    I think i will have to consider this a "prototype". LOL
    I so rarely use satin or decorative stitches, my need to practice is waaaaaaaaaaaaay obvious.
    Sewing over lumps with deco stitches turned out to be more difficult than i expected.

    As with doing anything new, I will take the lessons learned from this one and try again.
    Given all the lessons, i suspect it will be again and again and at least one more again. LOL LOL LOL

    I guess i'll finish the intended mug rug ... but i sure won't give it to anybody i like. LOL LOL LOL

    Oh wow, another month of having to bring my A Game. You guys are definitely keeping with the theme-- this looks like a challenge, but so fun!

    I think I'll use different reds and whites.. oooh so excited!

    Here is my February block! Almost forgot how to do these, oh well, it is what it is and I am not changing it! I am using the background fabric in all, I hope, blocks for this year. I have another to use if I run out. Added ric rac around it to go for a crazy heart look.

    Kathy, my goodness you are quick! It was just posted this morning, and you have yours done already! I have it printed out but haven't selected my fabrics yet, because I was gone most of the day.

    Happy sewing, all!

    That's because I don't work, was done with the heart this morning, appliqued it this evening. In between, cleaned the house, worked out, went shopping, out for a late lunch with the hubby, and taking care of the puppy. A very full day! And now a looooong wait for March to arrive!

    Whew! Didn't come out exactly like the pattern, but man! That thing was a challenge! I need to finish the square out, but I feel like the hard part is over.

    I did extra little stitches on the green dots and blue stripes in case my heart gets "broken" lol!

    I like yours, Frenchfryqueen, with the larger pieces. I finished my first heart but don't really like it. I think I would like it better with less fabrics and larger pieces. Back to the sewing machine to try again.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Finished my block, I'm using the same color scheme this year for all my blocks. I'm going to put a crazy border on this, but have to wait to see what the other blocks around it look like. This was more of a challenge than I thought it would be, and I need to practice my fancy stitches. But it was a fun block to do.

    After some frustration, i managed to finish this block. I had more difficulty with this block than I've had in years; patchwork is just not my thing, I officially declare it. Thank you to Sheep for getting me over my hurdle. Now, I am off to buy another seam ripper, this one is dull.

    This was fun, and I am going to make a quilt of all the blocks this year so I'm making them of matching fabric.
