For a short month, didn't February just seem to drag on? Maybe it was all the snow storms, wind, cold, and just plain stuck inside! Luckily there was lots to play with.
My project for NEWFO was the Super Bowl Sunday Mystery hosted by my own LQS - The Quilt Bug. Kris never fails with her mysteries and this was so much fun. AND it used up some of my scraps and 'waiting for the right project' fabrics. I did change up some of the sashing settings, but this was the first time I had put a flange in a quilt - I usually skip those, but it really did add to the pop of the quilt. This is waiting for some quilting inspiration and the scrap fabric is bagged with it as I think some coasters and trim to some towels will make this a great Christmas present bundle.
I did finish up my Something Old project. This was a Temecula Quilt Co. quilt along early last year - I think it was called 'five by five'. I had to machine quilt it as the thickness of felt batt and heavier backing (I like to use those with a wall hanging so they lay nice against the wall) just made hand quilting impossible.
And I used this piece for my Something New and Let's Book It project. This is also in the pile of 'to be quilted'. This may get used for a donation for one of the many 'auction' fund raisers for our community needs.
And I was tickled to play in my scraps and cutsie fabrics to make three doll quilts to donate to the Get Your Mrs Claus On project.
Maybe it was good that February dragged and was snowy - it was such a pleasure to work on all these projects and have some of my donations ready.
