I am keeping my promise!
I seriously can't believe I am actually getting these quilts done! 
This is exciting, and refreshing.
I like walking into my studio and seeing now 3 less unfinished tops!
Should have done this a long time ago.
here is February's finish.

As you can see, it's a traditional sampler.  I used this to teach at our local quilt store. 
It hung in the shop, unfinished, all the years I taught.  We are talking about 10 years ago, now. We chose to make it out of timeless fabrics.  It is made with templates rather than rotary cutting, and I machine pieced and quilted it.

I love the border fabric, wish I could find more like it today.

This one is March's finish.  Several of the fabrics are from the Lewis and Clark collection of several years ago.
I think it looks masculine and may give it to our son in law.  

Well, that's it for now.
I have chosen the April  quilt, but still have to purchase the back for it.
I'm on the hunt.
One of the downsides of finishing a quilt quite a while after you have pieced it is, it's not always so easy to find fabric that works with it for the back and binding.  I'm not all that into matchy-matchy, but I like it to look as though it belongs, like I put some thought into it.
What are you favorite online places to buy fabric?

See ya soon,
