This is the February block for the Lucky Stars BOM from Don't Call Me Betsy. After After last month's unconventional fabric selection, I had no idea what to do with this one. I finally decided not to make a quilt but just to make something each month. Since we get the patterns in both 12 and 6" block sizes, this is especially cool for the BOM. Last month I made a journal cover from the 6" block and will have to find something to use the larger block for.
I decided I will turn this block into a pillow. I added a mitred corner border to make it a little bigger, but still might need another one. I love all the cheery polka dots and spring-y colors!
Our Sugar Block for February is also a paper pieced block. These blocks will eventually be a quilt for our screened porch. I am sticking with the aqua, olive and coral color scheme.
In other news, I got the most amazing package in the mail yesterday. A fabric bunting and sachet trio in my favorite Heather Ross Mendocino fabric from the Newtown Auction on facebook. I knew I bid on it, but was pretty sure I got beat out and was pretty sure I hadn't been invoiced for it, so I contacted Rachael, once I realized she was the winning bidder. I was so confused that something got messed up, or I missed an invoice! No, nothing like that, just an early baby pressie from sweet Rachael! Aren't quilty/bloggy friends the most generous, amazing people?!?!? Thank you, Rachael!!!
