March NewFO


March was a a challenge in itself with my computer being knocked down and the scramble to get things working - some things saved and some things lost, but it all marches on (March /marches HA).


I took part in another 12" Mini swap with the theme for St. Patty Day.  Received a great box of scraps from fellow blogger - Selena - and boy that has been fun to play in.  Project Quilt Challenge was using a Publication (page28) for inspiration and that was fun.  And the new 'Forest' QAL started and the first block was the Pilated Woodpecker - which I can relate to as we have one of those odd fellows grace our yard thru Summer and Fall.


There was the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap with the theme - Animals and had a partner who was a new kitty owner.  Another project started with scraps from the 'fun box' - I actually have 6 projects that I am playing with right now from that box!  A cute mini from Konda's book 'Simply Charming-Minis' - Cherry On Top.  A great book for minis and I have another pattern picked out to use for April's Doll Quilt Swap.  And the last Project Quilting Challenge piece - Hurrah Spring theme - and I did up a small cross stitch and fabric framed.  I love our returning early (spring) birds, flowering fruit trees so the obvious choice with this project.

I ,also, finished off two UFO's - Jelly Roll quilts that just needed quilting and binding - but those photos were lost in the computer dilemma and have since gone on to new homes.  And another quilt went off to the longarmer and should return in April for it's binding/label.
