February is looking good to finish something. Liking how this is turning out so far. It should be about 40" square after quilting.

January has been a slow month, workwise. But I have enjoyed trying some new techniques and just playing in general.
This is another layered collage that is stitched and then sections are cut away. I haven't quilted yet. In fact, haven't figured out how to finish yet.

I was just itching to play with these pretty wools, so I started this from one of Need'l Love books. 

I really needed to organize my fusibles, stabilizers, freezer paper, etc. I got some clear plastic at Joann's, Cut it in half, sewed some bias tape on the edges and put the two pieces together and stitched about every 4 1/2". Then I found one of those old trouser hangers and slipped it over the rod and hung it up. This project is finished!

This top is ready for quilting and is hanging in the "what was I thinking" section. Community quilt donation, probably.

I received a gift card for Quilted Threads, so I bought enough of these new "Stitch in Color" by Malka Dubrawsky to make a queen size quilt. It should go pretty fast, it is definitely all about the fabric.

I finally dug into my Shiva paintsticks and started stenciling some fabric for a small wall quilt. Thankfully, the paintsticks still work, I guess they will last a very long time.

Let's see what I finish in February!
