UFO Plan for February

So, I have two UFO numbers on stashbusters.
#64 is a Fall Quilt 
#2 is an alphabet quilt.
The Sampler Society is using up the leftovers from this bug jar quilt.
I don't have a photo of the pieces right now, and the background has to be something different.
A Lovely Year of Finishes will be my Christmas quilt from the Sampler Society.
I just started this one last year, so it is a new UFO.
I know this was a January UFO from stashbusters, but I really want to finish it and it is so close. 
This is my leader/ender UFO that is going to DH's hunting buddy's wife who is going through chemo.

That is a set of 6 planned quilts for February.
But, they are all easily finished.

What did I do in January?

In the past, I've been  one to just delete and update for the beginning of each month.
I'm going to try and just post it so I have a record.

Stockings (6)
Camouflage bags
Whimsical Garden Quilt
Whimsical Garden Quilt
Whimsical Garden Quilt
Whimsical Garden Quilt
Bug Jar Quilt
Postage Stamp Quilt
Butterfly needlepoint pillow
Walker bag

So those are my completions.
It's been a good month.
I'm close on a number of quilts, so maybe February will be extra special.

Slow day

My day started slow and never sped up.
But I did work on the table runner DD designed
I have 2/3 of the blocks embroidered.
It will go fast tomorrow.
I'm sewing the border together 
Have the borders to put sew together and put on.
I'll bind it in gold. 
Pineapple blossom gets worked on as a leader ender.
There will be more blocks before the borders are completed.
I think to make it larger, I'll make some 9 patches for the border.

UFO Challenge gift

So, anyone that follows my blog knows I am a joiner of UFO Challenges.
Karlene group Mom at Sampler Society Yahoo Group made this for the top winners.
I'm blessed and excited that I have a wall to hang it and can see it as I type.

It is so pretty.

350 Block Program

At Prairie Moon they are doing a 350 block challenge.  So far this month, I have 66 blocks made.  If i did a project that didn't have a certain number of blocks, I counted it as 1.

My progress last night

The center is together.
I'm cutting and sewing that outside border.
One more strip set and I'll have extra. 
While sewing the chicken quilt, I'm working on the pineapple blossom.
This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern over at Quiltville.
She has lots of wonderful patterns and great instructions.

DS had my desk and I was sewing, so I just now got to posting these.

I will have the top finished this month.
I don't know if I will have the quilting done this month or not.
