    I absolutely adore that quilt!!! I love HST's...(they don't always love me, but anyway...) I like the way it is really scrappy but you also tied it together with the background that turns into the outer border! What pattern is that???

    Oh and where is Feb.???? and March???? :lol: :lol:

    I like both of them. Where did you get the patterns? I love the Double Wrench, using the background and one color...very striking.

    The scrap quilt was from a free pattern from one of the online stores it might have been from "Stitch-n-Frame" the "Double Wrench" is from a book named "101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts".

    Your quilts are really pretty. There is no way I could do a quilt a month! I can't wait to see your quilts for the rest of the year!

    Beautiful quilts! What a challenge you've set yourself! I thought I'd given myself a chore making the little quilts featured on my calender each month, but they're only about 16" x 24"!

    Beautiful quilts!! I am looking forward to your March quilt too.

    You are a much better woman (and quilter) than I am. I challenged myself with a quilt a month, too. In January I finished my Underground Railroad quilt and it is out for quilting now. In February I made a simple, small Yellow Brick Road. Well......it has been sandwiched and not quilted for a whole month now!! I just cannot make myself quilt it. In March I worked on a queen size quilt for my youngest son, but it is not nearly finished. I think his quilt may be a 2 month quilt!

    Holy cow!!! You're ambitious or I'm REALLY lazy. I'm not sure I'll get 12 quilts in my lifetime...lol. And they're sooo beautiful. Things with points and I aren't friends yet...maybe someday. Can't wait to see the rest of the year!!!
