My February Homework is done....

Now I'm waiting for March work load.
The Mighty Lucky Sewing Club's lesson for February was using negative space and focusing on one particular fabric.  I hope you are attracted to the purple spirals....if not...oh well!  Many of the participants are doing more piecing and making several blocks.  I need small wall hangings, so while not knowing what the future blocks will bring, I'm hoping for 12 interesting wall decorations.

This block is part of Pat Sloan's Mystery Garden.  I'm hoping to use white/back fabrics for the backgrounds.  

 Stitchery Dickory Dock's BOM February block is shown here.  I'm using yards of dark purple as background for all the blocks with hopes of using it all.

These blocks are from a kit taking up room in my cupboard.  There are at the first stage of completion.  The instructions require this blocks to be paired and made into contrasting half-square triangles.  I've decided to take it one more step and make hour glass blocks.  The batiks are beautiful and fun to work with, but I'm not keen on the recommended pattern.

What have you been working on?  Post pictures in comments, especially if you're doing the same on-line BOM's!

These two blocks are for our Modern Bee that meets at Stitched Studio.  We're almost to the end of the first year.  The snow storms in December and January kept us from meeting so we have two blocks due on the 29th.  

Stitched Studio is continuing the Modern Bee with more times and days.  The book will be changing for some of us, since we've done 10 or more of the blocks.  Vintage Modern Blocks will be our new book incorporating piecing and paper piecing.  Should be fun!
