|Began and Finished 2015|
I didn't realize I was getting down to the wire on this. I announced my February UFO here. I actually finished it yesterday, but because I used a pink chalk to mark my quilting lines, I had to wash it. And even though it's not very noticeable, some of the pink is still there. I did stitch in the ditch around and inside all the blocks and then a FMQ double loop around the outer border. I needed to to piece the back to make it wide enough so used some of the extras. I hate to give away a quilt that doesn't look new and crisp, but there was just no other way to get the chalk out.
I've been calling this the Friends Who Have Never Met Quilt because I feel like I have been completing a quilt started by quilting friends I've never met. But lately I've been calling it the Orphan Blocks Have a New Family. It doesn't matter as the quilts we give through the church don't get a label with their name, only the name of our group and who it is going to.
Now I need to decide which UFO to finish for March, and I also hope to finish at least one WIP also. It's been so cold here lately that one with a lot of handwork might be nice. We got a reported two inches of snow yesterday, which was just enough for kids to make some muddy snowmen, and today I saw a few flakes but they never stuck.
