February focus projects


Since I picked up this Ufo in January, I decided that it is it's time to be done 🎄
It's a candle mat - the hexies are 1 inch.

My main focus project for February - with a deadline - is this lap quilt top, 48" by 60"

It was never an Ufo, but it is on my to do list for my care quilt group's get together next weekend. 
We do have a lot of fabrics in the group the participants can pick from, but for me it feels better to use from what I already have at home.
I am sure I am not the only one having more fabrics that what I can use for many years......

These care quilts do not make the biggest dent, but it does make a difference in my fabric collection over time. Before, I used to make my care quilts A to Z, but I do not do that anymore.
We have some lovely ladies in our group being good at machine quilting, and have that as their task in the group. So, hence that, I can do what I like best, making quilt tops.

My arms do not like using the sewing machine for more than 1-1 1/2 hours maximum a day, so I have made a progression plan to be done in good time. It works like a charm so far 💖

Wishing you a wonderful day where you are 💖



  1. I like your reds and hand piecing is nice & relaxing

  2. The candle mat is very pretty. The care quilt looks nice, fence rows are always a good design. I also prefer piecing a quilt then passing it along for someone else to machine quilt. Happy stitching!

  3. Lovely candle mat. Nice way to use your fabrics up in a donation quilt.

  4. One inch hexies - so cute! It really puts into perspective just how truly lovely that redwork block is.
    I think it would be fun to be a part of a group who would donate the quilting part since that isn't my favorite part. Good luck with your deadline quilt.

    P.S. I have been watching videos on traveling in Norway. It is such a beautiful country! Some day!
