Snow, ice, sleet, and slush. Not what I call Spring. The weather here is so strange. But snow and cold makes for good sewing weather.
Here are my 1857 Sampler blocks for February. I had the first 3 done weeks ago. I had a real problem with the circles in the 4th block. I was in touch with Karen at Log Cabin Quilter and told her I was having a real problem with all the circles. She suggested using cardboard template....Light Bulb. I forgot that I had circle templates by Karen Kay Buckley. So I pulled them out, found the correct sizes, followed the directions that came with them and I had perfect circles. Two evenings of appliqueing and they were done.
I have been working on the Temecula Quilt Co. sew along. Not sure if I am going further with it. I kinda like it the way it is. I'm going to add a final gray border and I'll be done.
I have a finish.
I quilted it just doing vertical lines. I finished the binding today and then put it in the washer and dryer. I'm calling it "Gray Skies Churning". This is going to be a Christmas gift. One down and many more to go.
Hopefully our weather will clear up tomorrow. Hubby is going up to his parents to help clean up the snow. I am going out to lunch with my granddaughter Alecia. I just love it when we get together.
Have a great weekend. And stay warm and dry.
