WIPS February Update

I have given up the idea that I will blog regularly. Life is not going to allow that.

Since the beginning of January I have finished some of my WIPS that carried over from 2012.

King Swoon - done and on my bed.
Puzzle Boxes Twin Quilt - done and on my eldest sons ned.
Flea Market Fancy Sweet Starlet - done and on  my kitchen table
Lone Starburst - done and hanging on my living room wall.

I keep waiting for a somewhat warm winter day in Iowa to take photos of them all outside. But so far no luck :(

WIPS
Granny Squares - I have two blocks hand quilted - no additional progress in months





Mama Said Sew Triangles - I am straight line quilting this right now. I had hoped to finish it this past weekend but was under the weather so still working on it. My faithful cat is constantly sitting on the quilt as I work and is very annoyed with me when I push him off.

I finally got around to making my Summer Sampler from Freshly Pieced. I dug through my stash for some Sweetwater, DS Quilts and others. This is waiting to be quilted.






A few weeks ago I received my copy of American Patchwork and Quilting in the mail and saw this quilt.
 
I started collecting owls this fall and was so excited to find a pattern for quilt. This one used 2.5 inch stripes. I want to downsize the pattern to create a smaller version maybe for a table topper. I used more fabric scraps and stash.
 


 
As you can see from some of the photos I had to put cutting mats and rulers across the quilt. This was to prevent my cat (see above triangle quilt photo) from jumping on all the fabric strips and tossing them in the air. grrr.

Your owl is fabulous. I love the fact you used owl fabric to make it. So cool.
