Stonefields & Special Deliveries in February

February was a month filled with surprises here in northern VA.
Usually the coldest time of winter, this year it's been warm with rain showers. Spring like weather has even fooled mother nature.
Cherry trees in my neighborhood are blooming 6 weeks early.

The mailman also brought me a couple surprise deliveries...
Wendy Reed, The Constant Quilter gifted me with a package of 200 different fabric charms in 1930's reproduction. Many of these will be used in my Stonefields quilt. Thank you Wendy, I can't wait to use these fabulous fabrics!

And I won a WIPS be Gone drawing at Angie's - A Quilting Readers Garden. Angie sent me this Beautiful book and I already found a quilt that I would love to make. Thank you Angie!

Here are my final 6" Stonefields blocks for February....

Bordered Hexagons, block 1

Bordered Hexagons, block 2 (the hexie flowers are 2" finished)

Square Peg in a Round Hole, block 1

Square Peg in a Round Hole, block 2

Star in a Star

I managed to complete 8 of the 11 block assignments.

every quilt tells a story...


  1. Your February blocks are delicious! And, yes I think you would definitely do that squirrel quilt justice!

  2. You continue to use such sweet fabric choices in your Stonefields quilt. With the addition of more charm squares you're really going to have fun. Looks like there is some wonderful temptation on your new book.:0)

  3. love your Stonefield blocks and the colors of them are great

  4. The background fabric for the square peg block.....looks like fish bowls but what is in front of them? Interesting conversational print.
    I like the applique part of the pattern with the squirrels. Very fall looking.

  5. I have been watching the temperatures in Virginia lately and was surprised by it. Hope it will be nice and warm when we will travel in a bit over three weeks! Your blocks are lovely and the new pattern you choose is really pretty!

  6. Wonderful blocks.
    Lovely little fabric-squares from your friend.
    Congratulation to the book.
