February Finishes . . . .

I'm happy to report that I'm back on track with my Evening Bloom goal of one block a month! Here is block number seven!!!


My favorite block so far!!

These blocks are so big I can't fit more than 6 on my design wall,


so between the two pictures you can see my seven finished blocks, only two more to go.

I also finished block two of my Memories of Province BOM this month.

I only made one change, I used the red floral print that I didn't use in block one instead of the dot print that I did use.

I'm behind on this BOM, I got a late start and should really do one a week instead of one of month, maybe in March.

I'm still planning on using my extra day this year for a day of sewing, a whole day of sewing, a whole day of sewing and no cooking, a whole day of sewing, no cooking and pjs. The fine folks at Superior Threads are sponsoring a giveaway to go along with my extra day plans, be sure to stop back by Wednesday, February 29th.

  3. Your Evening Bloom blocks look so nice! It is a quilt I want to make. Last year I brought background fabrics for it, but that is as far as I have gotten. Can't wait to see what you make on the 29th.

  11. I have been in love with your applique blocks since you started working on them. So glad to see them back. You do such beautiful applique. Your BOM blocks are gorgeous too. Is the one little corner piece supposed to be turned different? It will be fun to see it all come together.

  12. Beautiful projects. Wouldn't it be great to have enormous design walls! Could they ever be large enough? - Not in my space ;-)
    Thanks for sharing your work.

  13. Your blocks are beautiful, as usual! I really like the fussy-cut center of your Memories of Provence block - it just makes the whole design so perfect!

  14. Loving your blocks! If I remember correctly, you're doing needle turn applique on the Blackbird project?

    For me the 29th will be an extra work day! Wish it could be sewing, pjs and no cooking but it's just not to be.

  16. Absolutely lovely! I know you do tend to make a few changes with almost every pattern you make, but I think the change in the Memories of Provence block might possibly accidental. An easy fix though...

  20. Hi Again Thelma! I have been doing a bit of blog hopping this morning and I just had to come back and ask you a question that I have been meaning to ask for a while now. Do you realize that from your delightful blog and wonderful posts, many bloggers use a vocabulary that has sprung specifically from your quilting methods and habits??? I have seen many different 'Thelma' terms used in describing they way people are changing up patterns to meet their own liking just a bit better...but today, on Becky, the Quilting Booklady's blog, I found a post from Feb. 7th where she says "I plan to "Thelmasize" it a bit." It may have already been called to your attention, but just in case it hadn't I just wanted to let you know that yet another new term (at least to me) has been added to the 'Thelmalizing' word list that seems to continue to grow. It just goes to show Thelma, what a huge impact your beautiful quilts, quilting skills, methods and wonderful blog are having all over blog land. Big Hugs....
