February UFOs Parade

Wow!  Just. Wow!

I can't believe the quilts and other projects that have been completed this month!  And it was a short month, too!

Before the parade begins, here is your assignment for March, should you decide to accept it:

UFO #1

I don't have a photo of my next UFO project, but it's a quilt from the 2010 Rocky Mountain Quilt Shop Hop. The shops had a special "Colorado" themed fabric printed just for the hop, and each shop designed a block using Civil War reproduction fabrics.

I did get my own February UFO pieced (remember, in my world, ready to go to the quilter is finished!):

It's an oldie Buck-A-Block project, blogged here.

And now, Ta Da!  The February UFO Parade!

Look at this beauty!  Anyone who has made one of Bonnie Hunter's mysteries will appreciate Karen's "Orca Bay."  Go to her blog here to read "the rest of the story."

Sooli finished two projects in February.She says the first one took "no time at all," so she went ahead and finished her #3 UFO, the second bag.  Sooli is one of my Australian followers, visit her blog here.

Irene has a jump on next Christmas with this cute snowman panel quilt.  She says all it needed was the binding -- but you know it is hard for something like that to go to the top of the pile!  (I know, I know!  I hate binding!)

Another two-fer finish comes from Sandra in San Diego (lucky duck).  Her blog is called KwiltnKats, so of course, her quilts are named:


and Konfidential

The story "behind the kwilts" is here.

Another Australian friend, Susan, finished up this cute "houses" quilt:

See more of Susan's projects at her blog here.

Kerry got this lovely, challenging quilt finished just in time for the February parade:

In her blog post, here, she claims this pattern "goes together quickly."  I'm thinking my friend Holly is going to have another person on the bus . . .

Oh, man, here is another person who finished two projects in this short month!  AND she was battling the floods in Australia!

This is Noela's January finish (the power was out, so she couldn't email!):

And here is her Twister Table Runner for February:

Well done, Noela, and we all hope the flood cleanup is complete!  Here is Noel's story.

Jessi made this quilt in exchange for a friend's piano -- then found out the piano was too big to be moved!  But she still finished the quilt for her friend, who will be visiting China and considering teaching English there.  I had to share two photos, one shows the entire quilt, but the second one show the colors better (and oh, yeah, I see another Orca Bay in the works!)

Here is another Lil' Twister quilt, made by Debbi using Bunny Hill's Lily and Will II and a bit of Deb Strain's Cherish Nature.  Debbi reports that her 2013 UFO list has 15 items -- and she finished two this month.  But only sent one photo!  Hope to see the other finish next month, Debbi!

"Quilt Camp Carol" sent this photo of some lovely applique work.  She has such a great eye for combining colors!

And friend Martha claims her February finish would never have been finished if her son had not said "I want this one."  So glad he did!  I hope I get to see this one in person, Martha!

Once again, WOW!  I hope you'll visit the blogs of these fine finishers, and if I missed you this month, let me know.  I'll update the post -- and announce the winner of this month's giveaway on Monday.
