Catching up with my February list.

It looks like I have accomplished most of my February list. I still need to work on my Leaders & Enders pieces and then I can start working on an old UFO, "Vintage Valentine".

These blocks are month 2 of "Civil War Tribute" I was in HST hell!

EDIT: YIKES! The top two rows on the top two blocks are turned upside down. Thank you Monica for letting me know. I will fix that next weekend.

This is month 6 of "Baltimore Bunnies"
I also did F-9 of "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler". I then attached it to the rest of the rows I have made.
I finished another 10 Klosjes as my lunch hour project. I am up to 55. I will wait until I have 200 to see how many more I will make.
These are the 5 blocks I planned on doing this month on "Farmer's Wife"




I am also going to start attaching the rows as I go.
Last, but not least. Here is my helper, Linda. She managed to get some quilt blocks to cover her this morning and took a nap.
I hope to have a finish to show you all next week. I sent a quilt out to C.J. and all I have to do is attach the binding. I may sneak that in during the week.

I want to again wish all of you a great week. Stay safe! Stay healthy! Be Happy!

Looks great as usual! I wanna be like you when I grow up. *wink*

I know what half square triangle hell feels like too so I hate to point this out. But I noticed that in the first pic, the top row of the first two blocks are on upside down.

*Hugs*

Your work is beautiful. I love your quilts in progress. Hugs

You have gotten so much done once again Yvette. I'm still in a holding pattern with my month two blocks. I'm hoping tomorrow. With the recent warmer weather we've had I've been doing cleaning and organizing instead. It's snowing like heck here now though, so maybe I'll get some quilting in later.

I'm really amazed at what you accomplish during the week!

Love all your blocks and love that you love doing so many projects at once..just like me!

Carrie P. said...

Well, you have been very busy too. Yes, that is a lot of HST for those blocks.
Oh, the little rabbit is so sweet holding the bird nest. You have a great week too. I will be working on more projects too.

I have thought of doing the farmers wife quilt since I live in an old farmhouse of that period, but I wondered are there any sources for the paper pieced blocks that you know of? yours is beautiful.

Wow is right Yvette! So many fabulous blocks. Great idea to sew your rows together as you finish.

Kim said...

You're amazing. It's so cool to see how improved you're quilting skills have become. Linda's a sweetie!

Terry said...

ROFL @ HST hell! Been there, done that! Love your Baltimore bunny block! :0)

Karen said...

You are the Quilting Queen this week. So much to share!

Darlene said...

You've definitely had a very productive month - lots of great eye candy. :-)

marina said...

lovely to see your items on your list. Those baltimore bunny blocks are so cute! Your farmer's wife blocks are just gorgeous.
Will look forward to seeing your finish.

Theresa said...

What a beautiful array of blocks. I feel your pain with the HST - I seem to have a lot of those to make lately too. Always glad to see somebody else with a multitude of projects on the go :)

LuAnn said...

I love that you have so many things going at once. I think that's what keeps quilting interesting. I found a mistake in one of my RRCB blocks by looking at a photo of it, too. Love your bunny applique'.

donna said...

Wow I thought I had alot of projects going. Like how you have your time all organized. Your blocks are just beautiful. Can not wait to see more.

Karen said...

Monica has good eyes! The bunny block is really cute and 55 klosjes already, I forgot about mine and best be making a few more. Beautiful bride and LOVE the Farmer's Wife blocks. Lots of lovely fabric. Your little helper Linda is as sweet as they get!

Fiesta said...

wow, you definetly were busy. Everything looks fabulous!

Wendy said...

Wow you've really been busy, all the blocks look fantastic. Linda is a big help too. My cat likes to slide through my blocks laying on the floor.

ranette said...

You are just going to town with all of your projects! Love the CW sampler blocks and of course, your SBS is lovely.

I think you are my quilty twin cause I like everything you make!

Robin said...

Isn't it funny how sometimes we make a mistake and don't even realize it? Half-square triangles can do that to a person. :P

All of your blocks are lovely! It is fun seeing them as they come together in rows. I'm looking forward to seeing your latest finish (hurry up and get that binding on!). :)

Linda said...

Great finishes...I love the colors on the bridal sampler! You do such wonderful work!!

Sue ♥ said...

love all of your blocks, I can't believe you have so many lovely quilts on the go,I think I might have to pop bag frequently to check up on your progress....nice eye candy

CJ said...

Wow, you've been keeping yourself really busy. I love the colours you've chosen for Sylvia's quilt.

I didn't even notice the HSTs until you pointed them out.

I hope you're not getting the snow predicted for California and are staying nice and toasty warm.

You've been busy over here!! WOW you have alot going on don't you? :-)

Kim D. said...

You gave me a chuckle with the HST Hell.. That's how I feel about too many HST's. LOL Love the Baltimore Bunnies block again this month, it's so cute with the little birdie. Your projects are all wonderful, way to go on the progress.
