It is the first of March so that means Audrey at Quilty Folk is ready for us to link up our Febraury Quilty 365 progress.
Remember, my blocks capture a 7 day week with Sunday being the top half of the HST, Monday through Friday are the circles and Saturday is the bottom half of the HST.
The first week: On Sunday I recovered my ironing board, Monday was grocery shopping (I am still trying to embrace more fresh veggies), Tuesday was a haircut (so much gray!). Thursday I used a piece of fabric from an entire quilt I sewed all the blocks only to decide I didn't like the color. By Saturday, I had purchased and resewn another entire set of blocks in navy blue fabrics.
Week 2: The red and turquoise prints are from two quilts I finished and Tuesday was a beautiful sunny day. The rest of the fabrics are just some I liked as I sorted through some scraps.
Week 3: This week I started working on a new Scrap-A-Palooza quilt. I pulled some old stash fabric for a March OMG project. I spent two days trying to lure a squirrel out of my fireplace and though I am a little late, I wanted to capture that this is the year of the Monkey. (Okay, it is really just an excuse to use monkey fabric on my quilt!)
Week 4: I finished up my Park Bench quilt this week. I also received some happy mail from a friend (who I think of every time I see a penguin), I started the Splendid Sampler on Wednesday, I sewed with friends on Friday and I began questioning my decision to start the Sampler by Sunday. The weather has been beautiful so things like birds and spring flowers are also in this block.
So this is my month of February all captured in fabrics! I have been pretty good about keeping up. The last week of the month I found myself days behind but I easily caught up one evening.
I started this quilt on January first and it is slowly growing on one of my design walls. I love how it is looking now that I have moved to a second row. I am looking forward to what March will bring!
There are so many other quilters working on this project. Each quilt is as unique as the quilter. I thoroughly enjoy seeing what everyone else is working on!
I highly suggest you check it out!
