OMG February 2017

This will be very short and sweet..... I'm recovering from a sinus infection this evening and feel like doing absolutely nothing except sitting under a warm quilt with Rocky purring contentedly in my lap and Victoria playing on TV.  But of course I do want to be sure to get my entry in for the One Monthly Goal for February.


A few months ago, our 5-year-old grandson informed me that he is now too big for his baby quilt because his "feet stick out the bottom" LOL!

Dreaming of Planes is my One Monthly Goal for February 2017.   Below are the pattern and fabrics I had originally intended to use for this quilt....


However, after looking at the fabrics and the design, I decided to go with the fabrics in the first picture instead, using the solids for the planes, the orange dot for the backgrounds, and the stripe for sashings/borders.  Perhaps I'll make pillow cases or pillows from the Minions and Garfield prints :*)

I think I'll have no problem getting this one done by the end of the month because I've simplified the pattern even further by cutting out the pieced planes and replacing them with appliqued ones!

Wish me luck!!!

Hugs & Blessings!

  4. I think the materials you picked out will look great in the quilt. A very good excuse for asking for a new quilt ha ha. Get better soon.

  5. Very cute February header! : )
    I think you made a good call in switching your fabrics. This is going to be a fun quilt (but in my book, applique complicates things). LOL

  6. What a cute idea for your new quilt for Feb. It will look great with the first set of colors too. Hope your sinus infection is long gone by tomorrow. I too have been fighting the same thing. At least we are being spared the terrible respiratory ills that I hear are going around. Get well quickly. OK?

  9. There's something about turning five that makes a child want a new quilt! Grandma's can embrace that and come to the rescue quite happily! Looks like a fun quilt and I love your fabric selections - either one!
