February's UFO Finish

Wow--by the hair of my chinny chin chin!  Thank goodness it's Leap Year and I got an extra day!

Actually, I did have this done on Monday, but couldn't find time to post it until now.  

This is a sampler quilt I designed for a Beginning to Quilt class I taught last year.  I usually don't quilt my samples until after the class due to the weight of hanging them. It's much easier to hang 'flimsies'.  But it was time to get it done.

I also got a few wallhangings finished over the weekend, although they aren't that old.  I had to do the machine appliqué and then quilt them.  The February and March quilts are from the Calendar book by Kim Schrader.

February Calendar Quilt

  I'm doing a monthly series based on her pattern.  They are a small enough project to get some good technique teaching and practice in and get them done! 

March Calendar Quilt

 I'm working a month ahead to miracles of all miracles happen…we get them done in time to hang in the month they are supposed to! 

Mission Accomplished!

I love your Summertime Fun quilt! I see a lot of possibilities for using up orphan blocks or theme fabrics in a setting similar to this with a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. What a fabulous idea! Thank you for the inspiration!
