    Everyone's blocks look great. Sapphire, we can't have too many seam rippers IMHO
    Thanks Nelco for helping me out with this block.

    I have finally finished my Crazy Heart block for February. This block was so much fun to make, I really enjoyed this pattern. Instead of machine stitching all of the little pieces i chose to do hand embroidery work, because I love to do it that way. I hope you like my block for this month. ENJOY!!

    I've finished! I had some confusion at first but think I got the logic of the PP. It's not going to win any awards but it's not bad, IMO for the first time using foundation piecing plus I got to use all the fancy zig-zag stitches on my dressmaker! I am soliciting tips for keeping the background from puckering with the satin stitch. I used stabilizer and that helped some but I wish it was flatter. Anywhoo...I'm calling this one "Blue Valentine".

    SulaBug, did you just turn your edges and blanket stitch or did you use any sort of bond facing? Your crazy heart is beautifu and I am just trying to think of the best way to attach it to my block.

    Yes, I turned the edges under around the heart & blanket stitched it onto my background fabric. Then I added my embroidery stitches on top of that. I am thinking for sure, that the heart isn't going to go any where, hopefully!! Thank you for your kind compliment on my Crazy Heart block. I will be anxious to see how yours turn's out to. Good Luck & happy stitching!!

    Alright, here is my February block...because I am using civil war fabrics, I didn't want it to look victorian so I tried to make it look more traditional? I also am making some small pieces each month to work in the finished quilt...I am showing them to you so you can keep me honest and make sure I do it EVERY month! The civil war fabrics are not colors I would usually use, so it is kind of hard for me to stay true...but I will....

    WOW!! Your February block is absolutely gorgeous, I just love it. The appliqued flowers that you added really do make your block look like cival war era. Also the blocks that you are making to go with them are really great. I really like your idea's & will be anxiously waiting to see the future months along with the extra's!! Good Job.
