I finished making this 2015 Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM quilt. I love the bright red borders and the 30's looking fabrics (some of them). This is my OMG (One Monthly Goal) for February.
I'm putting the binding on my 2016 Quilt Doodle Designs BOM quilt. this quit is so cute. The binding is not the last step. I have to put all the buttons on and the label. Don't expect a Friday Finish just yet. I used a sheet I got at a thrift store for the back. It's not 100% cotton, but it's so soft!
I'm keeping up with Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge. Here's Block #9 of 25. It is called Among the Stars. I made the center block solid instead of pieced. Some of the blocks I made with flying geese vs. HST's. From across the room the has the same design as Pat's. Finished size of this block is 32".
More leaves were added to my to-go project (pattern by Kim Diehl.) I stitched down some of the circles for the flowers too. I faithfully carry it with me in my to-go bag. I'm having a truck recall repair done tomorrow. I expect all the circles to be sewn down!
I made three microwave bowl cozies. Here's a picture of two of them. I used RSC17 Feb. colors.
It looks like I missed a WIP Wednesday last week. Here's what happened the week before...
I finished block #8/25 called Never Endling Love. It is the next block that goes with the ones I posted last week. You can read more about this Pat Sloan designed block here.
Except from the quick microwave bowl cozies (a couple of pic above) I'm still refraining from starting new projects. I rewarded myself with a few new toys to help me with some upcoming finishes. These are templates that I use with my longarm. I bought them when R&S Design had a sale earlier this year. I LOVE Circle Lord products, but sometimes I also buy boards from R&S.
I made two blocks for the Block Lotto. Here's the block we are making this month. It's called Dutchman's Puzzle. You can find the info to make this block this month here.
Here's a cute little Valentine Table topper in the snow:
A friend from church gave me a bunch of "stuff" The things I don't use/keep will be donated to my local quilt guild.
I did not have any grand finishes this week. BUT I did not start any new projects except for the microwave bowl cozies that are DONE!!!
