I was not going to make any little quilts myself for this month's challenge but those prints were calling out to be used and well, the blocks were already finished so I really didn't have that much to do to pull it all together. My friend Julia offered to do the bindings so I said YES! Now they are done and I can move on to the new quilt for March and try to motivate all of you to get another one completed.
Love the way this one turned out!
This one, not so much . . . Maybe I should have used an inner border or a darker binding. It's just not right somehow. Kind of blah. Maybe the ugly prints aren't ugly enough!
I like the one with the blue border much better than I like the one with the purple border.
But the blocks sure do shine nicely! Didn't expect that.
I gave the blue one to Julia since she's having a stressful time right now getting ready to sell her house. And then move far away from me this summer! Most of her sewing/quilting stuff is packed away and I think she's going through withdrawal. So I let her do the bindings for me because I knew she was itching to get her hands on a needle and her reward was the blue one.

March 1 will be here in a flash and I will help you get started on the quilt for THAT month. I'm getting excited just thinking about it and if you do not wish to make the quilt the way it is in the book (Remembering Adelia this time), well, I already have a cool little version in mind for you that will be easy as pie . . . I can't wait to show it to you on Thurs. I'll bet I can get Julia to do that binding too.
