February Staying Focused!

I forgot to share the the finished stitching on my English Paper Pieced Applique block for my Happy Days quilt but got it done well before the halfway point of the month.  I did get one more prepped to sew this month a rather detailed Hawaiian Applique block that I forgot to take a picture of but will share that soon.
 Earlier in January I got these fun zippers from A Threaded Needle to make up a planned project.  As a bonus I was gifted the two pieces of ribbon.
 I also ordered some variegated Sashiko and solid colour threads.  They came in the sweet raindrop and ice cream bag.
 But these Handbag zipper from Fabric Depot was my favourite zipper purchase for a new Bionic Mother Lode Bag.  The pattern is still being finalized but I'm slowly gathering the tools for making it.
 I added another BOM to do with my friend Rita.  This is All Around the Town by Susan Garman who recently passed away.
 I've prepped the templates for two blocks and they will be worked on this month.
 This one will be for March.
 I have one short term project that I started last nice with these challenge fabrics.  I got the bones done and hope to get some quilting started before adding another layer.  I forgot they changed the deadline and thought I had missed it and now want to submit it.  More later once I have it finished.
I've got my Mika, Sunflower Gathering blocks to start working on when I get back home today.  Off to have my eyes checked and then to the Dentist.  Hope you manage to Stay Focused in February.

Beautiful piece and stitching and love the new pattern, that looks fun to do.
I didn't realize she had passed, seems we have lost a lot of wonderful quilters.

You are doing well with your projects and the new pattern is a good addition. Regards, Nessie

Fantastic projects and now that you've had you'd eyes checked you'll be good to go long and hard. It will be fun to work with a friend doing Sue Garman's pattern.
