I haven’t been just sitting around whistling Dixie.  I’ve been busy making this wall hanging.  I thought it was perfect for February.  The pattern is from Kim Schaefer’s Calendar Quilts.  It was fun to make, especially because I used fabric from my scrap pile.  As I was searching through my scraps, it made me grateful that I hadn’t yet gotten around to organization (yes, it is on my list).  I had dreams of cutting all my scraps into specific sizes and placing them in orderly little stacks in project boxes like I had seen on other blogs.  I visualized taking pictures and showing you how I was organized too.  Well, that ain’t happening!  Because I’m lazy, I was able to find all kinds of red fabrics in the various sizes that the pattern called for.  Let’s face it, it is doubtless I’ll ever get organized, and if I do it will probably just be to gather like-color fabrics into a specific tub, which I admit would be a big help. 

I just looked and hope I get around to making the March wall hanging.  It is darling with flowers and birds.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.

Love, love, love the heart wall hanging! My scrap organization system is a king size blanket bag. Everything just gets crammed in any way it will go.
