February's Whiggly Whimsy ~


The last day of February is here, and I have done some work on my quilt top for Terry's sew-along! I knew I still did not want a "just white" background, and I have wanted to use this red square dot print....(I wonder, does anyone recognize it?)   :-}

Looking through my charm square packs, I found 2 of the "Circa 1934" packs, and thought that they would work perfectly for the job. 

I'm pretty sure I want to go a bit larger than the 56" finish size the pattern calls for. 

 I am adding a bit of this and that; I can't leave well enough alone, lol :-}


 ~the finished table runner was my practice 
of the pattern...again, no plain background~

AND----My Sweetie is home!
"What are you taking my picture for?"

 "Because I want folks to know how happy I am, and why!!"

"Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful." Psalm 116:5


  1. Nice for you to have Larry home! I am looking forward to seeing more progress on your new quilt,
