February UFO's

At the beginning of the month I joined Carrie for some UFO Busting.  My goals were:

1.  Make an additional 10 blocks for my Log Cabin Bow Ties.  I did not plan on finishing it.

I started out with 26 blocks and managed to make an additional 6 blocks.  Not sure how big I want this quilt to be.  It will be an on going project.

2.  I wanted to finish the applique on my Henrietta Whiskers quilt and then to baste the quilt for hand quilting.

I did finish the applique.  Also added my initials and the year.  It is hand basted and I will start hand quilting it next month.

3.  I wanted to pin baste, machine quilt and bind my Autumn Plus quilt.

A FINISH!!!!  This will be going in the mail next week to Hubby's friend. 

So I only have one finish but I did accomplish most of what I wanted to do.  I have already gone through my list of UFOs and have picked the 3 I want to work on for next month.

I've not only been trying to do some UFO Busting, I've also been starting new projects.

I finished my American Jewels quilt top.

I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I need to purchase some backing and binding fabric.  This quilt was made from a Layer Cake.

I recently purchased some quilt batts.  I got 5 Thermore queen size quilt batts by Hobson for $9.00 each.  They are none bearding and thin.  I love to use thin batts for my wall quilts.

I got them on clearance at Jo-Ann's.  I just love a bargain.

Just wanted to show you what I have hanging on the living room wall.

I'm sure I've shown this before.  I made it while living in the U.P. taking care of my Dad.  It was made for my husband for Christmas 2008.  The pattern was a Fons and Porter pattern.  The patterns were stretched out over a year in their magazine.

Don't forget about my giveaway....

You can enter the giveaway here.  You have until February 28th.  I will draw 2 winners on March 1st.

We are expecting a major snow storm here today.  It has already hit in the southwest and midwest.  So I am going to hunker down in the sewing room.  I want to finish my Temecula SAL quilt top.  And I have a few other projects to work on.

Stay warm and have a great week.

Hugs, Cathy

I like the string quilt. So scrappy looking. And graphic.

The older Country Threads books are a treasure trove of quilt patterns. I think I have them all.
