February Quilting Accomplishments

February has been an extremely productive month for me! I feel elated to have finished so much and to have worked on a bunch of tops that will become finishes in the next few months. I spent a couple Sunday afternoons quilting, which really helped get me closer to finishes.
I quilted this Modern Rose Garden quilt for Emilee.
I quilted up my Briar Rose quilt and finished the binding on it, just in time for the trunk show I did on February 16th.
I quilted this Frolic charm square quilt and finished the binding on it on February 18th, just in case I got to see the new baby I made it for. I'm excited to have it done and ready to gift.
I also quilted up this Frolic quilt to have on hand for another baby gift. It's super cute, but I don't have a baby to give it to just yet. It's another one off the UFO list.
I quilted and finished the binding on the Let it Snow batik quilt in time for the trunk show as well.

In addition, I also made this pillowcase for a throw pillow to match.

At the quilt retreat on Feb. 16th, I finished up the blocks for this Unwind baby quilt which uses the lazy angle ruler. I'll get it quilted up next month for another baby gift.
At the retreat I also pieced the top for my challenge quilt for a store sample. I need to get the borders on as it needs to be quilted by the end of March.
Challenge Quilt
I've been basting and sewing Hexies like crazy, so I made some cute little needle books to hold my needles in my hexie bags.
Hexie Needle Books made with Winding Ways fabric.
I also quilted a couple quilts for my friend Andrea. This is a flannel baby quilt in Sage King Tut & bottomline

An older flimsy of hers with the same sage combo, which worked very well.

I made this cute little table topper from the leftover blocks of my Briar Rose quilt. I quilted it up quick one night and put the binding on it. I'm working on the hand sewn binding.
Scraps from Briar Rose quilt made into a table runner.
I quilted up this little scrappy beach balls quilt top and sewed the binding on for another UFO finish. It's a doll quilt.
Scrappy Beach Balls
I also quilted and sewed the binding on this flannel Pink Animal Crackers quilt made with leftovers from mom's stash. Another UFO checked off the list!

When I made the pillowcase from the Let it Snow batik, I had a big rectangle left, so I added a zipper and made a little zippered bag.

Another UFO finish was this Farmyard Friends baby quilt for Mathew. I quilted it at the beginning of the month and finished the binding on it this week.
Farm Friends Quilt
I had some leftover triangles from the 60* table runners I made last month, so I sewed them together and made a table topper. I quilted it up quick the other night and put the binding on and finished the hand sewing on it yesterday.
Farm Friends Tabletopper
At the end of retreat and during the last week I have sewn this little baby quilt together from the scraps of the Noah's Ark quilt I made last week. It turned out super cute and I can't wait to quilt it and finish it for my class in the next quarter.
Since February was so productive, I can't wait to see what I accomplish in March. I'm going to shoot for at least 2 UFO finishes and finishing the store challenge quilt.

I just don't know what to say about you, Moneik. You make me look like slacker-mom in a *huge* way. I never ceased to be amazed at what you accomplishment in a month. Kudos to you!
