February blocks done....

These are my February blocks


I have been doing the applique in needleturn.... which takes me quite a while... my basket handle is a bit wonky....but I will leave that to add to the character of my quilt!!!


The blocks have been trimmed to size now and are safely in their little plastic container waiting for the March ones..........

It's been great to see all the different versions ... they are coming along well - and the encouragement is wonderful too
