This is today's project on my sewing table.  It is Kadette, my #4 or February UFO with (Thirteen in '13 Challenge).  As you can guess it is a paper pieced project that is small.  The finished project is 13 1/2" square.  I have all the papers pieced now.  Next up is assembling the flag and stars into blocks...then to rows...then....  I'm hoping to have this done today.  The pattern is United We Stand by Mary Herschleb Designs.

The next two photos are my February finishes.  I got them back last week from Kerry's Quilting.  First up is a Bonnie Hunter 2011 Challenge that she coined Cheddar Bow Ties.  Did you know that Curly Cue is another name for Bow Tie?  I collected blues and cheddars for about a year.  The blocks finish at 3".

 The second is a Karen Eckmeier project that I took as a workshop at Road to California Quilt Show in January 2012.  The design is Scrappy Layered Log Cabin.  I just might have to add a little bling to it if my pal Sue has some extra.  I call my project Krayons.  I used a decorative stitch that I hadn't used before when adding the triangles on two sides of the border.  The quilting accentuates all the color of the logs.  It may look difficult, but it was fun putting this one together.

I'm already liking Kadette.
Kurly Kues is amazing. The layout is beautiful and the variety of shades you have used give it such movement and depth.

I like the shape the small quilt is taking on, very nice. I also like Kurly Kues, it is super, The log cabin isn't my favorite, but diffently a new twist.
