I was motivated ... well into the night. The extra Wonky Rose blocks were made and borders were added. Here's my Lovely Finish for February.
This quilt embodies many of the things I love about group quilts. I am looking forward to quilting it, but until my sewing machine problems are resolved, I'll settle for the knowledge that my perennial work-in-progress is no more. I finished a few other projects this month, but this 11th hour finish feels the most satisfying.
Since everyone seems to be talking about the rose blocks, I plan to put together my notes, which were previously published here and on the Block Lotto and create a print-friendly document for anyone who's interested. Leave me a comment and I'll be sure to email you when it's ready. These blocks really a great way to play with scraps.
If you made some of the word blocks for the Block Lotto that I won three years ago and don't see them ... they could be part of my plan for some back art for this quilt.
