Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

February Wishes Block

It took me two weeks to get to it, but I finally have the February block put together for the Wishes Quilt Along, sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop/Jolly Jabber. I didn't dare let myself put aside the Burgoyne Surrounded quilt, for fear that I'd not go back to it!

February Block
I'm using a vintage fat quarter pack of Fig Tree fabrics called A Day in the Country. And I have to say I really love the look I'm getting with these blocks in this fabric. It's turning out to be a great combination. Yay!

This month's block was decidedly more complex than last month's. Compare just 16 pieces in January's block with 96 pieces in February's! Whoa, Nellie!! They were smart to make the first block so easy; that sucked me right in. Oh well, it's just one block, and it took me just one evening. Not so bad.

January's Block


January and February blocks, side by side
Won't this be a pretty quilt? I've never seen a Fig Tree quilt I haven't liked!! So exciting!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
