My February Giant Block Quilt

I have been trying to hurry and finish up this quilt so that I could post photos before February ended.  But of course, when I woke up this morning, it was raining. A lot.

But I did my best to make it work even if we had to take this one under my front porch. 

Here is my February Giant Block quilt! I decided to go really big, this I the 36" version and it was gloriously fast. The entire quilt top was done in one evening.

Sunprint Sandia Quilt

This quilt is available for sale in my shop!

I was playing around with some different ideas for how to use the Sunprint fabrics from the January Culcita Box, when I opened up the Southwest Modern book my Kristi Schroeder that I had recently received from Lucky Spool Media and saw the Sandia Quilt.

It is a great, quick pattern and worked perfectly with fat quarters. I decided to start with the warmer colors in the upper left corner and gradually move down to the cooler colors in the lower right corner.

February Culcita Box Unboxing - Gleaned by Carolyn Friedlander

I am so excited about the fabric in this month's Culcita Box - it is Gleaned by Carolyn Friedlander. Carolyn's fabric is so unique and beautiful and it mixes wonderfully with other collections.

There are also Essex and Essex Metallic prints mixed in and the texture and colors work really well with the collection.

Valentine’s Harper Quilt

This quilt was really supposed to be done weeks ago.  But at least it is done (the day before) Valentine's Day.

The quilt is made from my Harper Quilt pattern using the small polka dot templates. The small little dots are so quick to sew together that this was a relaxing and enjoyable project.

FreeSpirit Free Patterns

FreeSpirit's website has been removed and these patterns are no longer available for download. They have assured me that a new website is underway and I will update the links as soon as the new downloads are available.  

Most of you have probably heard the news that FreeSpirit is closing.  I am so sad! Since I am not sure if their website will stay up or if they will take it down, I wanted to make a post with links to all of the free patterns that I have written for them.

If you are interested in making any of these quilts, download them now because they may not be available forever!

Do you have a quilting bucket list? I do, but it's getting really short.
Wild Side Pickledish Quilt
I have basically had the same few quilts on my list since I very first started quilting and I have been slowly checking them off.
1. Single Girl
3. Pickle Dish
4. Farmer's Wife (started but never finished, maybe someday?). The posts are here, here, here, here, and here.


I hope you all enjoyed the January block because it is already February.
Meet the February Block. Just like last month's block, there are instructions for 24" and 36" versions and a couple of examples on how to use the blocks to make your own Giant Block quilt.
