A February Full of Finishes!

I am quite proud of myself.
February was a very productive and satisfying month for me.
I finished (now that is a word you will not often see me use!)
3 items on my UFO/WIP priority list, in addition to completing 4 small quilts, and managed to fit in 50 siggy blocks.
I have made 3 more CW blocks for Barbara Brackman's BOW.
Decided to add in a little gold...the red, white and blue got a little stale for me.
Kinda like that khaki colored background behind the blocks. 
Just got a new Bonnie Blue basics in TOWQS that might be the perfect sashing color for these puppies.  Hmmm, food for thought.

I have updated my UFO/WIP list to include 3 new projects I am anxious to start and hopefully someday finish.  Kathleen Tracy over at the Small Quilt Talk Yahoo Group is having a UFO challenge.  Even though binding my Calico Comfort, her design by the way, was already on my list, I have entered it as my challenge to complete. 
Yah, I know what you are thinking!

So now I am ready to March right on in to a new month!
Do you think I could come up with a Shamrock Lil Twister design?
