Show N Tell and lots of it!

Hello!

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!

Happy Stitches!
Dorothy
