Love your colors and I'm green with envy 'cause I haven't done my blocks yet.  

I did go today at lunch time and got my background fabric.  The rest of my fabric will come from my stash.  I'm anxious to get sewing but I'm one of those who have to wash my fabric before I use it.  I probably won't get started till this weekend.  Oh well, it's hard to wait but at least I have something to look forward to.

Everyones blocks are so pretty.  I have got to get some time to get these done.  Have been busy with clients and hospice quilts and there just are not enough hours in the day.  Then hips, back and hands decided they were not attached to the same body and that slowed me down. (not that I am a speed demon on the best of days)  but I still have not put the BOM from EQ together, and now I am 4 blocks behind on this,  oh well, the turtle did win the race.  I am not even sure what colors I want to do this in.  Good Grief.

It has been so much fun seeing the variations in fabrics.  Everyone has such beautiful choices.  Really looking forward to see what we have next.

I notice that some quilters are using Minkie on the back of baby quilts.  What is minkie?

I used Minke for my robe with a flannel lining.  Beyond warm and so soft.  I preshrunk the flanned but it still shrunk more giving my robe a look not seen outside the house.  I travel with a different robe.  I will never give up this one and may be buried in it.

Craftsy has Beyond Machine Quilting on sale at 50% off.   Looks like a really good class on quilting if anyone is interested.

I signed up for the class, but haven't had time to make the January blocks yet, let alone get started on the February blocks. I really don't like some of the blocks, though. I know I'm picky, but I kind of hate the designs. I guess I should soldier on, but it's tough to put a bunch of work into learning to quilt when I think the patterns are ugly. :(

Just got back on the computer after a couple days off. Great bunch of blocks to come back to.

Patti, love both of your sets. Really like the large blue floral.

Jeanine, great blocks and that's a lot of snow.We have had a couple of days of much needed rain.

Anne, pretty blocks, I like the way you used the stripes

Patricia.pretty blocks, looks like a fairly easy fix on the chevron

Shari, bright and pretty blocks. Looks like spring.

I've got mine done just need to take a picture..

Jennifer ,that makes sense to me if you don't like the patterns no sense in making it, then its a waste of precious fabric. Nothing wrong with that, everyone has differnt likes . barbara

Well, I kind of feel like I should at least LEARN the technique. But the blocks would probably go straight for the bin afterward, so what's the point. I seem to LOVE the one no one else really likes--the chevron. But then, I'm a little nuts for chevrons in general...must be something to do with my military hubby's uniforms. ;)

Okay, I've been looking at everyone's blocks and decided to join the fun.  I'm using scraps available from the QG and will be doing a scrappy quilt to give as a caring quilt.  While the wacky blocks were fun, I think I'm with Jennifer....I like the Chevron the most so far.7043.BlockOfMonth_Feb_Patterns.pdf

Jennifer, I agree with you , I dont like the block pattern either. So I decided not to make them and waste my fabric, although, learning the technique is important to me. So maybe I will use my stach that I dont care about  Susan
