Last Week Of February

The longest month of the year is almost over. None to soon in my book. Spring is coming, the birds are singing their mating songs, the trees are tapped for maple syrup and the sun is getting stronger.
While I have been waiting..... I have been sewing, quilting and knitting.

I an currently working on a king size One Block Wonder, almost finished with the ruler work you see here then it is on to Slab 'O Borders

I have also been working on my Feathered Star. I have the star border almost finished.

And I also made 3 Dear Jane Blocks this month:

Not much to show for my knitting, I am attempting to learn Magic Loop. Unraveled once, on my second try. So far so good but I only have a couple of rounds completed.

Have a great week, productive, happy week!

Chenango Piecemakers Featherd Star Raffle Quilt

I will deliver this tonight at the monthly guild meeting of the Chenango Piecemakers. Every two years they have a Festival of Quilts in October. One of the big attractions is the raffle quilt. This year Linda Scheben pieced the center block and the members of the guild made the surrounding stars. Cally Pletl had the vision and the challenge of putting it all together. I had the pleasure of quilting it.
I hope it brings lots of $$ for the guild and its charities but mostly I hope it goes to a home where it will be appreciated.
