Long and Photo Heavy

I was hoping to get back to posting more often but that dreaded virus that has been going around visited my house.  First my husband had it and then I got it.  He's feeling fine and I am on day 10.  Feeling better but still not back to normal.

Any way I got a lot done this month.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown.

This block was much easier to make than it appears.    Be sure to stop by and see what my fellow conspirators are up to.

KarenNanetteJennieRobin, and Rebecca.

2.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt.

I'm working on this quilt with Julie.  She thought Mary Brown would be too much (and she was right).  This is a quilt I've been wanting to do for a while.

3.  Cheddarback Quilt.

This photo is a little blurry.  This is month 10 so we are coming to an end.

4.  Derby House.

This month we had both pieced and an applique block.  I really love the plaids.  I can't wait to get February's patterns and fabric.

5. Pat Sloan's Out West.

Once again I said I wasn't going to join in another sew along....hee hee.  For this quilt I purchased one of the recommended FQ bundles from the FQ Shop.  The blocks are 12". 

6.  Quilt Doodles BOM.

I will be doing this in reds and lights.  This block consists of 4 10" blocks.  So there will be 12 - 20" blocks.

7.  Barbara Brackman's Yankee Notions.

 I'm going to be using neutrals for this quilt.  The blocks are 12"

I think that is it.  But who knows.

I did get a mini quilt finished.

This quilt was started a couple of years ago.  Don't know why it was never finished because all it needed was a little bit of hand quilting and the binding.

Well that's it for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

I finally finished my Celebrating Mary Brown block.

The light of the flash made some of the stems look blue.  They are really dark green.  I'm so glad to have this finished.

Here are all the blocks I have made so far put together.  I am loving how this is looking.  BUT....I have a long way to go.

I had started a quilt kit I got from Bluprint.  Yesterday I finished the top.

My hubby is holding it up.  I'm hoping to get this quilted by the end of the month.  It will be a cheerful quilt.

I am working on these blocks again.  I want to make a quilt for my bed using them.  I made another block yesterday making a total of 9 blocks.

I need to make 33 more blocks for my quilt.

My New Year started out sewing.  I'm looking forward to a healthy year and making lots of quilts. I'm hoping to do more posts this year.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
