Sew Much to Show You

First off I told you yesterday was my 24th Wedding Anniversary.  We went to MGM Grand Casino...won a little...lost more...lol   Then we went out for a late lunch at Ruby Tuesday.  Lunch was delicious.  I was very surprised that my hubby got me a gift.



It is the sweetest little doll quilt.  It just has the top and backing and is tied. I really love it.  I always look for doll quilts while antiquing but haven't picked up many.  The ones I love are always very expensive.



I've got a few more finishes for February.



It is only about 9" x 11".  This was made out of left over triangle pieces from other projects.  





Here is my hatchet block quilt.  It is approximately 22" x 22"  I thought it could be a wall quilt or a table quilt.



Here is a close up of the quilting.  Very simple.  I first machine stitched in the ditch and then I quilted 1/4" away from the seam.  I like the way it turned out.




Here is my third row of blocks for the Temecula SAL.  I got another 2 bags of reproduction scraps from Homestead Hearth and have had fun using them for these blocks.


Last but not least...



I won a pdf of this quilt from Sharon at Fabrics and Flowers.  She is a very talented quilt designer and quilter.  You should check out her blog.


Well I have lots on my plate today.  The latest row directions for the Patchwork Posse Winter round robin has been posted....and the Monday Mystery has posted today's piecing instructions....and I would love to make a few more Log Cabin Bow Tie blocks made....and I'm going through my scraps and cutting 2 1/2" squares to try and doing Pat Sloan's Scrap Busting SAL.

Hmmmm  sounds like I've got a few more want to do's than time....lol

Hope you have a great start to your week.

Hugs, Cathy
