FEBRUARY MAKES

Happy Wednesday!  Thanks so much for all the nice comments on my previous post.  There were a couple of questions I couldn't answer because the commenter was a 'no-reply' but I will address those at the end of this post.

This months bee blocks :

I made a cake for Carla 


Stacey asked for a star block with low volume background


Jera asked us for string blocks using the foundation piecing method.  I sewed the strips onto 8" squares then sewed the squares together


My daughter in law came over and I was able to give her 4 baby hats to give out at the hospital.
I finished a couple more




Regarding the last post, the font I used for the 'brand' is called Carnivalee Freakshow and yes the quilt pattern is original so it's not available : )  The tutorial for the arrows can be found here  

The wedding is coming up fast. We probably shouldn't,  but hubby and I have decided to take off for a few days.  See you when we get back  : )
