My guild's challenge for February was to make a quilted piece out of one new fat quarter plus all the leftover scraps from our last sewing project, which for me was repairing the dresden quilt plate.

I had to put this aside in order to finish a project for work (will I ever finish anything I start in the sewing room this month?) but I'm hoping to pick it up this weekend.
