February Projects for Charming Girls

I hope I'm not biting off more than I can chew this month...being it's such a short month...

First up I will be working ALOT on the Old Red Barn's 'WILD CIRCLES ' quilt along...making lots of these.............. Next I think I'll do something easy...Feburary's BOM, Simple Thymes.....
Then I have to get working on Summer Sadie's 'Around the World Quilt's' blocks. I just received 3 bags of blocks...have to make one for each quilt.
It won't take long for me to make a house block, but the other two will require more thought. Gotta get them done and sent out as soon as possible so they can get to the rest of the participants.

Finally...I have a BIG PROJECT...I really want to get this quilt finished!!! The name of the pattern is BEYOND THE COLOR PURPLE. It is machine embroidered. I have done all of the embroidery, the center is all done, and the top and bottom 3 blocks have been MICRO STIPPLED with my infamous 'CRAZY MICRO STIPPLE'. The side pieces contain 5 blocks each. I have already spray basted the batting and backing to the sides but need to do the quilting. I'm attempting the 'quilt as you go' technique!

This wil be a very pretty quilt whenever it gets done. I hope to get just ONE block quilted this it takes a VERY long time to do that micro thing.

Here is a close up of one of the blocks.

I made the label A LONG TIME AGO. Didn't expect not to get it finished.

So there you have projects for this month....hopefully the Wild Circles will be all put together...I doubt that I will be able to get it sandwiched and certainly not quilted...
You can click on the pictures to enlarge them and see more detail............Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
