Quilted February

   That was my major objective for February....quilting a lot.  I actually got more done than I expected. I had 4 quilt tops waiting to be quilted, and two of them are done.  

  Something old:   
   It's not really old, but it has been hanging around a few months. The Buzz Saw quilt, aka The Whopper. All the quilting is done, and thread tails hidden.  Binding is cut and ready to attach.

Something new:
Frosty Morn is quilted as of last night...just under the wire.

    I was a little undecided on how to quilt this one.  It ended up with feathers through the light area, and wavy lines in the frosty color area.  The border portion was quilted with "jester's hat" swirls.....the border print made that an easy choice.
   Using the three different motifs on this worked better than expected really.  And now I have a good quilting motif sample for I am keeping this one.

Frayed edge technique......
   Finally washed and fluffed.  These are the 2 samples for the technique demo for guild in March.

March is here.  So a few plans are needed.

  • Bind the Buzz Saw.
  • Bind Frosty Morn.
  • Pin the Floral string quilt.
  • Add borders to Mid-winter Dreams.
  • McTavishing lessons at Freemotion Quilting Adventures   This starts on Monday.
  • Bite the bullet....since the bug bit me to join the Book It! at Vroom's Quilts  This will be my something for the month. 
     I put off jumping in on  Let's Book It! sew along, but this book kept falling on the floor.  I figured it was telling me  it was time to join the fray and pick a project.  So I cut some strips this morning that hopefully will get sewn this month. More on this one later.  
   I think I filled my plate up what's on your plate?

I love that book! Looking through it is a cure for whatever ails you. So far for me it has just been inspiration but I know I'll have to make one of the quilts eventually.

I looked up the book and that looks very interesting. Lovely finishes for February.

All your work is just beautiful. You just have a way with color combinations like I've never seen. Your french roses are so pretty. I wonder if I could do something like that in a doll quilt. Hmmm, I might just try them out.
