Six February Finishes for Charming Girls Club

I managed to finish everything this month for the Charming Girls Club...YEAH !!
Here are the three blocks for the Around the World Quilt.
This is Cathy's block, she wanted a selvedge somewhere in the block. This is Jane's block...her quilt is very colorful... This is Deborah's block...I had fun making these wonky blocks.

Here is my February BOM from Simple Thymes.

This block from Beyond the Color Purple...has been stippled. I am so glad to be able to get back to finishing this quilt. Micro stippling is NOT fun...it is HARD work!!

You can click to enlarge these pictures...and see how really small the micro stippling is.........

My final project this month is the Wild Circles quilt...here it is all sandwiched and pin basted...ready for quilting. I actually have started the quilting, but will have to finish it for next month's project.

I am so happy to have found the Charming Girls...I have actually been able to finish up some of my UFO's...and I plan on continuing doing so till they are all done.l
Thanks for visiting and have a really nice day!

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 month...as 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 it...my 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.
