To-Do #1

For the first month participating in a block-of-the-month sew along, we love our green block.  All the details were shared just a few days ago in the Color of the Month Block Connection post.  Now that it’s February, we can start working on the pretty pink block.

To-Do #2

The first of four Dr Seuss quilts to be made this quarter is finished.  Are you tired of hearing about them already?  We used a navy solid Kona for the sashing, borders and binding.  Quilting consists of good ole straight line stitching with my walking foot in both directions for a diamond-shaped crosshatch design.  My favorite!

To-Do #3

Ooh, the February Bee Hive block is a fun one!  It’s called Fizzy for our ‘queen’ Amanda, and this is her sample.  On the right are our fabrics.  I love that pink dotted fabric on top – I have never seen that before!!  I wonder what and when we picked that up?!  This is a good use for it though.  I’ll be tracing some half circles and giving them a try.  Fingers crossed.

February OMG

Our February goal with Patty at Elm Street Quilts is to complete a quilt top from the Make Mine a Double quilt block.  These fabrics have been chosen, and they provide us much inspiration!  Also, here’s the layout of our test block.


To-Do for the week of February 4th through 10th

  1. Follow week 5 & 6 directions for Hidden Star
  2. Continue working on Make Ours a Double
