Lovely Rosemary. I recognise a few of those fabrics!

Here is UFO #3 zapped. 46" x 52" approx. Many of the hsts came from my daytime group's swap. I think I made the top in 2014 or 2015 and it is an adaptation of an idea from Stuart Hillard, in PP, on using up your scraps.

Wow Margaret, that is lovely and such a simple but effective way to use HST, I might just be copying your idea for a couple of charity quilts I'm planning.

Carol that is so pretty, the blues all work very well together.

Margaret the pattern is beautiful and is that a batik that you have used for the backing.

Lovely quilt Carol. So pretty in blue.

Here is my final offering for February, UFO #4 zapped. Sri Lankan embroidery sample. 12" square. Big Bird has been waiting about 2 years to have an eye! Buttonhole and stem stitch by machine and the rest hand stitched. Bought some black wall art from charity shop. Covered the front with wadding and stapled panel over it. If I had had some ribbon to cover the edges, I wouldn't have backed it.

Margaret, loving the colours, well done! Big Bird can see - very nice!

Carol, good job on the 'blues' - I like the gingham sashing.

I'm busy trying to finish another quilt, thanks to the snow today - we'll see how it goes!

Best wishes

Ladies,

I am truly blown away by the volume of your work, let alone the standard. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but you have certainly exceeded my expectations- let's put it that way! Just amazing- so well done all of you!

I am currently battling my way through the wind and snow to get to the K&S show at Olympia for the next couple of days, so will postpone announcing winners till Monday if that's OK?- feel free to add more if you wish.

If any of you are going to Olympia, though I suspect the snow will have put a lot of people off, do come and say hello! I'm there today and tomorrow morning weather permitting- though I may head back to Brighton in the morning if it's looking worse.

Keep warm!

Emma x
