February Sewing: A month in Review

Thanks to Sarah's challenge over on Berry Barn Designs 4x7 Sewing Challenge I have spent a lot more time on sewing activities this month.  Granted, some have just been fabric pulls and trying to narrow down palettes for a couple upcoming quilts, but I also finished a couple items that have been waiting to be completed.

I made this pouch over the summer at a Fun Friday Class at my local quilt shop. All I needed to finish it was add the button!  Well, last weekend, I finally went through my buttons and found one that worked.

I did a little more stitching on my skate.  I have realized we don't have enough light in my living room in the evening for stitching on this.  I am trying to figure out a way to use my Ott light there without blinding my husband! LOL

I squared these blocks up and got them all put together.  I have the last two borders to put on, the back to piece and I hope to get it quilted this weekend. Mandi was inspecting my work.  This will be my first free motion quilting outside of practice sandwiches, so fingers crossed!

Now, the next has been one of the most time consuming, I have been trying to decide on the background for these fabrics!  I think I have decided, but would love to hear other opinions, white, black or grey?

I finished handquilting and bound my log cabin block listed in my goals from the beginning of February.

I also had an awesome time last weekend in all of the #quiltnon2016 activites on Instagram. I finished the little Pixie Basket, using some of my favorite Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

 I also completed six of the seven block tutorials that were posted for the challenges and I also made Lori Holt's Instagram camera block.  

  It has been a great month of sewing! Thank you for the challenge.


  1. You got a lot done this past week. I love your pixie basket. The 6 blocks are GREAT!!!

  2. Thanks! This is actually two week's worth of sewingness. LOL I missed linking up last week.

  3. Love the pixie basket, I am bound and determined to make one soon! I love the pic of your kitty inspecting your work, mine likes to supervise as well! Lol. Good luck with the FMQ, I feel like starting is the hardest part. I'm sure you'll do great! :)

  4. I'll have to look ahead and see what background you picked, Kim, but I hope it was black! Do you have the little Ott or just a floor one? I have the small (idk - 15" maybe?) one and it's great for something like moving to the end table while you're stitching on the couch.
