Well, tomorrow is the day, but I have my Valentine’s Day quilts out for the whole month of February. Here are pictures of two of my favorite February quilts:
I am working on block #15 for the Benjamin Biggs Wedding quilt, and this block has a LOT of leaves on it. 34 leaves to be exact. Here are my leaves, cut out and pressed a little bit. I am ready to begin appliqué of leaves, leaves, leaves, and a few buds and stems:
Here is the beautiful block in the original quilt:
And here are two more pictures…..one of last week’s completed block #14…..and the design wall, with all the blocks so far:
Progress is being made, and I am starting to think about the borders. I want to start on them soon, so they will not seem like such a big task to do all at the end of the project. When do you start on borders? I usually start after the middle is finished if I am not following a pattern, because I usually don’t know or haven’t decided what I am doing. lol. On this quilt, I know what the borders will be like. Lots of red swags….and leaves and buds.
What are you working on this week? I so enjoy reading about your quilts and looking at all of your pictures. Thanks for linking with the Design Wall Monday Linky Party! It is exciting to see all the new ideas and learn of new quilt-a-longs going on. My Valentines Day gift to myself will be enjoying all of your blogs on Tuesday. Happy Valentine’s Day!
