I finished my Feb block! (Actually about a week ago, but forgot to post it. :oops: ) Yes, I added the middle portion of the star logo. The space just seemed empty to me. I am auditioning fabrics for my March basket, but probably won't get started on it until after I return from a trip to Portland Oregon. I leave this Friday through next Wednesday. I have prepared a block from another needle turn project to take with me. Hopefully when I get back I can start March's BOM. Lorna

I was wandering the aisles in my LQS trying to find something for the vase and had nearly given up when I spotted what I settled on. I love it too :O)

I'm using a Mark-B-Gone marker for my marking, but I have been told you can use a #2 pencil LIGHTLY and it can be removed. See my blog on here where I wrote about the pencil remover recipe a friend gave me. It was basically 3 parts rubbing alcohol to 1 part water and a few drops of dish washing detergant that is NOT Dawn. She wets the marks then dips a toothbrush in it and gently scrubs the marks. I haven't had the chance to try it yet, but I saw the quilts she has done this way and there is not a single pencil mark to be seen.

Mandy I like that tracing idea too... what kind of marking tool are you using? I'm a little nervous about anything that's supposed to wash off, but other things I've tried so far are wearing off too easily... (of course, I've got dark fabric so that adds more trouble, but always looking for good ideas!!)

Florence, I got Fons and Porter's white lead for a mechanical pencil to try. I haven't used it for long yet but it makes a very fine line and seems to stay. Karen

Mandy,
you've been one busy gal! Your idea for tracing the pattern onto the front of the block sounds great. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks for sharing.

I'm on the ball today, lol!! I have prepared my newly aquired fabric, washing and ironing all 8 yards of mottled cream fabric and neatly folding it again (I'm using it for another project too), then cutting my 18 inch squares and zig-zagging one for the Feb block . I am trying my friend Donna's method this month, so I started by reversing the entire pattern onto freezer paper and ironing the whole thing on the wrong side of my background. Then I put it up on the window and traced the pattern onto my background front - I will use that again!!! My fabric never shifted and it traced sooooo easy. Now I just need to cut out the peices and prepare them like she told me, and I need to make those bias stems. Hmmm, I see the need to check out those stems again from the show... I'm on a roll now - lets see if I can get this thing done this weekend!!
