It’s the beginning of a new month! Which means it’s time for Lily’s Quilts Fresh Sewing Day. I thought it would be fun to go over what I’d posted in February that was actually sewing-related, and not about stash enhancements.

Right at the beginning of February, I was able to post my first (and may only) finish of 2012! Cheating on the Farmer’s Wife sprang out of my need to do something fairly simple to piece. It went along swimmingly, and quickly.

Until I got to quilting. Then I decided that I had to do straight line quilting throughout the entirety of the quilt, and only 1/2″ apart. Still, I’m really happy with it, despite the stupid amount of hours I put into it.

Nine more Farmer’s Wife blocks done through out the month. I’m nearly done with the blocks that are easily rotary cut. I think I have maybe a dozen more like that. After that, everything is either a paper-pieced block or on a grid that makes me go a little crazy. Those will probably end up being paper-pieced as well.

Pretty good progress. Now I need to get cracking on my WIPs and UFOs. It’d be nice so have something else finished this year.
