Blue Color Challenge for February

Finished a block for the February Color Challenge which is blue. 

Here are my 2 blocks that I have sewn so far, since January's color challenge was red.

I am linking my blue block to Patterns by Jen.

Strawberry Social Mini

I've had this Strawberry Social Mini pattern by Margot Languedoc  for a little while. So when I saw that it was chosen as the February mini pattern, I decided to get it out and pick out some fabric. I like how it turned out. I used my pink and red stash from Pam Kitty Morning fabric.

In keeping with the strawberry theme, I found this blue with strawberries print, also, in my stash for the back. 

Not sure where I will be putting it, but for now, at least, it feels good knowing that I sewed one of my many purchased patterns.

January's "Red" Block

I'm thinking about keeping up with the Monthly Color Challenge blocks at PBJ. I figured that I should be able to keep up with a monthly block, amongst my other quilt projects. I would love to have a Sampler quilt top completed this year.

I pieced the January block yesterday with (mostly) success. I didn't have a whole lot of red and the one fat quarter that I had that was lighter had already been used for another project so it wasn't enough. I really want to use up my stash for this quilt along. So I found a pink and red fat quarter. I think it turned out fine. Makes me think of Valentine's Day. 

There's still time to join in. If you link up your block or something you made that is Red, you have a chance to win to have your quilt top quilted by Dizzy Quilter. That is awesome!

Finished Roundabout OMG

One OMG for December at Elm Street Quilts was to quilt and bind my Roundabout Quilt. It is done and I am now happily using it on my couch for Christmas.

My original post was here. I enjoyed the Roundabout Quilt Along at Happy Quilting Melissa. The QAL kept me going to get this quilt completed. I'll admit that I do have a few quilt tops sitting in a stack. Hopefully, I'll get to them in 2018.
