Katy's February Quilt So Far...

Hey Everyone!!
I wanted to tell you what a total pleasure it has been checking the mailbox every day this month...and the pure excitement I have had opening up all of your lovely packages.

The latest one I received had an extra few blocks in it...Jennifer, thank you soooooooooo much!

I'm still waiting for I think two more, and am in the process of making a yellow block, so in total I think I will have 5 columns of 3, and then fill the spaces with white sashing. I think I will bind it with a striped binding, probably blue and white, and the backing will also likely be a blue... I will post pictures of my progress!

And tonight is our first local quilters night...a small subset of the International Stashes group that are local to Waterloo are going to come over to my house to chat, brainstorm, and learn some techniques through group-think and group-cut and maybe even group-sew. I'm really looking forward to it! I feel like such a beginner and this is just the way to get better and try new things. I'm very excited to try the flying geese pattern (I had ideas about using a flying geese pattern for the February quilt, so I'm thrilled to test the method out this month! Thanks Meg!!!)


  1. Hi Katy -- doesn't look like mine has arrived yet, but I just mailed it last Monday or so, so maybe another couple of days to Canada. Let me know if it does not arrive, but hopefully there won't be a problem. Your quilt looks beautiful so far!! xo Meg

  2. This quilt is going to be gorgeous!

  3. Mine should be on its way. Hopefully it has made it since this post:) Looking forward to see how everything looks together
