A Whole Lot to Catch Up On

Valentine's Day
is almost here.
That means the month is nearly half over so I've worked super hard this week to catch up
all the challenges and blocks I'm involved with so far this year.

But first, instead of throwing out old free motion quilting practice fabric and because you can never have too many, I recycled and made myself a little pincushion.


  The heart pins are regular straight pins with buttons glued on the heads with E6000.
A sew simple quick finish.

I finished up the  Project Quilting Season 7 Challenge 3 challenge with Swirling Thread.


Voting for favorites ends today.  Swirling Thread is #45.
Another challenge will be announced Sunday, then I won't be caught up anymore...lol

Do you keep track of your works in progress by organizing in some way?
I like to keep everything I'm working on for the year in a notebook.

This is the 365 Challlenge.
I am ALL caught up and have made a 3 1/2" block for everyday this year.


Tiny pieces galore!!

Another 2016 project is the


Each month features a different board game and I will have a super sweet quilty gift at the end of the year, just in time for Christmas.

February's block is Nine Men's Morris.
It is a new game for me and I will have to research it a little.


This month's technique was paper piecing and I'm linking up before the end of the month...WINNING!

started this month and I couldn't wait to use my Riley Blake fabric.



Join this Block of the Month for free patterns and lots of prizes!!!!
I'll be linking my blocks up before the last day of the month on this one too!!!

I can't wait to share the blocks (another finish this week) I designed for this Block of the Month
but it will have to wait until May.  

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Wow! A loooot of projects! And I love that you print all of them and keep them well organized in folders. I can never do that, I save everything in my computer as those are easier for me to search! Great job with all of the projects, I really love your entry for the PQ challenge (I voted for you ;) )
Thanks for linking the Nine Men's Morris board!

You are one busy lady! Love your blocks in the binder. I have that for my crochet patterns, but not quilting. I guess I will get another binder. Your garden blocks are just adorable.
