Here's my Amethyst block for February of the Classic Meets Modern QAL at Sew at Home Mummy:

Fabrics: Lakehouse dots white on white; Voltage Dot in red and Cross Square in red, Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt;
Red Chevron, The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn

It came together pretty easily though my Y seams aren't perfect. I'm really pleased with my red and white theme and am going to try and use some of the Voltage Dot in each block to tie it together even more. I love seeing all the blocks people have made each month, they all look so different. 

I've got the final flower appliqué block for the butterfly quilt under way. I enjoy picking threads to match fabrics for appliqué, it's my favourite thing next to picking the fabrics themselves!

I can't remember if I gave you any feedback about the big bundle of cheap thread I got from this Ebay shop (sorry if I'm repeating myself). To be honest they are thicker than I would like but they are doing the job. The quilt police would hate them, they are fairly visible. For the mere fact that I got a huge variety of colours for not that much money I am happy with them. If I got serious about doing appliqué though I think I would slowly try to build a collection of colours in a thinner thread. I haven't had any breakages so I know the cotton is strong and for the purposes of making my eldest daughter a quilt that's probably a good thing! Her current job ambitions are to be a scientist, investigator (too much Scooby Doo you can never have too much Scooby Doo!) and a ninja - curious and active about sums her up.
