February in Review

I had a very productive month!

I finished my Valentine patchwork quilt and two comfort quilts from start to finish!

I got my Hillside Houses quilt quilted and bound.


Isn't that texture fantastic! This was quilted by my friend Cyndi at our LQS The Dancing Bobbin.

It is backed with this fabulous metro circles fabric.

And it is bound with scraps of the shot cotton used in the houses.  I'm just so happy with this finish!!

Also quilted by Cyndi this month is my second Farm Girl Vintage quilt.  It is ginormous!  These inside winter photos just don't do this quilt justice.  It is so vibrant and fun.

And of course, it has a scrappy binding.

This is another long overdue UFO that is now FINISHED!

I completed and quilted this top last year and then it sat and sat just waiting for a border to turn it into a real quilt.  Done!

I picked a vibrant green for this border.  It is perfect with the front and those gorgeous raspberries on the back.

That's a total of 6 quilts completed this month!

But I also finished my Polaroids top and made progress on some other WIPs.

I have 23/25 Scrappy Bear Paw blocks done and 33/40 tulips made for the Purple Sewing Challenge.

All of the blocks for my long distance quilt along with my Aunt Charlotte are complete and I've started to work on the sashing. I am really excited about seeing this one come together!

And of course, I created even more WIPs...

I love looking back each month at what I've accomplished.  It really makes me look forward to the month ahead!!

Thanks for stopping by!
