March is coming to a close. Will it go out like a lamb?
After mild weather for most of winter, which spoiled us, Mr. Winter came back just a week before the official end. We got quite a bit of snow!
March was a short sewing month for me as we headed to visit our kids for 10 days in warmer weather!
However, I did work to accomplish my goals!
My first goal was to complete my leader/ender baby quilt for donation to
This quilt used squares that I over cut for my niece's 1st baby quilt and sat around my sewing room for way too long. She is 2 1/2 years old.
The pink is very light so I emphasized the greens.
The quilting is concentric squares around the mini pieced squares and loops in the border.
It is labeled and ready for donation! Finishes at 34" x 39 1/2"
My second goal was to finish piecing the Elephant Parade quilt and get it to the flimsy stage.
I love how this quilt is turning out. I just had to add a unexpected pop of color. It is Kona cotton Wasabi. Lorna over at Sew Fresh Quilts does a great job with her tutorials. These blocks are fun to make!
I ordered this fabric for the backing. It just arrived! I have some work to do!
My third goal for March was to decide on the pattern for the modern wedding quilt I will be making. I'm going to use a pattern from this book.
The couple lives in the city so....
I will be making the quilt using the City Bank pattern.
