February Finishes!

I am so happy (and relieved) to have two baby quilts completed for twins due in March. Whew! [That's a huge sigh of relief coming from me!]

I designed two quilts in EQ7, a monkey and an owl quilt. It took the entire month to go from the design to finished quilts. Maybe I'm just a slow quilter, but life definitely gets in the way...field trips, Girl Scouts, dinner, taxes, ARGH! Can't there be more hours in a day to quilt?!

I paper-pieced all six blocks. I love the owl.

I tripped over the "Woodland Critters" fabric while shopping for extra sashing fabric on Etsy. With the hedgehogs, foxes, and owls, I had to have it! It ended up on the back, pieced together with grey minky.

My own Good Golly Ginger tag! :)
The back of the tag says Handmade by Katie Dold. These are so easy to make.

Don't forget the monkey quilt I made for the other twin...

I designed these quilts in EQ7. They measure 40" x 55". I free-motion-quilted in all-over loops and hearts. It's time to go wash them and ship them to their new owners.

And now I need to clean my house. It seriously has not been cleaned this whole month! Don't worry, I do keep it sanitary, at least.

As for A Lovely Year of Finishes, Yes, I did meet my goal for February.

  6. 2 finishes....you need to give yourself a big pat on the back. Kudos to you on a job well done. The monkey and owl are so cute and the quilts so sweet and colorful. I was just thinking...I would gladly take a messy house and the creating of two quilts over birthing twins. What a wonderful gift. genie

  8. Both quilts are lovely! I think the quilting on the owl one is perfect - reflects the heart shapes of the petals beautifully!
