End of the Month Progress

I can't believe we are already at the end of February.   I'm so looking forward to March.....I love spring time, tulips, daffodils, daylight savings, I can go on and on.

Here is a recap of what I finished in February:

Stash Bee - February
Pippy Longstocking for Tanya

Liberty & Justice - February
20.5" block for Vickie

Stash Bee - March
Churn Block for Emily (thanks to Emily who posted earlier today what she wanted for March)

Sew South Retreat - House Block

When I was at a retreat a month ago, I worked hard into the night on the #scrappytripalong that went viral on Instagram around the first of January.  This past weekend I finished sewing together the top and it is ready to be quilted.  I've never FMQ such a large quilt (72 x 84) before and I'm planning on sewing straight lines 1/4" from the seams.  This will be on my to do list for April while my husband is away turkey hunting.

Finally, I have a quilt done for 2013.  I'm always amazed at all the blogs that I read and how many quilts each blogger has already finished in 2013.  I guess I need to step it up a bit.

  1. Your polka dot quilt is just lovely. So bright and charming. Is the pattern Sparkle Plenty?

  2. Wow, i love the polka dot quilt, very high impact with the black background, gorgeous!

  3. Popping over from Fresh Sewing day. Love Pippi, and I'm going to SewSouth as well! See you later this month!

  4. Pippi is so cute and I really like your finished quilt - great pattern and fabric contrast.

  5. I love your sparkel quilt - the black dots are perfect!

  6. Fab quilt, love the colours, and great job on the bee blocks :o)

  7. I love your sparkle plenty quilt! It's gorgeous. And you've completed so many bee blocks too, that would take time away from completing as many of your own quilts as others do. Don't compare yourself!

  8. I really will see you in March. Yeah!

  9. love the polka dot quilt too..

  10. I'm in LOVE with Sparkle Plenty!!!
