Because I was working on a lot of projects this week, I chose to get the three small stalet blocks done - they take just a few minutes to do. BUT, for some reason one went missing and I had to whip up another. If and when (maybe never) the MIA starlet appears - I'll add it to the box.
Our March Quilt Guild meeting was a "Movie & Popcorn" night with viewing the U-Tube tutorials for the 5-Minute and 10-Minute blocks by Suzanne McNeill. I had made up blocks and samples to demo after each - now I need to finish these off. This was I runner I made with the 5-minute block and is ready to 'turn-back' the geese and quilt it up. Yes, Katie Q, I am still playing with that fabric you sent me - right down to the last bit into the fabric food chain. And it's green!

I have been making a lot of blocks all week - just to keep up with all the quilt and block alongs. I pulled these two greens for potential background fabric for the next Forest block. I am leaning toward the pine one - just need to measure (it's actually three scrap pieces) and make sure I have enough.
I will be linking up with Saturday's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge
I hope everyone is on track with the Hands2Help - the postage stamp quilt is at 'flimsy' stage and I hope to get that basted out and quilted this weekend. I have pledged two quilts, so the second one will be on track for May.
