I thought that i"d take a few minutes to share a recent finish and a special project.
I bought the fabric for this first quilt about 12 - 15 years ago at Fabricland. It was great quality and I knew that it would become a quilt, just not sure what or how. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and I saw a quick and easy quilt picture on Jo's Country Junction - and I knew what to do! The main fabric is "zoo" animals. I added sashing in Kona Blueberry and cornerstones in Kona Peach and bound it with the same Konas.
I've enjoyed seeing quilt pictures in the snow, so I took that quilt, and my Trip Around the World quilt from a few weeks ago, and headed out to my back yard. Hubby told me in the morning that we'd received about 8" of fresh snow overnight, so I grabbed my coat and boots and my 2 quilts and set out - into approx. 14" of snow and drifts... There's no way I could plod through that, so back to the house - there was a leaf rake - that would work wouldn't it? Haha - not really... I did knock down some of the deepest drift and soldiered on - hope it was worth the journey!

Angela's SoScrappy colour for February is also yellow. In January, I chose 2 different blocks to work with each month = Half Square Triangles and classic 9-patches. The HSTs will be combined with low volume fabrics; the 9-patches will use differing shades of the colour of the month (2 each of dark corners and 2 with light corners).

The first month of this new year is (thankfully!) behind us - and we are one month closer to spring. I just wanted to quickly share what I worked on and finished this month:
Canuck Quilter (Joanne Kerton) designed a temperature quilt last year - and I decided that this is the year that I am going to make one. I bought all the fabrics, and have the first month done!
And finally, I quilted 2 quilts that I had pieced in the fall - along with a bit of a typo in one of the fabrics! The first quilt is a (planned) scrappy Trip Around the World, and the second is made of leftover jelly roll strips from another project.
