Wishing You a Happy February From My Porch!

February On my Peaceful Porch, 21 x 36 inch porch quilt by O.V. Brantley, 2024. NFS.

We are blessed with great weather in Atlanta so we have great porch days year round, but February is finicky. It may be cold or it may be hot, but we love February because we know spring is just around the corner. Meanwhile we celebrate Black History Month and those we love.

I confess that I love Block of the Months (BOM). Some days I just don't want to think creatively. I just want to sit down and quilt. I use BOM's for those days. Thank you Stitchin Heaven for your wonderful porch quilt series.

The quilts in this series were an immediate "must do" for me because I have a screened back porch where I spend many peaceful hours. The fact that the applique is precut and fused makes it all the better for relaxed quilting. This series of 12 little happy quilts will become part of my heirloom collection of quilts and will be displayed on my porch for years to come.

Each quilt in the series measures 21 X 36 inches. I substituted African fabric for the back. There is a hanging sleeve on the back for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.

I signed it on the front and added a peace charm.

So here's to February, the month of love!!
