It's Not Like I Haven't Been Busy

I guess I was so busy I managed to let an entire month go by without blogging.  Or maybe it's that whole February hibernating thing I have going on.   Oh, let's just go with the "Busy" thing.  Here's what I've been up to.  

My February finish!!  A baby quilt for a little girl being born any day now. 

I worked from my stash for this one after I found this cute pink print in my novelty fabrics. 

Then I made 26 of these scrappy pineapple blocks for a block swap with some online friends......

......and 5 of these blocks for another swap.

I found some scrappy blue strips in my sewing room so I started putting them together for a quilt for our great-nephew due in May.

After that, I started on a Star Wars quilt at the request of our grandson, Aidan.  There isn't any Star Wars fabric currently available, but I found some Darth Vader fabric on eBay for the backing and borders and also this panel by Lucas Films Ltd.

I cut up the panel......

......then made some filler blocks (still trying to use up that stash!) 

All I have to do is finish filling it in with black and it will be ready to quilt. 

And, needless to say, I will have one happy Jedi grandson!   

I also made some pillowcases for the Million Pillowcase Challenge and I got a LOT of work done on the UFO I told you about in this post.

So I guess I haven't been hibernating at all.  Just not talking about what I've been up to as much as I should be!
