Hampton Ridge Month # 2 quilt blocks done... now there are 8

May I just say how addictive these blocks are ?

Each one even more fun then the last

I just finished Hampton Ridge  month #2 blocks 5 thru 8

Here is all 8 of them on my design wall.....

and here is Month #3 just waiting for me to play with :-D

A few of you have asked what quilt shop I am receiving this BOM from.  First of all this BOM was a very generous  Christmas gift from my dear friend Doreen at Aunt Reen's Place

The quilt shop I am receiving the BOM of the month from is  Kelly Ann's Quilting Shop .  They are so nice at this shop and very organized . You can find them here

 Finished a few UFO's so that I could start my HAMPTON RIDGE BOM and  so my journey begins !

 I have just completed the 4 blocks for month #1

You may notice the little # attached to each block

this sheet of #'s was included so that I could keep track of my blocks when I am ready to sew the top together

now onto Month #2  I can't wait :-D   Just look at those yummy fabrics !

A Little French General Heart Quilt

It is starting to look like VALENTINES DAY at my home !

The heart quilt has been on my to -do list ever since I saw it on Pleasentree blog
Merumo posted this " Secret Recipe for You  quilt "  on her blog 2/9/11.

I made mine from leftover scraps of French General fabric I had and the white with the little heart vines fabric I used  is from my leftover Midwinter Reds fabric.   I used a Judie's 25th Anniversary by Judie Rothermel for the border fabric  . You can find her recipe for this quilt here

Here are a couple more  Valentine quilts that I like to display in my home the month of February

I have even decorated my front porch !

 And I can not forget my Little Redwork Calendar girl block ! She is just Too Cute !

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day !

December Redwork Girl block done

 I just completed my December block  for my Calendar Girls quilt I started with Doreen in 2012.   Doreen created a "Christmas Geese" border  for this  redwork block.  I really enjoyed paper piecing these flying geese !

Here is all of my blocks I have completed so far.  We are using Rouenneries Deux  French General  fabric by Moda for all of our borders .  I have also posted a picture of my progress on the side bar of my blog.  Just 2 blocks left in need of a border design and then this Calendar Girls UFO quilt will be ready to assemble.
