Marching on

Well, time soldiers on.  Today I'm going to post my work from today, and from Jan/Feb to share with the blog meet at Lily's Quilts.  So sorry if you've seen it already.  In a burst of energy while the recipient of this gift was visiting, I finished up binding the table topper.

And here's a shot with the backing fabric

The true colour lies somewhere in the middle of this two pictures.

I also did this week's block for the Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL.

Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL. Block #11

I foundation pieced this puppy.  I am planning on taking part in the New York QAL which involves paper piecing (yipes) so we'll see which I like better.  I ended up ripping a lot of seams while sewing those four squares to one-another and I am still not ecstatic with the results.  But, from a distance--looks great!

Here's the whole kit and caboodle together, only one more block!

January saw two baby quilts:

SIL's Baby Quilt

Boy's Baby Quilt

February saw a Quilt top made with some fabric my sister brought home from Africa--this quilt is for her. Also, the table topper from above!

I'll be linking up with Sew n' Tell and Lynn's Blog Meet.
