My February Finish is done!!! 8-)

Not washed as of yet because I just made the last few stitches on the binding, so you still see my quilt markings on the boarder... They will have to wait to be washed out till after my weekend retreat, but it is done, done, done!!! Woohoo!...

Our Wonky Bits group only saw 5/13 of us crawl out in the cold today. -34C ...brrrrrr...

The photo at the side here is a layout of blocks that we were playing with a bit today. It is Lp's lovely handy work... Going to look great hanging in her stairway when done! 8-)

Retreat, 1 more sleep! Time to go pack! 8-)
I shall catch up with you all on Monday! Have a great weekend! 8-)

Love your quilt. Quite the juxtaposition - the straight vertical and horizontal lines of the log cabin blocks versus the free flowing rounded flower "blocks".
