I have to put Feb. BOM on hold, as I have to bind the quilt for my yougest Grandson, who is coming a week from tomorrow.
I have a busy week, Dentist, Eye Dr. appointments, and a couple of day time quilt meetings.

I didn't put the ball on my vase either. I've begun trying to select fabrics for March. Those stems and leaves will be "interesting" to do. :? I think I may go with purple flowers and vase star. Don't know what I'll use for the vase itself. I'll think on it for a few days because I'm in the middle of a Quilt of Valor and need to get it done. :wink:

There's another pic on my profile that has the basic fabrics for the rest of the quilt, borders, sashings, etc.-- I can't even remember now which was which, but mostly subbing pink for red & brown for tan.
I picked out my March fabrics today, I've got more subtle greens and more vivid pinks this time, trying to vary it up a bit, and I think this will work b/c this block sits between the first 2 (if I set them in order, yet to be seen!)

Oh, and I decided not to do the ball on the vase, I must have actually thought about it earlier too, since the fabric I used for the vase ends up w/ stripes right there, looks like a design element on it's own. Lucky me :roll: so I really am finished with that one after all!

Florence I really like your fabric choices together. Very nice. I love sightseeing other people's work because I would not have gone with those colors and it's great to see how beautiful colors that are not in my palette go together. It stretches my thinking. Anyway, do you have sashing ideas yet? I can't wait (well I'm going to have to wait lol!) to see yours and others who have gone a different color path all put together. I really wanted to experiment too but was so drawn to the original for a christmas quilt and time being limited am only doing 1 version (for now!)

Well, I finished February & it's posted.... or rather, I thought I was finished... :? My computer is acting up so I'm just trying to get finished posting this before I crash, so I grabbed this forum header, and the post just above mine says something about forgetting the ball at the base of the vase... Hmmm... Serendipity, since there seem to be several February posts I could have selected from, and I might never have realized that I didn't do that yet! HA! oh well, so I'm almostfinished, and have printed off March & will try to get that one done before April! At least I get a few more days this month!
Anyway, everything except the ball is done & posted on my profile :roll: Florence

Marge and Terri and everyone else...what a wonderful array of fabrics so far in the February block, and also January. I can't wait for March now that I'm in the swing of it. But
I have a few :roll: unfinished projects calling to me. So I need to have to wait for March.

I am still working on my January block, I probably wont even get started on my February block until March comes out. I feel so super behind. But what can you expect when your a newbie to needle turn appliqué?

Heather,
Don't feel so bad about being behind, I have picked out my back ground fabric and some of the rest of my palate of fabrics and thats about it :oops: I havent even fully decided if I'm going to do it by hand or try a machine method.

I see now that I need to get on the ball, lol. I am still working on January's block :oops: I finally figured out what I was doing wrong before and now I am humming along on that. I have 4 stems appliqued and since I am finishing the peicing on my DWR today I know I will have more time to devote soon. You know, I never knew I would like applique before this but now I love it!!
