A Funny Thing……

Funny thing happened in February…….it slipped by!  Holy smokes!  I think that was the fastest month ever!  I had planned to do more posts in February but then it was over.  Well, there went that plan.  (Now it is Mid-March and I started this post at least a week ago!)

Anyway people, moving on…….

We had sewing Saturday the second Saturday of the month and I made this cute St. Patties Day Wall hanging.  I saw this Irish Knot somewhere and decided to recreate it.

I had the annual February Quilt Retreat with all “The Girls”.  My quilting partners in Crime, co-quiltspirators, ok that’s all I’ve got.

I completed 3 tops and started a 4th.  Three of them were my own design that I came up with while at the retreat.

I absolutely love the fox in the center panel of this quilt!  I also made this small, simple wall hanging with this same fabric.

Funny thing about this fabric line.  I had bought the individual animal panels like you see in the second picture along with 2 charm packs and a little yardage for binding and backing.  Then some time later, months, I bought the fox panel from the top one and another charm pack or two.  I ended up having some yardage and 4 charm packs of this fabric line.  Guess I liked it!

I also threw together this little snowman/snowflake wall hanging.  I think it turned out cute.

I also started another one out of some bee fabric.  I will share that one when I get it together.  In other news…..

My First Healing Quilt will be ready to go out next week!  I am so excited!  I can not wait for this program to get started!  For those of you not in the know.  I have started a Healing Quilts research program that is for research for a future program I plan to start.  I am creating lap size Healing Quilts (Quilts infused with Healing Energy and Prayers) and sending them and a journal out to people with chronic illness/cancer who want to participate.  All they have to do is use the quilt for a minimum of 30 minutes every day and HONESTLY record the information asked in the journal.  When 4 weeks is up, they just have to send the journal back to me.  Simple!  They get a free lap quilt out of it for their efforts, just by being honest and taking a bit of time out of their day to record what they are noticing is happening.

I am so excited!  The journals are ready to go out.  The label is going on the first quilt and ready to go!!  The second healing quilt I should have back from the quilter’s next week.  Then binding and label and out it can go!

 

Well, that is all I have for right now.  Seems like it condenses so quickly for such activity!

 

Always,

Gentrie
