One Step Closer to Spring

It's March 1st.  Spring is just around the corner.  Well, as soon as the snow melts.

I've got a few projects to share with you.  I finished my Temecula Sew-a-long.

This was so much fun.  I used fabrics I got in Scrap Bags from Homestead Hearth.  The border has gold and beige running through it.  This is now on the pile of tops to be quilted.

The second project is one of the current Quilts by Cheri SAL.

As you can see it is basted and ready to be hand quilted.  I plan on using #12 pearl cotton to quilt it.  The blocks are 2 3/4".  

Well it is time to choose the next 3 UFO's to work on.

1.  My Primitive Primer Quilt.

This is only a portion of what I have done.  I need to make 2 more blocks and then sew all the blocks together.  I've been working on this since 2011.

2.  My 2011 EQ7 BOM.

I only made 9 blocks.  Although I don't plan on making any more blocks I do want to figure a setting and then get this baby quilted.  I used batiks and hand dyed fabric in these blocks.

3.  Hexagon Table Quilt.

A while back I bought the template to make half hexagons from charm squares.  It is amazing how quickly it went together.  I would like to finish this and then machine quilt it.

Later I need to link up with Carrie for March UFO Busting.

The winners were drawn for the "Dear Emma" book giveaway.  They are listed on the previous post.  I also emailed them asking for addresses.

Well I hope it is warmer where you are.  I woke up to 26 degrees.  It has warmed up to 33 degrees however it is really windy and feels much colder.

It's off to the sewing room...I'm working on the latest row for the Patchwork Posse Winter Wonderland SAL.

Hugs, Cathy

Oh my gosh, Cathy!!! What a inspiration you are with all your delightful projects. Thanks for sharing.

We had 9 inches of snow 2 days ago now more snow this morning...even though this has been a mild winter, we are ready for spring.

Have a fun in your sewing room!

Your Temecula quilt turned out just great! I'm trying to decide how to quilt mine.
I like the way you did your little nine-patch in blues. I think mine got a little too busy in the color department for something so small.
I love the batik quilt you will be finishing up. Very pretty fabrics and colors!

Your quilts are beautiful. Love the hexagon's. Well we know we are in Texas when yesterday it was in the 50's and today in the 70's. Hope you have a great week.

Love your Temecula quilt and your little 9 patch. I got some of the Homestead Hearth Scrap bags too. Aren't they fun?
