February's quilt block

This morning I met some friends for a sit and sew and took my quilt block with me. It took lots of discipline on my part to sew rather than just look at everyone's work and talk but I did sew and completed my block for the month. I'm now thinking about which block to do for March. The one that I might do next is a basket with flowers and a ribbon with a bow on the handle of the basket. There are also pieced blocks in this quilt but for now, I'm enjoying the applique process. It is so relaxing.
This Sunday I'm going to start the doll dress for February's bead journal project. I didn't have any red silky fabric in my stash so I bought a yard the other day while I was at JoAnn's. My thoughts for this project are long dress, full skirt, beaded heart, lots of beading at the waist and on the bodice of the dress. I'll post a photo as soon as I finish the dress.


  1. I sat next to Gita today at the sit and sew group, and this block is even nicer in person! I love the juxtaposition of the different plaids. It's been awhile since I did applique, and I felt a tug to get back to it after seeing this nice block.

  2. This is so lovely - I really like your choice of fabrics, the colours complement each other beautifully. It must be really nice to sit and sew something like this in the company of friends.
