Feb Finishes - March Starts

Hard to believe February has come and gone.  I've been waiting to post my february blocks til both my partners received theirs so here goes:

Block Swap AdventureLet's Bee Together

Squares within Squares
Quilter's Cache

Partners Choice

I've already received all the info for March's blocks, so I will get started on them as soon as I get rid of this nasty cold/cough bug that I caught that is apparently going around. UGH. I haven't felt like sewing or blogging for you know it must be bad!  But I forced myself to do one last post for February because I wanted to let you in on this sewalong I found over at Lilac Lane.

It's a cathedral window pillow Melissa made with pretty Valentine's colors.  Beautiful, huh!!
AND she's doing a sewalong!  I've wanted to try this pattern for a long time and thought this would be a nice "do-able" project to learn from.  Every Wednesday she'll post a step in the process.

I'm going to use this fabric that I've had sitting in my stash for about 3 years.  It's called Gypsy Princess by Hoffman California International.  I just love it and thought it would be perfect for cathedral windows.

Last wednesday we started the background.  I didn't get very far, only because I started getting sick and could no longer sit at my machine.   But I'll catch up soon enough I'm sure.

Anyway, if you're interested, here's a link to the supplies list.

Hope you join!  Now it's back to bed for me.

I hope you feel better soon, sounds like a bad cold if it is keeping you from quilting! Hey - I think you'd like browsing around at to see all the quilting links and projects posted there - it is good cold medicine!
