Two for February Book of the Month

February's Book of the Month was Jane Hardy Miller's French Braid TransformationI enjoyed this book, as there were clear instructions for each quilt, and for each size.
I chose "Stacks", using up fabrics from my stash.





Here's a picture of the quilting Love the feathers!
I was in a bit of a hurry to get Stacks done, so I did a fold over binding, instructions for which can be found here 

And because I had leftover blocks, I made a second one, Stacks II, with a slight variation:  no side sashing, three columns of blocks, , and a top border piece.

And here's a closeup of the quilting (no feathers on this one!)

Hope to get another done from the book, but it is almost time for the March Book of the Month!

Happy Quilting!

  3. Oh, the fabrics are great. Love the dots and brights. The quilting choice really worked on these two.
