February stash report, Leap Day finish, and March OMG

Stash report, February 
In:  32 yards, $41
Out: 17-1/8
YTD
In:  36 yards, $46.50
Out: 35-3/4

The large February influx was 20 yards (4 5-yard pieces) from Lillian's legacy (no cost other than washing and ironing).  I didn't count all of Lillian's fabric when I brought it home when it came because I knew I'd donate most of it to the guild. After I used a lot of it making Care Bags I figured it was time to either officially acquire it or actually pass it along. 

Yesterday evening I made a second tote bag using another Pine Burr block.   

I bought 3-3/4 yards (long quarters) at the quilt shop  .  It is the basis for my March OMG.  Specifically, my goal is to make the blocks for this pattern by Wendy Sheppard. ( You can get it here.)

I've never made a NYB but I have a specific purpose for this one.  Wish me luck! 

Here is the link to OMG March to see what other participants plan to accomplish.
