February Round -Up

I can't believe it's the end of the month already.  It feels like only a few days ago I was writing up the January Round-Up, but no, here we are, about to enter March.

It's been a funny old month sewing wise.  I haven't had as much time to sew as I would have liked, due mainly to my aged father being unwell and having to take him to doctor and hospital appointments and generally keeping an eye on him.

Here's what I've done this month:

  1. One mini quilt started and completed  (blogged here).
  2. One 12" block to complete the blocks for my 2012 BOM quilt (blogged here).
  3. Six 12"  blocks for my 2013 Combined BOM quilt (blogged througout the month)
  4. Ten 12" blocks to complete the blocks for my Scrappy Trip Around the World.

So, that's one mini quilt and 17 quilt blocks for this month.  I had wanted to make a start on some Farmer's Wife blocks but never got round to it.  Hopefully this month I will.  Hmm, I think I said that last month!

  1. I love your scrappy trip quilt! Lovely use of fabrics. I'm sorry to hear your father's been unwell. Fingers crossed he makes a quick recovery and that you can get in some more sewing time. :-)

  2. Ohh I am really trying to resist the lure of the scrappy trippy quilts i keep seeing! I know it would end in destroying my unusually start-of-the-year neat fabric piles and material all over the floor which in Feb with mucky dog feet everywhere would not do! Yours is a beauty! Keep going with the Farmers Wife, i found there was a tipping point when cutting out those template bits stopped being such a mental block!

  3. The colours on your scrappy quilt remind me of Victorian tiles, so pretty. I'm impressed with how much you manage to achieve in a month.

  4. The star blocks are amazing.

  5. Love your trip Around the world quilt. lovely!

  6. Beautiful blocks, and such a great scrappy trip along!

  7. Great scrappy trip around the world. I am resisting doing that one until I actually finish something.

  8. I looove your scrappy trip blocks! And all the other ones, of course :) I'm just really crushing on all the scrappy trips lately!

  9. That is some nice progress in one month. Your scrappy trip looks great. Hope your father gets well too.

  10. I love the scrappy trip along colours. Great progress for February.

    Hope your dad feels better soon x
