First Finish for February

My first finish for February is my Abundance Quilt.

Again, a big thanks to Lori at Humble Quilts of another wonderful quilt-a-long.

I also got my blocks done for the Country Threads Sampler Quilt BOM.

Each month you make 2 blocks.  A 12" and 6" block.

Temecula Quilt Co. posted the next row of blocks on Friday.

Again I am using the fabric scraps I received from Homestead Hearth.  The strips of fabric that I have between the rows are from I jelly roll I got from Connecting threads.  I really like the way this is looking.

I'm not sure if I told you...I am participating in a Quilt-a-Long with Kathie @ Kindred Quilts and Sandy @ Loves to Quilt.  Each month we are making a small quilt from "Simply Charming" by Tara Lynn Darr. 

This is my February quilt, "Grannies Scrap Box".  It took 2 days to cut it out and one day to sew it together.  Now I need to sandwich it, quilt it and bind it before the end of the month.  There are some really sweet quilts in this book.

Today is Superbowl Sunday for my hubby.  For me it is Supersew
I plan on making some Log Cabin Bow Tie blocks today.  

The sun is shining here in Michigan, although it is really cold out and snow on the ground.  So keep warm, enjoy the game, get some sewing done and come back and visit again.

Hugs, Cathy

Abundance looks wonderful!
I love seeing your Temecula quilt in the making. I have yet to start this one--but I will.
I have my scraps stacked and waiting on the cutting board to make a Simply Charming quilt. Wish I was as far along as you are. : )

Love your Simple Abundance...your Temecula rows and Country Threads blocks are wonderful. And your Simply Charming little quilt is precious.

Love your projects. The first one is my fave!

We haven't seen sun here for well over a week. It's been snowing nonstop since last Wednesday! ;-) We are reportedly going to see the sun on Wednesday.....

You have been busy!!! Love all the projects you've done!

Sharon said...

All of your projects look so good! You've really gotten a lot done. Love your Abundance quilt.

And thanks for the heads-up on Country Threads' BOM. Didn't know they were doing that, and I LOVE anything Country Threads! I'll be checking into that one.

Your "Grannie's Scrap Box" is so fun. I can believe that it took longer to cut than to sew. Hee hee!

Your Abundance quilt is terrific and it sounds like you have been very busy in the sewing room. Love your fabric choices.

Here in northern Wisconsin we are having more snow tonight too. Stay warm and cozy!

You are for sure addicted to blocks! Love your Abundance quilt! Me too is making the Temecual sew along, and i'm very tempted to make the Abundance as well! You've got a lovely blog!
Hugs from Elin in Norway.
