February Block for "Seasons of the Heart" BOM

Here it is......the block for February from the original designs I did back in 2003. Each of these designs if very simple to stitch. All are done in cotton fabrics and all are embellished with embroidery stitches.

As you can see in the photo above, I reversed the heart pieces by having the larger heart be plaid and the small one solid. In my sketch, I drew it the opposite way. You take the creative path and do what pleases you! :-) Also, the block colors did not scan "true" and the red is more vibrant than the brick red that it appears in the photo.

Now about the words that come with each design........I'm going to have to ask you to "bear with me" and we will get to that in March............

and that's because I am going to need to address a few other items and can't get to that this month. Hope you will understand! Now I promised a snowman in addition to the heart design and here is what he will look like.....but this is not the pattern you'll need. This is one I gave to students a few years ago and I will enlarge it and create the pattern pieces and post it mid-week.

I have to finish my business taxes, need to get to the dentist, have to get the details finalized on our crazy quilting exhibit and then there are a few family things that take precedence right now. I have a "full plate" but I am happy to share my BOM and the challenge I took to bring you a new snowman design each month, too. It's just going to be a little crazy for the next couple of weeks, so, here's what to watch for.................

*about 8:00 this evening (CST) I'll be posting the photo and info on my "Hearts and Roses Giveaway". It's all ready to go and you will have just 48 hours to pop in and add your name for a chance to win!! You will be able to begin leaving comments at midnight February 1. When you come back, there will also be a new quilt in my blog header. :-)

*next item up will be "Tea and Stitches" on Wednesday, February 4th. My plan is to post the pattern for this snowman design that day, too.

*following that, I'll be posting another ornament on "Christmas is Love - Keeping Christmas all year long"

*then there will be a little Valentine project coming up........and on February 12th my husband will draw the winner of my journal in the "One World-One Heart" Giveaway.

*and I'll be busy in the background working on crazy quilting projects and you'll find more on that when I post to Miss Martha's Crazy Quilting Circle.

*My Grandson is coming at the end of the month, so we'll be posting a project then and I'll also be updating the "Sew and Share" link later this month.
*there's one more thing I wanted to mention and I can't think of what it is..........back soon when it comes to me. :-)

OOPS! For those of you that signed up to receive the patterns via e-mail, I have re-sent the February BOM info with the PDF's attached! Sorry, I was so excited at the number of people who have signed up and totally forgot to add the PDF files! Also, if you signed up and you have not received the files please send me an e-mail at I still have about four people that I am unable to send files to because there is no blog or e-mail link in the comment that was left. You may sign up for the BOM at anytime so just send an e-mail and I will add you to the list. :-)

How do you do all you do??? Amazing - love the pattern.

Heather said...

Yeah! I get tired just thinking about all that you do!

But we sure are glad you do it. ;o)

Sandi, I received your BOM email, but unfortunately, the pattern wasn't attached. I hate to ask you to do one more thing, but could you possibly re-send it?

By the way, I love the February block!

Hi, Sandi! I just posted a photo of my February block. It was so much fun to work on. Thank you! I think I may just have to do the snowman series, too. ;o)
