February was a crazy busy month and I just realized I haven't posted my monthly recap. I accomplished a lot, but I really pushed to do so and wore myself out.
I pieced teaching samples for a couple more of my charity patterns, using some of my own fabric and some of PCQ's fabric. I went shopping with friends to a local quilt shop's sale and of course some fabric had to come home with me. No immediate purpose, just stash enhancement. Even so, my stash report is looking good.

February Stash Report:
IN this month: 3 yards (35th Ave. sale)
OUT this month: 9-5/8 yards (Basketweave top, all my fabrics, est. 3-1/4 yards. Spinner top, my light fabric and a few of the darks, 2 yards. Binding for Cabbage Rose tumblers, 3/4 yard. Binding for Sock Monkey Plus, 3/4 yard. New teaching sample for Charity Quilt for Kids, 2-7/8 yards)
IN YTD: 5-1/2 yards
OUT YTD: 16-1/4 yards
YTD Net Change: 10-3/4 yards out
My goals for February were a bit too ambitious and I couldn't get everything done that I had on my list. Plus I added a project at the end of the month that wasn't on the list. In addition, my work with the charity committee has taken some time, including prep for sew days and writing patterns.

It seems I don't have a photo and haven't blogged about finishing the blue floral strip top. I'll have to take photos and post about it next week.

Only four goals on the list for March... I have some non-quilty things going on this month and family will be visiting, so I'm keeping the goals much more manageable this month.
Winding Ways UFO, goal is to finish the flimsy in March
It seems I'm a little behind in blogging, so I'll catch up with the stories of the blue floral strip project and the new Kid Quilt teaching sample in upcoming posts. I'm hoping March won't be as crazy busy as the last few weeks have been!
