Improv Quilt Finish Washed and Dried, Cotton & Steel Spectrum Reds, February Butterfly Calendar

Look what I found, Cotton & Steel Spectrum Reds, I forgot I had these.
My 'Uneven Thirds' washed and dried, approx. 23 x 23".

'Uneven Thirds' finished back, Kona cotton solids and a print. 
These are my first 'Uneven Thirds' blocks. I turned them into mug rugs.

February 2019 butterflies.

A break in the storm, view out the back door,

Hello from Rancho Palos Verdes!

Where we have wind and rain off and on. And it's February, time to feature the butterflies on my calendar. My 2019 calendar is published by Cavallini & Co. The butterfly illustrations are from the 19th and 20th century, lovely and cheerful.

And my 'Uneven Thirds' improv small quilt is washed, dried and finished, love that red binding!
The design and colors are my choice.

I was going through my fabric stash and found a fun collection of Cotton & Steel Spectrum Reds. I forgot I had them, so out they came. I'm busy making HST's with them now for borders etc.

That's the news from the rancho, we're wearing our rain coats, and remembering to be thankful.

What do you have on your 2019 calendar?

I'll be by to visit!


  1. On a rainy day, what could be more cheerful than looking at your colorful quilts?
    What a nice surprise to find all those beautiful reds in your stash!
    My first job now is tidying up my work space, fabric, thread and tools. Then I can get started on a new project, yippee!

  2. Your uneven thirds finished beautifully! Can't wait to see what you do with those reds.

  3. Good to see Uneven Thirds ll nicely washed and dried and a lovely find of reds there.

  4. Welcome the rain! It makes a perfect day to sew and quilt.
    Love the spectrum reds from your stash. This is the month to think about that color.
    Congratulations on the Uneven Thirds finishes.

  5. Thank you Ann.
    Yes, rain is a good thing, making staying cozy and warm inside busy with projects a very, very good thing.

  6. Congratulations on your lovely finish and on finding that very appealing pile of red fabrics.
