February Blocks Finished ..... Fiona H

I have had fun stitching my February blocks for the Stitch A Long ..... I LOVED getting the Block of the Month package from Anni at Hatched and Patched as I do love her fabrics ....




I have changed a couple of the little blocks and made them additional hearts because I liked the hearts better than the square in the pattern .... as usual I always seem to change something ....  



I am enjoying seeing everyone's finishes .... they all look so different and lovely !  Great stitching everyone !!   Fiona  @Peaceful Threads

Lovely blocks, I like the slightly different look you're getting using blanket stitch for the applique...always nice to put our own stamp on a quilt with a subtle change here and there...
