Sweet Home BOM

What was I thinking? As if I did not have any projects to work on, I signed up for a Block of the Month with Sweet Home Quilt Company in Conyers, GA. I'm always thinking about December that I want to make a Christmas quilt and of course it is too late for it by then so this year, I'm starting early!The pattern is Comfort and Joy, pictured above, by a local designer/s. They show two different colorways but the fabrics in the Sweet Home kit are the lighter and brighter.
Here are the fabrics for the first month, already cut in strips for starters (I liked that).
I uploaded my pictures wrong so above is the February kit - some log cabins, churn dashes and lots of half square triangles and one little square in a square block.
Here is the January kit - nine patches and flying geese - all sewn and squared up, but of course they won't be in this order! Now I am ready for the March packet. The rest is applique - will I do it by hand or machine? Hmmm, since I have Flower Pots going already by hand, this just may be machine...we'll see!
