  1. Wow Joan!~ I love the quilt in your header! Congrat's on getting all your projects finished~ they look great! :-)

  2. Love the quilt in your header, too. Beautiful. Wow, you've had awesome progress in February - wish I could say the same LOL

    "See" you Saturday.

  3. Ooh, I'll take anything made in KT, love it, love it, love it.

    As I think I've told you before - I just love how you showcase your quilts on your porch line. It makes them just shine!!!

    Believe it or not , I just finished my final "listed" CGQC goal yesterday...and look...time to spare...LOL

    I've sewn other things too and last month I shared everything I had sewn. Is that what I am supposed to do or just post the CGQC goals finished? But, I'm sure I will sew something else this month - as I said - time to spare..LOL

  4. Just one more thing - I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pic on your header. Joan - you're amazing!!!!!!!

  5. You have been so busy, to accomplish so much.
    I had to go back and read what I would finish for the month of Feb, and I acheived it, all the spikey bits and at least 6 stars and the centre as a bonus. By the 28th I plan to have the next 6 stars finished as well.

  6. I just finished posting my February finishes to my blog....
    Joan, I love your Blossom Time quilt...so pretty and 'fresh' looking!

  7. I love both you finished quilts and blocks. So nice!!! I also love the quilt in the header !! It's gorgeous!!!!!

  8. I love both of your projects, but that Blossom TIme quilt is particularly sweet. She will love it!!! I wish I could participate in the party but we have disney on ice tickets! Hopefully, equally as fun.

  9. My second finish. http://dandelionquilts.blogspot.com/2010/02/what-is-better-than-1-2-and-giveaway.html

    Thanks for hosting and all of your work, Joan.

  10. My first finish


  11. I'm gonna do applique someday! I bought a book and everything to drool over. Your banner quilt is lovely. Blossom time is perfect for a little girl...will have to 'file' that one away for a future grandbaby. For finishes this month? I knit my first pair of socks...toddler size, but a pair none the less! I was so pleased with myself...my MIL would have been proud too. I have a purse nearly done for DD2 for her 21st bday so that should be another finish...I'm incorporating yoyos in it using that clover yoyo maker....funs stuff and so fast too.

  12. As a PS, I just noticed you are Acadian....I'm married to one! A Cyr originally from NS before the 'grand derangement'. We live in a French community here in northern Maine. Hubby's first language is french. I understand most of the Valley french here but it is very 'franglais' if you know what I mean lol.

  13. What Fabulous February Finishes Joan! Those are outstanding!

  14. Great finishes! I too love your header!

    I have one finish - so far...

  15. All of the projects are beautiful!

    I finally finished mine:


  16. A new header? Love the quilt! Looks like you set a high goal for February. It must feel good to finish so many wonderful projects.

  17. My finishes are posted. :-)
    http://crazyboutquilts.blogspot.com/2010/02/cg-february-finishes.html Thanks Joan! See you Saturday~ ;-)

  18. Finally wrapped up Hidden Stars and it's off to get quilted:

  19. Got my BOM completed and then some....

  20. I have posted my finishes today (Feb. 28th)for February. I finished two of the projects out of three. I finished the little flag quilt and the angel banner. The table runner just seems to want to stay unfinished. I had time but spent it working on stitcheries instead of the applique and quilting it needed to get finished.

  21. All done! http://teachpeggy.blogspot.com/2010/02/yes-yes-yes.html

  22. Joan, here is my link for my CGQC Goals and finishes for the month of February.

    Again thanks to you and Kelly for hosting the Spring Sewing Party.

    And a special thanks to YOU, Joan, for hosting the entire month of February for the CGQC. I know it takes time to cover everything and I appreciate the time you so graciously donate.

    Blessings to you.
