My One Monthly Goal for February was to put labels on finished quilts. One evening I went to work and got them done.
I print multiple labels on printer-fabric sheets. Some include my name and others are just Hilyard Studio. I write the name, date, and occasion when those are relevant. When a quilt doesn't have a destination I don't include that information. (If I donate a quilt that I made in 2017 to an event in 2021 I don't want it to appear that I dusted off an old project, even if that's pretty much what I did.
Here's the stack. The February OMG Finish Link Up is here
I surprised myself and quilted two flimsies this week. (I labeled them, too.)
The zigzag pinwheels were shown in last week's post. (I used the rest of the blue-green check [see it in the labeled stack, above?] and dipped into the endless supply of mini 9-patches for the pieced back.
I used a variety of blues for the back of the jewel box quilt. I made the top in early January as part of the Civil War Repro Stash Reduction Project.
I think this one has a name -- New Tricks, because the setting demonstrates that you can teach an old block new tricks.
Anne Youngson's debut Meet Me at the Museum is a lovely epistolary novel about two lonely people in late middle age. Tina is a farmer's wife in East Anglia. Anders is a museum curator in Denmark. Over the course of sixteen months their correspondence allows both to articulate their innermost feelings. The ending is unpredictable, which is a good thing.
Desolation Mountain is #17 in the Cork O'Connor series. I've now listened to all of them -- in order -- with the excellent narration by David Chandler. (If I ever hear William Kent Krueger speak I'm sure I'll be surprised that he doesn't sound like Chandler.) It's been great to see the O'Connor kids grow up, to see Cork and Rainey's relationship deepen, and of course to know that the Ojibwe mide (wise man) Henry Meloux is still around.
