After digging around in my messy sewing room looking in boxes, bags and finally on my shelves, I came up with enough pink scraps to finish my Soul Searching block for February. I did use a few of them more than once, but that's what using scraps is all about. I didn't have to buy any, so my stash must be dwindling, right? (Right, you can hardly notice any gone at all, to be honest).
Since we've had so much snow and cold weather these last few weeks, I've gotten some needed quilting finished. Here are a couple quilts I did for friends.
This lady prefers very limited quilting and usually says just a little "stitch it in the ditch". I did that, but it needed a lot more because of all the open white areas. She likes very poofy, not flat quilts. Most people would have wanted more quilting since it looks like it's not quite finished, but she was very happy with the results, and that's what is most important - to please the customer. Different strokes for different folks, as the saying goes.
On the patchwork that circles the center of the quilt, I put a very simple vine with leaves keeping with the Fall theme.
Edited to add information on pattern name and the book it was in.

That's all for now. I'm linking up with So Scrappy, so go on over and see all the other Pink blocks that people are working on this month.
