ALOYF February Finish

Stash Bee Blocks


Here are the 2 blocks I finished for Cyndi this month.  Lining up the strips with each cut was a bit gnarly.  I don't do a lot of improv, so this was a bit of a stretch for me, but it came together pretty quickly.   Sam was watching me at one point and about had a cow when she saw me slice with my rotary cutter and no ruler =)

February 2015 ALOYF Goal


This month will be a do-over for me.  Last October, my goal was to finish this top.  While I didn't finish the project, I did get the backing pieced and the quilt sandwiched.  From there it has been rolled up on my desk.

January ALOYF Finish--Charm Topper


I'm really happy with this finish.  I started it about a year ago when A Quilting Life posted these pics.  I had a couple mini-charm packs hanging around, but I didn't get it finished in time for Sherri's parade, and it was set gently aside ...

Welcome 2015!


This year is off to a bit of a slow start for me, but I'm rarin' to go!  Looking back at my goals for last year, I did pretty well, but I do need to move a couple of them forward ...
