Even with a headcold I managed to piece Feburary's block for Kristy's Sew On BOM. Seriously people, if I can manage this block without any unpicking when my brain is NOT functioning. Well, then I give it the stamp of approval LOL Kristy's patterns are so well designed, very straight forward and the end result is always impressive. How does that girl do it? :)
I'm going with a bit of a colour scheme here are my January and February blocks together.
The other pretty finish that I achieved this week was a set of pillowcases for a lovely lady.
They are to match the triangle quilt she bought from me late last year :)
I think they look lovely on my bed :)
They are made with the same fabrics as the quilt (I had to order more as I had used every last scrap of the originals). I personally thought it was a stroke of genius to bind them just the same as the quilt :)
Being a total novice, when I sent her the quilt I forgot to include a quilt bag. So I made one of those too :)
I kind of suspect her gorgeous daughter might steal this bag for her toys, but it is in the same colours as the quilt so she can always claim it is hers ;)
Do you like the writing? I had a lot of fun with that, it was a good way to practice some FMQ as I haven't had a whole lot of luck writing with my FMQ foot in the past. I'm really happy how it turned out this time, although in hindsight some tearaway stabliser on the back would have been a good idea.
Did you participate in the Sew On BOM this month? Don't forget to link up :) The March block will be up soon, I'm really looking forward to the next one :)
I'm linking up with February's Sew On linky party over at Quiet Play.
