Design Wall Color Palette and QOV edition

I came home Sunday night and completely took over the WHOLE front room!! We had our sew day Sunday and made a LOT of things that I had to check out again... and I got to sew Saturday evening, so had my own things all over the floor - Life is good!




First Off - the February Color Palette - designed by Vicki  is pictured below.

 This is my quilt - the wickedly easy pattern from ByAnnie.com  was being discussed and I did n't have a plan in mind for my fabrics - I modified the pattern a little, in that I made a few continuous colors thru it, but I kind of like it..... its different .... that's for sure.



And the - our sew day - I took 42 thirty million 10 inch squares, and we all cut and sewed, and cut and sewed.... and made a gazillion blocks.......


Then we started putting the blocks into tops - and we got 3 complete tops finished, and a LOT in progress.... some were taken home to be finished.... and we were tickled.


The pattern we used can be found here:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxC-0T5lXw4

I LOVE it!! They use a layer cake - which is 42 pieces.... but we used 48 pieces - and that way
we could lay them out 6 x 8 which gave us
54 x 72 inch quilts!!




here we are - all working so hard, and maybe snacking a little itty bitty bit!!
