I'm done with the Valentine/February quilts! I think. Why is it that we always end up trying to get things finished right before the holiday? I decided I'm starting the Christmas quilts next week! lol! Seriously, I am!
SO here are the big guys...
It's from a very old pattern by Cheri Saffiote Payne, like 1997 or so, when she was with Indygo Junction. Don't know where to find it now, although someone found one through ebay! It's not rocket science to make the blocks either..just a center and 4 rounds. I used muslin for the letters and circles, which are muslin circles with red circles on top. Very quirky circles too!
Cheri again, I finished this a few months ago and wanted to hand quilt, but the arm just wouldn't cooperate, so I did a free motion baptist fan pattern using 8 concentric card stock arc patterns. It takes a long time and a steady hand. Not again until I have a longarm and the quilting template! This pattern I'm sure you can get either through Country Loft (who still has this in their pattern section) or Fat Quarters Quilt Shop...email or call Michelle and I'm sure she can help you out.
Now I need to do some serious work on all my bom's! I have a few new ones waiting for me to complete Month One. A couple waiting for me to catch up, and two that need to be finished. I'll make a big list soon so you can follow along. Back to the machine!
