First February finish.............

Stars and 16 patches, for lack of a better name, is finished.  I made the top from 2 piles of blocks that happened to be the same size.  The 16 patches were leftover from another quilt and the stars were mindless night sewing.  I finished the top in Nov. 2013.  It is approximately 56" x 70" so a nice size couch quilt.
The backing is an older Phil Jacobs fabric, Ivy.  I am so happy I decided on the green binding.

This is where I am on the Trip Around the World.  Yesterday I showed 9 vertical rows were sewn.  Now there are 29 sewn and 18 to go.

I like the red/pink area a lot.

 I received 2 Valentines in the mail this year.  The top one is from my great-grandson, age 2.

The second one is from one of my blogging buddies.  It is so neat!!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  

We're expecting a snow storm in the Chicago area today.  I hope it doesn't turn out to be a big one.  Just one more day until my program for the quilt guild.  

 For the local people, here is the information: the Fair City Quilters meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday February 15th at the Federated Church, 403 N. Main St. in Sandwich. Guest fee is $5.  The last time I gave a program for them was 4 years ago so this trunk show will be the quilts I have made since 2012.  I plan on taking at least 75 finished quilts and tops.
