this is the basic cabin -- I still need to add some extras - like snow - shutters and maybe lace curtains. Love to embellish blocks it really makes them "yours".
I have been working on some of last years Easter projects that did not get done on time, I had the cute little bunny done, I just needed a towel and then a little embellishment of rick rack -- so darn cute and so Spring like -- hopefully someday we will have Spring! The other one is just a little wallhanging that I started last year -- used up a little fabric and I have a great little gift to mail out for Easter.
WOW this is a long "Show N Tell" post -- another project of the month is the Pat Sloan Globetrotting project, the large block is the first block (26 inches) and the smaller block is the February block. I have never worked with red, white and grey and I am enjoying working with some new colors.
And here is my Schnibbles for the month -- it is our choice this month and this pattern came out of Carries Book -- again using a group of fat quarters that I rec'd from a friend -- I only made 4 blocks instead of the 16 for the regular size Schnibble -- but this will look great on our table this summer and I am trying to make things we can use.
And last but not least - Pat Sloan on her Quilting with Pat Sloan Facebook page has challenged us to use up some scraps - I think this is monthly also -- not sure this just started. The block she selected for this project was the Shoo Fly block and we are to make 20 blocks - I was going to use a variety of blues til I went into my blue bin and found 3 fat quarters of this blue and then I found a small piece of a perfect gold for the center square and for the white tone on tone I am using up those little pieces we save - I think this project going forward will really help use up some of those smaller pieces -- and my goal is to only use scraps or what I have for this group -- truly need to use up some fabric and I know I have had this fabric from 2007 -- that is what it says on the salvage -yes I have older fabric than that too but I have to start somewhere! LOL
And finally a picture of my girl Poochie -- this was taken the last snow storm we had a few weeks ago around Valentines day -- she has her Valentines day bandana on! Yes the snow was super deep -- we had since had rain and a little snow and now we are back in the below zero range! Oh my this is so good for u s quilters to get lots done, but my oh my when will spring come!
We did start a few seeds indoors this weekend, with hopes that spring and summer will eventually arrive!
Thank you for visiting! See you soon and Sew lots!
