Works in Progress

It seems unreal that February has come and gone and March is halfway in the books.  I have been doing a little sewing.  I started a Valentine table runner in January.  Well, Valentine's Day is past and it is still not completed.  I finished the top and then quilted it.  I did not like the way the quilting came out so I ripped it all out.  I am back to square one on the quilting.  Hopefully it will be completed by next Valentine's Day!!

Also ....

I purchased a Baby Lock Embroidery machine and a cabinet back in December.  Needless to say I was scared to death of that big thing.  The local quilt store was offering a 2014 EmbroidaBlock of the Month class.  The quilt blocks are made in the hoop, including the back, and then stitched together with a "quilt as you go" method.

The name of the quilt is Jacobean Journey, and what a journey it will be for me.   The design came from Hoop Sisters. The first class was on March 1.  Four blocks of two designs are to be completed each month.  I have four of one completed.

Block One - I love the colors.
 I did have one of the other but discovered yesterday that I had used the wrong fabric, so back to square one on that one.
Block 2 - Wrong colors.
If I make it through this I will be able to embroider anything!!
Happy Quilting............
