February Goals

My February goal for A lovely Year of Finishes is to make something with my red fabric... especially my collection of red strings.  I am thinking about a stacked coins quilt.  

I chose a color of fabric which I don't have as much of, because February always seems to go by so much faster than January.  I know it is only 3 days shorter, but you know what I mean. 

I feel like I got a head start on the reds, because I made these blue and red quilts at the end of January. 

The large one especially used up a lot of red.  Check out this pieced backing!

I used about 5 yards of red fabric for these quilts. 

Then the rest of the month I will continue to make things with my stash.  It is so much fun making something useful with fabric that has been in my closet for nearly 9 years. 



  1. Can't wait to see what you make with those reds!!

  2. Red is a great color - and for February!! I understnad about those 3 less days - they throw me too! I love your American Hero quilts - the back of that little on - that you can see all the quilting - awesome!!

  3. Awesome quilts! Good luck with your red coin quilt this month. I have been using scraps lately,and it does feel great to use up fabric already in the stash.

  4. Beautiful quilts, can't wait to see what else you make with the rest of your reds!

  5. What a gorgeous stack of reds! I love red!
