Progress in February

These are 2 projects to share. 
The colorful quilt will be donated to my guild - The Guilt Guild of Greater Houston.
 It started with donated 2 inches strips by my friend Diane H. I made 4 X 4 blocks with the addition of more fabrics from my Bee and the subgroup Bowl Weevils.
Each block is 6 inches square and I have 6 by 8 rows with a total of 48 blocks. The quilt measures 36 inches by 48 inches.
It was quilted on a Bernina 780 using a stencils as a guild. I did not mark the top; but kept referring to the stencil as a (much needed) guide.

This block is my block to the RSC 16 quilt along by: http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/p/rsc16-sampler.html
I am not going to make the column quilt. I will only make 1 block a month on the color she suggests. I just want a very small wall hanging. Please refer to her blog for the directions to make this star and to see what this is all about.
February colors are brown with pink. Better get busy on that.
