Another Chilly Day

 It warms up for a day or two and then we're back to freezing weather.   That makes for good sewing weather.

I've been busy.  I finished quilting 2 quilts and made my February mini.  Caught up on a BOW and finished the first block of the Aviary BOM.  I loved it so much I made it the photo at the top of my blog.  Here we go....

1.  February mini.

This is also a UFO that was about 3 years old.  I came across it while digging around in my sewing room.  I had to hand quilt it and bind.  It is a Cheri Payne pattern.

2.  I took another photo of my January APQ UFO.  This one is much better.

3.  Last month I made a Fig Tree quilt called Acorn Woods.  I made the top but didn't have time to quilt it.

I really love how this turned out.  

4.  The next quilt is another Fig Tree Pattern.  It was a 2021 BOM called "Sparkles and Cream".  I had 2 months left to finish.

As you can see they are very low volumn fabrics.  I was so happy to get it pieced, quilted and bound.  This quilt was my APQ UFO #7 for February.

5.  Aviary BOM.

This BOM was designed to be done in wools.  I really don't have any, so I chose to do mine in cottons.  I can't wait for the next block.

6.  Pat Sloan's "Sweet Dreams" BOW.

These are blocks 1-8.  

All in all I've had a productive month.  Looking forward to my March projects.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you found something you like.

February Chill

 It's been cold and it's been snowing.  The perfect weather for sewing.  I managed to get a few things done this first week of February.  First up, I had my check-up with the urologist.  I have to have a cystoscopy every three months for 2 years.  Tuesday I had a cystoscopy and it showed my scar is healing nicely and there are no growths.  Yeah!  On Friday I had a check-up with my GP and she said my sugars are looking good.  I had blood tests done and was told I to come back in 6 months instead of 3 months.  Another Yeah!

Now for the sewing.

1.  Pat Sloan's Sweet Dreams BOW.

2.  Autumn Frolic.

3.  Red and Green Quilt. 

 4.  The APQ UFO for this month is #7.  My #7 is Fig Tree's Sparkle and Cream BOM.  I had 2 months left to do.  I have a third of it put together.

It's made up of Low Volumn fabrics.  Today I work on the next third.

5.  Aviary BOM

This is a BOM offered by Dawn Heese and Bonnie Sullivan.  It is now a closed group.  We just got the first block's instructions.  It was designed to be a wool applique quilt.  I decided to do it using cottons.  I have to reverse the applique patterns.  It's going to be a beautiful quilt.

That's it for now.  Thank you so much for stopping by.
