February installment completed

Today I finished the second month addition to "Holiday Inn". It's been quite awhile since I worked with pieces this small - I love it! The half-square triangle squares finish at 1". The piece now measures 19 1/2" square. Not sure why the one edge looks crooked - I assure you it is straight.

I'm eager to work on March's segment - two plain borders separated by an hour glass border - so I can be caught up by the next meeting on April 11th. I have a couple other things to do first - I'll talk about them tomorrow.

This is a beautiful quilt! Can't wait to see what else you do with it. I love Jo Morton's designs...was this a kit of fabrics, or your choices? I really like the toile with the rest of it!

Very pretty quilt, I love the toile looking fabric you used in the background...very appropriate for the old time feeling of the block.

Beautiful! It is turning out lovely, and I love that little blue berry in the applique.

The applique is so pretty and set off perfectly with the borders. By the way...the piecing looks like an excellent job - wtg.

Another wonderful project! The applique is beautiful--I hope you WILL share your technique! Did you use Thangles for the half-square triangles? It is fun to see the progress you are making!
