OMG February - Big Fail :(

I didn't even get one block done :(

Time to take a breath, and make a new goal for March :)

Crossed for February Do Good Stitches

I had lots of fun making up this particular block - designed by Kelly

Crossed

I used up part of a jelly roll I have had for years - I think I will use the rest of the jelly roll and make up a few more blocks :) and see what I can come up with :)

FNSI | Show and tell | Wonky White Stars

Well, I had a good FNSI with my virtual sewing friends :) how about you, what did you do on your Friday Night?

I played with some blocks - I am the Host of CHERISH Do.Good Stitches charity quilting bee, and it was my turn for January.  I picked a 'wonky white star' in pinks/purples or blues/greens.  My intention is to make up two lap quilts

Here is what I have received - all stitchers have sent their blocks!
Wonky White Stars - Pink

Wonky White Stars - Blue




I think I will have a play around with the layouts and see what I like!  I am liking the arrangement of the Pink one, but not the layout of the blue one as much - will play some more!  I might even add a few more 6" blocks :)

FNwF | show and tell | Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail

Yay, another opportunity to spend time in the sewing room without any guilt LOL

Mr Fixit had his RDO on Friday, but was more than happy to do some work on his computer.  I know!!!  it was supposed to be his day off, but he gets so much work done at home because he is able to work uninterrupted  :) ......... anyway ............. that left me free to do whatever I wanted, so ofcourse I chose my sewing room .......... after a few household tasks were completed.

In previous years, I have participated in Block Lotto, and have been enormously lucky to win an embarrassing 3 times!  During last year, I only made 1 block, but as all the blocks will be 6 1/2" this year, I can see myself making more :)

During January, I concentrated on my Farmer's Wife Quilt and didn't get an opportunity to make January's block, but when I saw that February's block was a Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail, I  just knew I had to give it a go - I have always wanted to make a Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail block!

The colours for February are brown and a light background - perfect for me, as I have my Farmer's Wife Quilt fabrics handy :)

so here is my very first 6 1/2" Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail block for Block Lotto

Monkey Wrench/Snail Trail


I usually donate my blocks, since I have been lucky enough to win, but I REALLY like this block and the colour scheme, so I am putting my block in the draw :)

I think I will make another block in this same colour combination for my Farmer's Wife Quilt :)

I also got another sashing row cut, sewn and attached to my Farmer's Wife Quilt.


It is now wide enough to fit on a queen size bed - this next row will make it long enough :)

I actually made the following block using the templates
Block 26 - Cut Glass Dish

It really makes a difference using the rotary cutting instructions, and the magic 8 method of making the HSTs :)
