February [review]

It's March! Already! February just flew by! I feel like I did a lot of sewing, but don't have masses to show for it as I was mostly working on the individual blocks which I've already shared in these blog posts here and here. The final total for the month is 64 blocks!

I'm nearly up to date on the Farmer's Wife - as of last night four blocks to make. I made 10 blocks in February bringing my total to 40.

I'm nearly up to date on the #365quiltchallenge - I made 27 in February and have two 3" blocks and the centre medallion to catch up on.

I made three Splendid Sampler blocks, there's one I don't like enough to make and another waiting for me.

I've started Mia's big girl quilt (finally) with two blocks.

And just yesterday I finally made a little more progress on the Baby's quilt with 4 blocks, which is just as well because her due date is getting closer - Five and a half weeks to go! I've also made 3 hand pieced blocks, including some Trapies. At some point I'm going to need a plan for these...

On the less blocky front I finished off the piecing on My Small World and started the quilting. This accounted for 15 more blocks though!

And on the non-sewing front, we now have a two-year-old big-girl in the house - no more cot, no more high chair... her choice!

We had a lovely family party to celebrate with a fabulous cake made by Mia's godmother: flowers and trains!

How was February for you?

OMG Jennie I'm so jealous of all the sewing you've been doing! I'm loving all these blocks, they look amazing. And Happy Big 2 to your daughter, what a happy pic of her

All your blocks look beautiful and as usual you are managing to juggle lots of projects ☺ My February was good, lots of enjoyable sewing but few finishes! Maybe March will be the month of finishes?
