***Thank you all for commenting on my post looking for the Hooty Hoot fabric. I think I may have found some! Quilters are the best! ***
I think I'm caught up on all my monthly projects for March. Yay! First up is the Village Square block of the month. These are the first 6 blocks all assembled and appliqued.
I finally decided on an applique stitch. Once again, I copied my idol, Robin, who is also doing this BOM. It's simply a mini zig zag, but it's just the perfect touch! It adds just a touch of whimsy, I think. (you should be able to click on the pictures for a closer look)
Next is my Snow Days embroidery. The first picture are the blocks 8 & 9 from February, but I was a little late in finishing them....
And here is block 10 for March....again click for a closer look! :)
The April "Count on It" banner. Sorry for the lousy pictures....it's so dark and cloudy outside and makes my house too dark for good pictures!!
and also for May! We have lots of company and travel coming up in April, so I didn't want to get behind.
And finally, another UFO finished! Remember I showed you the quilting in this post? I finally finished stitching the binding. I'm really pleased with this quilt. It's sort of a "leftover" quilt, made with blocks leftover from various swaps, or blocks that weren't enough for a quilt on their own. It was just amazing how they all came together and worked so nicely in this quilt. Peggy gave me the "tree" blocks that make up the outer border. Can you believe there was almost exactly enough blocks for the entire border? I only made ONE extra tree block. Amazing!
