I'm bouncing back and forth between two projects that I want to get done this month.  First is the BOM for 'It's a "Wild" Life'.  I had pulled the fabrics and traced the pattern pieces on Heat N Bond and they are cut out.  But I discovered I only traced one set, not two as I'm making 2 quilts.  So now that's back on the list.  

My friend Deb sent a few pictures of her chickens so I could pick a picture to use in the quilt I'm making her.  I'm trying to make it a surprise, but since I asked for pictures, I think she is guessing.  Here is the picture I went with.  Since we have a cheap printer, the color isn't the best.

But I think it will blend well with the fabrics.  Check out her barn quilt!  I used Colorfast fabric sheet.  I have used this before and I like how it sews.  I'm excited to get this finished!

Play With Fabric

Play with fabric or also known as search stash for fabric.  I came up with the fabrics I'm using in my "It's a 'Wild' Life" BOM.    These are the deer fabrics.

I even have the pieces traced on to Heat 'N Bond.  Check out the background that is all made up!

Again some golden oldie fabrics.  I can hardly wait to see what this looks like!

Oh My Goodness!

Oh My Goodness!  I have pink eye!  It started yesterday and I stayed home today, but I'm heading back to work tomorrow.  Just have to be sure I don't touch my eye.  Or forget to wash my hands if I do.  It's been years since I've had this.  Not exactly sure how I got this as we don't have any children at school with it currently. 

As a result of hanging at home today, I finished Polo.

Look at that beautiful blue sky!  It's been so cloudy and dreary, it was nice to see the sun and the beautiful blue sky as a background for my new quilt top.  Soon the grass will green up and Spring will be here!

Narrow Borders

The narrow borders are done on Polo, a pattern by Villa Rosa Designs.  Two of the wider borders are pinned on and ready to sew!

Finally, this quilt is getting ready to go to the finish line.  I got two quilts pinned, so I have more than enough to keep me busy this month.

I love when I get an opportunity to have a place to pin my quilt tops so I can get them quilted.  You may remember that I made another quilt like this last summer.  I got the two tops sewn, but only one quilted and done.  I hope to make it two very soon!
