Fresh Sewing Day - February 2012

I've decided to use my Fresh Sewing Day posts as a 'what I got done' and 'what I need to do' - thanks to Lawson&Lotti for the idea :).

I had my first finishes in Feb (yay!!)

Library bag, FTLOS big item, Name game Swap and FTLOS small item. 

I've completed another couple of swoon blocks, so I have five out of nine done:

I've made quite a few snail trail blocks, four of which became a mini (still not quite finished!)

And I've made progress on my secret project (bwahahaha!!)

And I've cut and planned out my two commissioned quilts - these are my priority for now. Apologies for the *#%t photo, I had to stand on our kitchen table to take it... Mostly Just Wing it, with a few other prints.



So my to do list for March:

1. Make my two commissioned quilts (no deadline, but I want to get them done soon)
2. Secret project (Deadline 30th March)
3. Swoon - make the other four blocks and then work out how the heck I'll quilt it (and what sashing colour to use - I'm thinking black at the moment ?!)
4. 4x5 Bee blocks (Due 15th April)

Plus whatever else crops up (and it always does!) I should probably get  a few long term WIPs quilted...

I'm linking up to Fresh Sewing day at Lily's Quilts (link in sidebar) - make sure you check out what everyone else has been up to this month!

I'm also linking up to Lawson&Lotti

Busy wee month, love your swap items and Swoon blocks. Good luck with your list for March! (I just wrote my to do list for a while, idly, on paper, and near had heart failure lol)
