SewConnected February

Let me start by saying how thankful I am for each of you. I've been a bit slow in responding to your comments - sorry. My secret project has been eating up my free time, and brain space :) I appreciate all your comments and kind words, and I will be getting to my reader to visit you soon - I promise!


This is my SewConnected block for Stefanie, a proud new mama to a son! You really should go congratulate her :) Stefanie sent solids to make a quilt for her boy - aren't the colors great!? Don't look too close at this block you will find lots of little things that don't make much sense! That's why I like having a plan and drafting out my blocks - less hiccups! In the end I am happy with it and hope that Stef is too.
And just in case you were wondering - here's the kitchen table while I'm busy at work! Keeping it real :) My ironing board has broken - so "yes, I iron on a towel at the table. . . "
On the right, draped over the chair is my wonky log cabin for a Notion or Two - it needs a bird. And then I will post properly :)

Oh Amy - Stefanie's block is outstanding! I don't know how it could be any better. That's something I needed to see too, I couldn't get my mind wrapped around using all solids in a quilt. Now I understand - it's just gorgeous!
