Two Hearts in the Storm Quilt - OMG Finished!

On February 1st,  I linked up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal.  Here is my post hoping for a complete quilting and binding finish....

http://scrapboxquilts.blogspot.com/2017/01/two-hearts-in-storm.html


I worked hard and steady at it, used the walking foot and some FMQ with rulers play for the first time. It's hard to see in this fuzzy photo taken with an old camera.  Plus the blue print makes quilting hard to see.  Maybe that's a good thing.  The most important thing ...........  I enjoy  quilting it, even if it does look a bit amateur.


It is totally done and bears a label on the back.  It measured 75 x 92 after finishing.  I hope to get a better photo with a new camera at club Thurs night.

In the meantime I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the February finish link up.

I will also join other linky parties Tuesday with Connie at Freemotion By The River  and  Wednesday  with Susan at Quilt Fabrication and Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.  Be sure to visit all these links for great inspiration shared by other quilters.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

RSC17 - February greens

I'm afraid I didn't find any sea greens in my stash.  So, rather than go out and buy some,  I elected to work with aqua.   I don't have alot of aqua either,  but enough to put my project pieces together.  If Angela calls aqua as a color in a future month this year,  I'll just have to come up with another compromise.  LOL


Here are project parts for February,  the Over 60's block, with hand embroidery waiting to be done; some churn dash blocks, a crayon and some blocks for my newest start, titled elsewhere as Hidden Gems.  Right now I'm calling it 20 Triangles,  not very catchy eh?



I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy today.  Be sure to visit there to see what other quilters are creating with their  'sea green'  fabrics.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Moda's Be My Neighbor - Row 1

I spent the weekend working on the Be My Neighbor project.  It really goes together quickly.  I think picking thru the fabric choices is the time-eater here.  You can find the free project  HERE .

Here are the first four blocks .............  I know, I fudged block 3 with the tree, I 'WILL'  be replacing that faux pas with a correction.




I'm happy to link up with Connie at Freemotion By The River today.

On Wednesday, I'll be sharing with Susan  of Quilt Fabrication and Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts.

Be sure to visit all these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing today!
