From the get-go, I knew that I would not be replicating January’s level of productivity in February. There was just too much to do—and in a short month, at that. At the very least, I thought I could finish piecing the scrappy quilt top I have been working on. Right now, all 48 blocks are finished. I still need to sew those 48 blocks together, but I have seven more days before March comes in with its own set of expectations.
This quilt has been fun to work on because it features many fabrics I haven’t had an opportunity to sew with in the past. These prints—all beautiful in their own right—just didn’t fit into previous projects.
Most of what you see is from Anna Maria Horner and other Free Spirit designers ...
|This diamond is almost all Anna Maria Horner fabrics.|
Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton and Steel ...
|I love that Rifle Paper Co. floral with the periwinkle background. I used every |
last bit I had left over from my Circa 1870 quilt.
|I was happy that Alice made an appearance in these strips.|
Among others, like Lizzy House, Bonnie Christine, and Basic Grey.
|There are many, many points to match on bias edges when I sew these into rows. |
Wish me luck!
Of course, if you’re a stickler for deadlines, you might have a finish this week. I hope you’ll share it in this week’s linky!
