January tally – February focus

I think January turned out good when it comes to finishes.
Not  that I  have very high finish numbers, but I managed to finish more than I started – which is ever so good in my book :-)

020209 strips

I did 4 more purple blocks this morning, so with 9 of 24 blocks done you get a feeling of how this quilt will look.
I am thinking about what colour to use for the sashing. First I thought about black, but now I lean to beige. I don’t have enough purple to do sashing, but I have enough to make corner stones though.
Maybe dark blue is an option too…..
What do you think ? Your opinion is very welcome :-)

020209 febr focus

On my February focus list, in addition to the 96 strip blocks and a secret project (or two), are these 3 projects:

  • My very aged traditional stitchery that is coming along nicely with back stitches instead of stem stitches :-)
  • The Tilda angel kit with 3 angels – I made the 2 remaining dresses this afternoon.

  • The chicken stitchery – ready for framing. I just have to decide on fabric to have around the stitchery before mounting it in a frame.




  1. Wow, big plans for february. As a border for my quilts I often prefer a darker "frame", so black or purple (okay, you don´t have enough purple) would be great. But on the photo some fabrics look like turquoise? Perhaps this lighter option would look great too. Whatever you choose, I think it will look nice!

  2. Flotte blokker du lager, mørkeblått blir kjempefint. Jeg tror jeg har litt¨å lære av deg når det kommer til rester...
    Etter jul har faktisk vært flink til å bruke av det jeg har untatt et lite feilskjær i fatquartershop da, hmmm...

  3. I didn't use sashing on mine and love the results. However, if you are going to do sashing, I think black is the way to go. Check out mine without the sashing on my strata post.

  4. Hope to get some time to start my strippy blocks today.

  5. From looking at the finished squares, I think your dark blue option for a border would look stunning. The angels are looking like they are nearly ready to fly.

  6. How about apple-green og dark blue for the sashing?

  7. Love your black and white and red quilt top!and your redwork embroidery. I vote for dark blue sashing :)

  8. Your dolls are darling!
