You have been busy, Sewbiz! I too love the batik one.

sewbizgirl: I like that caterpillar one too. One of the Kindergarten teachers where I am a substitute teacher used some of her Scholastic book points to buy me a hardcover/hard pages set of Eric Carle books. There were 4 or 5 of them in the set. I have read 2 to my baby grandson already.

I've given away Lots of stuff but it looks like nothing has gone out. I close on this house 4 weeks from today, or earlier if I can get out sooner. My new place is in a small town 200 miles north, still in TX. The town I'm in has almost 120,000 people & the entire county where I'm moving has just over 18,000. Quite a change! I get something done each day & the end may be in sight.

Good luck, Conchalea! You are on the home stretch. I moved from a city of 324,000 to 6,500 population. It's fantastic....I Love that the grocery store checkers and bank tellers know my name and greet me. And that lovely group of old-timer farmers who meet every morning for an Egg Mcmuffin and coffee invite me to join them when I come in. It's lovely..truly. I wish the same for you. Hang in there...

So sweet, Connie. My hubbie and I were just talking today about our favorite childhood books read to us by parent/grandparent. My fav was Thumbelina and my Nana could really get into the character voices. Such wonderful memories you are making.

Only progress on my second big UFO of the year is I have gathered the excess blocks together to sew a strip to enlarge the backing just a bit, need a couple strips of some fabric to go on the sides of the pieced strip to widen the back just a bit more then add borders to the top. I've also progressed to the point I have most of the backing/border fabric. It just sits in my sewing room and stares at me!!

SBG, thanks for the good wishes. Of the quilts you've shown, the Caterpillar/Butterfly is my favorite. I may piece a butterfly after seeing your beauty

Hurray I finished the binding on the February ufo- it was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my son, instead itís going to be a birthday gift- his bd is March 20.
I also managed to get a butterfly quilt quilted for a lady in our sewing group. Now- on to March. My March ufo is smaller- should have time to get it done.
one picture of my finished quilt- other pictures are a new post In pictures along with patterns information

Great coordinating colors...ckcowl...lovely quilting, too.

Beautiful, ckcowl... Your son should love this. Great use of block design and colors for this panel. Did you design the layout for this? Looks amazing...

I hope to get my UFO and WIP from quilter by this weekend. Fingers crossed. Then I can drop off to the quilter the Elk panel quilt for my cousin. Also, a WIP. Meanwhile, still working on a 2-year old kitted project.

Teen, yes I figured out the layout, combining the two very different patterns to create a king sized quilt. It was fun to figure out the layout. And it was my first machine binding with a flange. I think I will be doing that again. I’ve always hand stitched my binding to the back after stitching to the front. But it is becoming difficult, my arthritis in my fingers complains about my hand stitching.
