February 2016 wrap-up

It's Leap Day!  It only comes once every 4 years of course, but this year it's a little more special because I'm doing the Quilty 366 challenge!  One extra Dancing Plus blocks to make for this year...  and, of course, I had the PERFECT fabric to use for my block!  I've had this adorable Dick and Jane fabric for a few years, and only cut little bits off of it every once in a while - but today was one of those days!  Now you want to see it, don't you?  Here it is:
The Dick and Jane books were some of the first books I read, and I wish that I still had them (I'd be rich!).  
The other thing about it being the 29th today means that I need to show you all the blocks I made for the month - all 29 of them. 
This is going to be one VERY large quilt!
And, finally, I have my RSC '16 blocks done for February - the colour for the month was brown, with the addition of pink if desired - and I had a few browns with pink in them, so I figured that they had to be used.  Before I actually started making these blocks, I thought that using black for the centers would be a great choice, because there's no way that Angela would pick black for a month's colour - but some of the fabrics I chose don't work so well with black... oh well.  It can only get better, right?  (March's colour is purple!)

I'm off to link up at SoScrappy and QuiltyFolk.
