February finishes

Ok, I swear that yesterday was February 1st! Where did the month go and how did it slip by so fast? I didn't get to spend quite as much time as I would have liked to this month working on projects but I did manage to complete all but one of my finishes. The only one that didn't make it was my Valentine wall-hanging and no worries on that one now that I have nearly a year to get that one done!

All righty, on to the good stuff. I'm all caught up on my Saturday Sampler blocks. Yay! I had six kits in all to do and here they are. I'm a big fan of triangles on a roll and they came in handy with these blocks. By the time I was ready to assemble the blocks, I almost didn't care if my points were matching up anymore, I just wanted to get them done. The last kit turned out to be 36" strips that needed to pieced together which was a huge respite after completing the other ones. The strip will eventually be appliqued with leaves and acorns.

Last but not least are my two final heirloom blocks. Now that all of my blocks are done, I can't wait to get the quilt assembled!

your blocks look great - I really like where you are going with this - Pine Logs looks beautiful in your previous post.

When I first moved to TX in 2005, I was in a BOM that met once a month and did great Jan-Sept. Then in Oct. I got pink eye so I stayed home, November forgot to go on that day then in Dec was out of town. It took me a long time to get those 3 months made and caught up and...would you believe that I didn't get the quilt together until just before my twins were born in 2007. Needless to say, I no longer have time for BOM meetings :P

Thankfully I've found blogland and can visit many quilters for inspiration!

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
