FEB fabriholics and Library Project revisited

February for the fabric fast went so much better than January for this quilter -- I am up to 10 finishes for the year and I have used at least 40 yards of stash to date. 

I did make one small purchase this month -- 2 yards of Konna Espresso for my scout class. A solid, which I have already put to use so I'm within my parameters and feel pretty good about things right now. 

I had a great deal more fabric come into my life -- Teri brought me some and then so did my quilt mama Brenda (the pic below are just from her). I Love them!!

I really, really gotta sort these out and make plans for them soon to help regain surface area in my craft room.
I have also been making progress on my Library project challenges -- where we try to actually make something from that pile of beautiful books and patterns that all us crafters collect.

Strip search -- finished
Lazy Sunday -- Finished
Scout Quilt -- after 3 classes -- top completed and the back is nearly finished.
Up next will be another project from the Jelly roll book -- fabric pulled and ready to start.
Gypsy Wife -- doing this as a QAL -- monthly goals have not been met at this time but I am hoping to knock these blocks out tomorrow or by the end of the week (for another link up). I do have all my fabric pulled together and ready to go .

My goals for March are 
  • COMPLETE BOM blocks -- like for real this time, ideally I want to finish the quilt top 
  • Quilt the 2 basted quilts and get these in the finished pile 
  • Mom's apron needs embroidering and assembly 
  • continue on with Gypsy Wife QAL 
  • Project for Rebecca
  • Star Along project -- deadline is the end of March
  • work on Scout Quilt -- maybe finish
  • Projects from Library Project goals 
  • Start something from quilt wish list
  • put away the donated fabrics and continue with the purge, using stash and non buying


  1. Lovely finishes - wow, you have March all mapped out already.

  2. Looks like March will be busy! I can't wait to see everything as you finish.

  3. The Library project is such a great idea. I have books that I have not made one single thing out of.

  4. Your Lazy Sunday caught my eye - very pretty! You are more productive than I am!

  5. Look at you go! Amazing finishes and so much fabric used up. Wicked!

  6. Holy Crap 10 finishes! JEALOUS! You go girl...give me some of that energy and way to go on the fast!

  7. Blimey! 10 finishes and 40 yards, I feel totally inadequate now :-)
    Beautiful quilts, and well done you for sticking to the fast

  8. Nice finishes. I haven't even started to think about March goals yet. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. Wow have you accomplished a lot!! Beautiful quilts and I can see some neat new projects! Thanks for sharing.
