Hello Everyone,

I hope that you are all having a great week! I do want to say that all my thoughts and prayers go out to all of you in Australia. Please stay safe.

I know many of you are getting ready for Valentine's Day and so am I. A little more low key here though. Cards and gifts were made. All done! 

I have also been playing with a new die that I received for my AccuQuilt. I just love this one, it has nice gentle curves and gives a fantastic result. Here is what I have done.

First, I chose black and white fabric that both had wonderful, brightly colored dots all over them. I have an extensive "dot" collection. I collect this fabric wherever I go. Then I cut equal amounts of each of the fabrics into the two shapes, shown below.

Great so far! Love them! You can see the shapes, when cut, have little notches to match the centers of each. This is fantastic when you are ready to sew.

Once I had them all cut, it took about 10 minutes, I started to sew the units together then placed them on the design wall. This was the first mix I had. I lived with it for a few days, tweaking it here and there. 

Then finally settled on this design. These are all sewn together! It is now a quilt top waiting for me to quilt it! I love it!

This one is for a friend, but I think I will be making one for myself too!

In other news, you can now view my February Newsletter online here. I have some wonderful links in the newsletter, so go check it out.  Also, my gallery has been updated again.  Check in the sidebar, on my site, under recent additions.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Until next time,
