Still working

Well I do have some more of my Valentines Day Quilt finished, but didnt get a picture taken of it yet. I am going to wait until its finished to take a picture. Yesterday was spent going through all the fabric I have (its not very much) but I sorted it by color and size. I was looking for a background fabric for my Valentines Quilt and seems like none of my peices were big enough with an exception of a few. I did manage to find a green background with little white hearts all over it, so it will be my Christmas/Valentines I have it all ready for machine quilting.

Here are some pictures of what I am working on. I usually have an applique that I can do while watching TV in the evening when my husband comes home and wants to spend some time together. It keeps me busy while watching "manly" TV shows. Here is the fabric I am using for the quilt.

And here I have cut the peices for the block out of freezer paper and selected the colors to use this month. The greens and yellow will be in all the blocks but I have different shades of blue, all on the white background.
Also on the To Do list for today is read up on my quilting basics. After making my Valentines Quilt I know I am doing something wrong because I didnt sew in perfectly straight lines. Well its just a practice quilt so its ok, but I need to study up a little....and here is my study material.
Thanks for reading,
Oh and if anyone knows how to add a siggy at the end of my blogs I would love to know...thanks.

I have Machine Quilting Made Easy...took a class with that one. It is a good resource. I would love to know any info you figure out to help with keeping things straight, I have that problem too!

The only thing I can think of that I didnt do is pin. I should have pinned because I do so much better when I pin but I get lazy sometimes.
